We’re calling them stars. They are shining examples of the College of Arts & Media because of their choices. They have chosen to establish purpose to their creative and artistic vision. They have chosen to challenge the doubters and nay-sayers. They have chosen to do what they love and to do it with meaningful intent. Most importantly, they have chosen to do all of this at the University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media. They are creators, innovators, thought-leaders, students, artists and nothing short of amazing. They are leaders of their class and craft and they are our 2016 SXSW CAM Ambassadors.

“We have a common connection of wanting to make something beautiful through the arts in our lifetime. I want to do that as well, but help the lives of others while doing it.”
