Angela Brown shares the equation for action behind her creative work and successes.

Understanding when and where to take action can be the most important element to generating change. Drawing on 15 years of taking creative action in Salt Lake City (and helping change the face of the creative community in the process), Angela shares her personal approach to action in efforts like Slug Magazine, Craft Lake City and more. Special thanks to our CreativeMornings SLC video guru, Trent Jones.

About the speaker

Angela H. Brown has run SLUG Magazine for 15 years, turning a small black & white zine into a full-color magazine with a combined digital and monthly print circulation of 630,000 and gaining her recent recognition as the Josephine Zimmerman Pioneer in Journalism Award recipient from Utah’s chapter of the society of professional journalists. Along the way, she has created dozens of successful SLUG Mag community events—supporting local action sports, bands and artists—and launched, where readers can explore exclusive content, view photo galleries, download SLUG’s back issues, or listen to the mag’s weekly podcast, “Soundwaves.” In 2009, she launched Craft Lake City, a 501©3 nonprofit organization that showcases Utah’s handmade community with an annual DIY Festival. The festival features over 250 local artisans, a STEM building, 50 local performers and attracts more than 40,000 attendees each year.
