Morgan Hungerford-West started A CREATIVE DC in 2015 as a social media hashtag to highlight DC's creative movers and shakers. It has since blossomed into a full-fledged online and IRL movement that acknowledges, promotes, collaborates with, and supports the artist/maker community in and around the city. Morgan's indomitable passion for showcasing DC as an creative capital has made her not only a great friend to the community and those in it, but also a major force in local politics as a champion of the arts scene.

As a volunteer for A Creative DC, my main projects have involved assisting in designing and setting up for events, including the A Creative DC + Made in DC launch party (photo, left), workshops at Wild Hand Workspace, and the A Creative DC + DC Public Library Foundation's Creative Co-Working Days.

"Nicole has lent invaluable hands-on, visual, and organizational assistance and V I B E S to the #aCreativeDC project at large, and has been a trusted member of our team for over a year and a half. We cannot say enough good things!"
