According to Katie, cultural hierarchies are no longer relevant and collaboration is key. Through ArtFlow, she aims to add value to brands through culturally relevant art programs and initiatives.
‘Today consumers are in search of meaning and values. Forward-thinking brands and companies know that culture is an exceptional way to build stories and create emotional connections. It must come from a place of brand authenticity.’
