NY Creative Interns Conference Speaker Highlight: Charlie Grosso, Co-Founder and Director of Baang + Burne Contemporary

We’re excited to announce another amazing speaker added to our line up for Find and Follow Your Passion on April 21, 2012. Meet Charlie Grosso, Co-Founder and Director of Baang + Burne Contemporary.

Charlie Grosso is the co-founder and director of Baang and Burne Contemporary, an unconventional art gallery with the spirit of an indie rock band. The mission of Baang and Burne is to make art the agent for social change and not merely a product.

Charlie has often being accused of being a spy when she is traveling for work. She has had many incarnations before adding gallery director to her long list of disguises. Her long list of characters include, photographer, creative director, adventurer, fire starter, world traveler, writer, possible spy with all of these various identities working towards the same goal, to progress in Art Revolution/World Domination/Spy Mission. To add to the madness, she will also be undertaking The Mongol Rally this summer, driving a small car from London, UK to Mongolia for charitable causes.

We have tons more to share with you, so check back often for new announcements. Head to our conference site for more details. You’ll meet amazing professionals like Charlie, and make great friends and future collaborators.

If you had a chance, what would you ask Charlie? Check out her Twitter and website, and let us know in the comments.
