"Lydia Knopp is an independent curator and freelance social designer with a passion for sharing stories. As a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design, she continues to freelance between Philadelphia and her hometown of Kansas City where she serves as Creative Connector at Tico Productions, LLC. When "off the clock", she designs for Evolving Magazine, dances daily, and will soon begin mural-making with middle schoolers and her community development association. She finds inspiration in simple truths: fresh food, music with beat, long laughs, the natural world, and her dog, Daisy. Her philosophy? Be kind, do good, get better.
