Park County Creative Alliance leader Ann Lukacs honored with CCI Leadership Award
Governor Polis and the Colorado Creative Industries (CCI) division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) recently announced this year’s recipients of the Govenor’s Creative Leadership Awards, an annual award program which recognizes Coloradans who have demonstrated a significant commitment to the state’s creative landscape through civic leadership and volunteerism. President of the Park County Creative Alliance (PCCA) and longtime Park County local Ann Lukacs is one of the 2023 recipients!
Ann was recently certified a Colorado Change Leader by Governor Jared Polis for exceptional community development efforts. As part of her certification, Lukacs created the PCCA, a nonprofit arts alliance dedicated to uniting Park County through the arts. Since December 2018, PCCA has united local artists, delivered educational workshops, created the Art Adventuring in Park County map, launched a successful annual Pass Notes event, and more.
Ann is being awarded the Arts and Community Action Award, which is presented to individuals that have demonstrated selfless service and inspired others to take action or catalyze change in their community using the arts. Artist, photographer, cinematographer, small business owner, and nonprofit board member, she continues to be dedicated to preserving and advancing arts and culture in Colorado and in her community.
“The Governor’s Creative Leadership Award recipients embody the remarkable ways in which arts and culture impact Coloradans’ lives and our communities. Each has made a unique contribution to Colorado, and we are thrilled to recognize their achievements,” said Eve Lieberman, OEDIT Executive Director.
The awards will be presented on June 1, 2023 at the Colorado Creative Industries Summit to be held in Crested Butte.
