About Creative Mingle:
In March 2019 Creative Santa Fe hosted The Future of Art: A Disruptive Futures Dialogue. Program audiences were asked the question “What are some new projects we can initiate now to support our arts community?” Attendees identified over 220 ideas in response, – the majority addressing the need for more arts networking opportunities in Santa Fe. Creative Santa Fe responded to this finding with the program series Creative Mingle launched in 2019. The first two events of the series in partnership with the Santa Fe Opera and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum were a smashing success. After the events attendees reported an average of 6 new connections per person, 45% reported that they discovered a new organization or business, and 32% found a new collaborator. In 2020 Creative Santa Fe will be focusing the series on unique areas of the arts community to spark positive impacts within topics such as social justice, education, and nightlife.
