Meet Libby Bowling, a Herron High School senior, and the Harrison Center's 2016 IMAF, Independent Music + Art Festival cultural entrepreneur intern. Libby is planning the entire festival with the help of an advisory board guiding her along. She thinks it's been a great lesson in accountability and organization and has given her confidence to go after what she wants and to know what she can offer as well.
In addition to her developing event planning experience, Libby brings to her internship some mad tour guide skills as well. By biking all around town, Libby has discovered new places and developed a greater respect and appreciation for Indianapolis and the people who live and work here. She has become so well versed on the city and its trails that she has become a "go to" to give bike tours to our 48 hour songwriting residents and other interns new to Indianapolis.
Libby is planning to attend IUPUI in the fall and is interested in Urban Planning and Public Policy AND Community and Economic Development. I asked Libby if she has met any rock stars while planning the IMAF line up and she said they are all rock stars. (She's a really nice person.) But she has also had the opportunity to take 48 hour residents Lowland Hum and John Isaac Watters on bike tours of Indianapolis. Fun fact about Libby is that she just copped Kishi Bashi's Lighght and has been listening nonstop. Yeah, it's spelled right.
