Emily Arden

Emily Arden
Creative Soul, Dancer, Educator, and Idealist.
 
Emily has a passion for all things slightly off the beaten path. Her wanderings have taken her from California to New Orleans, Washington State to Philadelphia. She continues to return to Washington, DC, her second home, where she has had the privileged to work with a multitude of artists – from DJs to chefs, dancers to graffiti artists – to create entertaining and thought-provoking events and opportunities.
 
She has also been deeply involved in working with young people, in both traditional educational settings as well as in arts-related programming. Emily is passionate about supporting art and artists, as well as making art accessible to communities. She co-founded ReCreative Spaces, an organization dedicated to fostering creativity, collaboration, and community. She also did something creative everyday for a year via her blog, The Daily Creative Project.
