What is Social Artistry?
Social Artistry LLC was founded in the midst of the pandemic in May 2020 by Lauren Balcita Garces, a city-wide event producer and artist based in San Diego. The launch of Social Artistry LLC represents a blossoming new era, one dedicated to diving deeper into serving and empowering the diverse communities within San Diego through event production, media creation, program consulting and marketing strategies.
Its founder, Garces, is a leader and advocate in the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community. She serves as President of the National Association of Asian American Professionals – San Diego chapter. She also directs marketing, outreach and events for the Asian Business Association of San Diego. And she is passionate about providing platforms and connections for diverse communities and cultures in order for them to be highlighted and empowered.
What Does Social Artistry Do?
Social Artistry aims to produce detail-oriented events, marketing strategies, media and program consultations centered around authentic attendee engagement and cultural experiences. Through the channeling of art and creativity, the company aims to build up people and organizations within the community to effect change.
