Long before Steve Wood founded Concrete Couch in Colorado Springs, Colo., he was a rock-climbing artist, hands-on and heart-centered, an optimist willing to risk failure. He connected the dots of his personal passions.
Leading the 15-year-old arts and education organization that is Concrete Couch, Steve brings together the wise and the learning, the right and the left, the bold and those who need it in a community-lifting collaboration.
When Steve, 56, sat down with Humanitou, we talked about his eclectic skill set and his creative fearlessness, what makes a good teacher and what his legacy — after leading around 800 community art projects in the region and counting — really is about.
Humanitou highlights creativity and humanity in the Pikes Peak Region. Connect with insightful conversations and collected wisdom at humanitou.co.
