Make a gift to help keep Atlanta Contemporary free, safe, and open to all.
A passionate believer in the power of the arts to open minds & shift perspectives, Lauren is forever committed to exploring all the world has to offer. Having spent 8 years in Los Angeles - first as a student at USC & later as a doyenne of LA’s underground music scene - Lauren got a true taste of contemporary culture & how it shapes the way we engage with the world. After recognizing the need for experiences that bring people together for a cause greater than revelry for revelry’s sake, Lauren began developing the AVANTGARTE concept while obtaining her M.A. in Business Design & Arts Leadership from SCAD Atlanta. With her compass pointed towards enriching experiences that enlighten & inspire, she aims to share her deep faith in human potential with those who are committed to making a positive impact.
