Curtis Walker
Studio Manager, Photo Bang Bang

Secretary I joined the neighborhood in 2010 when I opened Photo Bang Bang. I began serving the board in 2013 when I was hired to maintain and manage the 18b.org website and develop the social media presence. I work with BLVDS Magazine Adventurist Guide, Lyft and do freelance tech support on the side. I believe the City should waive business fees for artists in the arts district, and we should advocate for affordable live/work spaces for artists and creatives to establish themselves.

I developed an interest in downtown Las Vegas before I had moved here in December 2014. Growing up in Colorado Springs, I discovered my love for the natural hubs that downtowns create as destinations for art, music, eclecticism and alternative lifestyles. This love was solidified as I grew older, and experienced other downtowns of different cities. At the time, Las Vegas felt like it was at the precipice of a promising direction, and felt very much it was the place to be. However, my reasons are more than just wanting to be in a hip location of town. I firmly believe that for a city to have a strong arts and cultural scene, the weave of its downtown must be strong. Las Vegas is fractured somewhat, with other areas of town designating their own “downtown” areas, which do not reflect an artists’ culture, but more of a master-planned shopping center. Because of this, it has always been important to me to make sure that everyone knew where the true center of creativity was happening in Las Vegas, and to do what I could with whatever agency I had to bring people there and to preserve its culture. Downtowns are important and are, essentially, the heart of any city.
