Kim Keith is a catalyst for creative oriented endeavors in Northwest Colorado with an eye for innovation and creative problem-solving. Her prodigious creative skill set and experience revolving around design, marketing and event coordination, advocacy and community development ensure a multi-faceted approach to the Steamboat Springs Arts Council non-profit organization (DBA: Steamboat Creates), benefiting the entire region of Routt County and Northwest Colorado. Kim is the Executive Director of Steamboat Creates and also serves on the CO Humanities Board of Directors, Colorado Mountain College Advisory Committee, the Routt County Economic Development Council, many task force and community collaborations. Prior to becoming an arts administrator and certified Change Leader through the Colorado Creative Industries, she worked as a creative consultant for Advocates – Building Peaceful Communities, conceptualizing and creating a symbol for the victims that had been helped by the Advocates organizations in their 30 year history (2013). Over 7,000 origami doves were folded, each one to represent each person helped by Advocates: men and women, children and adults, those who died and those who survived.
Kim believes that everyone has the capacity to create and through the creative process, we can live a more informed, empathetic and healthier life. She harnesses the powerful forces of talented staff, complimentary nonprofits, thousands of passionate volunteers, entrepreneurs and students. Art has the capacity to heal our hearts, communicate our
unique perspective and maximize our social sector to create the change we want to see in the world, in our communities and in ourselves.
Kim is an accomplished artist in her own right with work including sculpture installations, mixed media, poetry and photography. With numerous gallery exhibitions and vast commissioned work, her art resides in private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
