Happy new year Cohomies!
2016 was incredible year for the Coho Events team to say the least. In the past 12 months the CE crew connected with passionate brands and nonprofits across the country. We witnessed electrifying events that wouldn’t have been possible without the energy invested by all of the Coho family utilizing our platform to create unforgettable experiences for their communities.
We’re happy to take a moment to recognize one special person as Coho Event’s Host Of The Year: Dr. Stephen Kinney! Dr. Kinney is a well spoken and hard working man with sincere vision to unite people, period, regardless of beliefs or circumstance. His dedication to creating community through engaging dialogues and amplified arts endeavors has certainly not gone unnoticed in the Austin area.
Stephen spearheads The Front Porch, an Austin based organization dedicated to building compassionate community through over 50 dialogue focused events a year. The Coho team was thrilled to take part in The Crisis In Music In Austin, a special night of music industry discussion cohosted by Philip Marshall and featuring Austin Mayor Steve Adler and music historian Ted Gioia. We’re looking forward to Dr. Kinney’s follow up gathering about Austin music industry dialogue, slated for sometime in 2017.
Coming up in March, Dr. Kinney’s Front Porch is throwing an incredibly joyous event called the Easter Vigil. This gathering at sunset will include music and entertainment, hosted by community leaders and members from all faiths and backgrounds to celebrate together without boundaries.It’s sure to be a real celebration of life for any and all!
Our own Cohomie Louis Pratt had the pleasure of sitting down with Stephen to discuss his personal ethos on events and community. Check in with the interview and be sure to keep good ear open for all the exciting events Stephen and The Front Porch have in store for 2017.
