Lucas Spivey scrapped his PhD plans to become a “BFA/MBA Road Warrior”, driving across 48 states in the Mobile Incubator - a handbuilt broadcast studio inside a ‘57 camper towed by a ‘73 ambulance - meeting with thousands of artists, performers, writers, designers, makers, and other cultural entrepreneurs. Born in MN, raised in rural WI, AK, SC and GA, and living between WA and MA, he’s moved almost every year of his life.
Lucas is the founder of the podcast, exhibition and documentary series Culture Hustlers; and founder of the experimental art center 17 Cox. Lucas received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Art & Art History, and his MBA in Finance. Since 2010, Lucas has pioneered a 100% experiential learning model for thousands of individual creators. He’s developed experiential programs for Harvard University, Ringling College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other institutions, and produced storytelling for local government offices, business incubators, and service organizations like Arts & Business Council, Gener8tor, and Boston Center for the Arts.
