About Kara

Kara LaFleur received her BFA in Photography with a minor in Bookmaking from the University of the Arts, where she focused on alternative image making processes. After graduation, her involvement with the Center for Emerging Visual Artists provided experience in the Non-Profit and Arts and Culture Sectors, primarily in administrative and development roles. Kara further developed her interest in community organizing and youth outreach as the Director of Summer Programming at Work to Ride, a non-profit prevention program providing disadvantaged youth with activities surrounding horsemanship, equine sports and education. She continues to volunteer with this amazing program and is in the midst of a long term photographic project about WTR, for which she received a Leeway Art and Change grant in 2008. Kara joined the Night Kitchen Interactive team in 2007, coordinating marketing communications, strategies, and events while applying her passion for community engagement and grassroots marketing to help promote client projects and facilitate visitor participation through a variety of social media tools. In 2008 she co-founded Geeks Who Give on the premise of open source community giving, mobilizing the Philadelphia tech scene and channeling their powerful and positive energy towards socially-conscious causes. While 2009 was her year of community generated content, including increased involvement with Barcamp Philly, Ignite Philly, and TEDxPhilly; 2010 has seen Kara continue to learn and grow through ongoing participation in events and leadership roles within the community, looking forward to new challenges and adventures in Arts & Culture. Kara LaFleur is a Geek Socialite who has a tendency to Laugh Out Loud, and thinks others should too.
