Join us for an evening of fun and inspirational conversation! Seven X 7 events connect the dots among people doing things more people should know about through curated conversation and insight generation. Hatched at Studio71 (nee Collective Digital Studio) in 2013, Seven X 7 is a community of storytellers celebrating insights on innovation, collaboration and inspiration!
7 storytellers, from 7 different companies or 'callings' (creators, entrepreneurs, philanthropists) get 7 minutes each to answer 7 questions on what drives them...all by 7pm!
5:30pm: Get in the door, grab a sip and a bite and prepare for what's next!
6pm: Kickoff - the first of our Seven Storytellers hits the stage!
7pm: Storytelling concludes...connect the dots over more sips & bites.
We recommend parking across the street in Parking Structure #8 next to True Food Kitchen. The first 90 minutes is free, then $1.00 for the next hour, and $1.50 for every 30 minutes after that.
Please note that by RSVPing to this event you are agreeing to receive communications from Studio 71.

Spectrum (Visual Art Marketplace)
Curtis Simmons Founded NWO Art Gallery in 2012. The NWO Art Gallery was built on one principle, making art the fundamental building block of everyday life. We believe wholeheartedly in the advancement of creativity. Together with our artists, we aim to expand upon the traditional gallery format.
About two years ago I had an idea for a mobile art application called Spectrum. I secured the funding needed for development and I’ve built a skeleton marketing campaign prior to the apps release on the Apple store. I've acquired 5,000 email addresses of leading artists as collateral against zero downloads at launch. I’ve done the research, surveyed the market, ran real life experiments, and all results are reading that Spectrum is scalable.

Kelly Phillips Badal
Writer, Editor, and Content Strategist for Travel,
(Lifestyle & Home Publications)
I've worn a ton of different hats while working for some of the nation's largest magazines and websites. Lifestyle editor. Beauty editor. Fashion editor. Home design editor. DIY & crafts editor. And lately, after taking time away from years of beloved on-staff positions to travel extensively, I've become a travel editor too. (I have a lot of passions -- and contact lists!) But bottom line, I love smart stories told well, stories that compel readers to take action. And I'm not limited to print. I've translated content across social media, web sites, video, and tablet editions. I know how to write that viral headline or how to create an on-brand image that'll garner hundreds of likes on Instagram.
