With nearly two decades of experience in the development and management of arts and cultural ventures, Thadeaous Mighell is deeply committed to cultivating exceptionalism within the local creative community. Mighell, a self-identified person of Latino and Native American descent, has devoted the next chapter of his career to increasing diversity within the arts and cultural sector, and positioning People of Color and People of Native American Descent to become prominent leaders in the field. Thadeaous currently serves as the co-curator of Understudy Arts Incubator Space and Program Director for Unit E Productions.

Annie Geimer was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, and after attending college in Chicago and a brief stint back in Denver, she landed in San Francisco working for Superfly Presents. At Superfly, Annie was directly involved in festival operations and logistics, and over time her mission became to strengthen the local art community by empowering creatives. She returned to Denver in 2014 and was hired by the non-profit arts organization,The Denver Theatre District, where she spearheaded programs for local artists; namely the arts incubator, Understudy. Annie has worked part time with Meow Wolf for 5 years, originally with the community outreach team and then as the Artist Liaison for the Convergence Station. Her work with Meow Wolf has been challenging and rewarding, requiring finite attention to detail, people and problem solving skills. Annie is an active practitioner of grace under pressure, and majored in getting her hands dirty. She’ll go to the moon and back for you, partly because she really likes it there. Ask her about the last dream she had.

Understudy is a 700 square foot arts and culture incubator space dedicated to creative exploration. Understudy provides a free, central, and innovative platform to artists and creative groups for experimentation. Located in the Colorado Convention Center (CCC) at 890 C 14th St., Understudy is operated, curated, and funded by the Denver Theatre District.
