Abby is a cultural producer who is involved in initiatives sitting at the nexus of the creative economy and civic engagement. She is interested in leveraging the collective power and resources of this next generation of wealth and creative talent to find more sustainable solutions to building a just and equitable creative economy. Abby is particularly focused on Chicago and is currently working on launching a Chicago-based platform called Gertie which leverages live events and partnerships with arts institutions to increase engagement with the arts and culture ecosystem in the city. To this end, most recently, Abby produced Skin in the Game, a 50 artist exhibition in Chicago's Fulton Market neighborhood in partnership with Jeff Shapack and Alec and Jennifer Litowitz.
The Chicago Transformation Collab brought Chicagoans together who are on the frontlines in the fight for justice.
