Unique Robinson in Baltimore Magazine

Local engagement is essential to MICA’s mission as a College, and members of our community consistently devote their time and talent to the city we call home. Two such individuals — Unique Robinson, director of the MFA in Community Arts program, and Stacy Stube, associate director of creative entrepreneurship at MICA — were recently hailed by local publications for their impactful presence in Baltimore.

Robinson — a queer multimedia performance artist, poet, and educator — is currently the subject of a feature story in Baltimore Magazine’s special “Game Changers” issue, with the publication spotlighting her influential and inspirational presence for the city’s LBGTQ+ community.

The special issue of Baltimore Magazine is sharing the stories of people who are working everyday to make Baltimore thrive. Baltimore
 recently named Stube a ReaLIST Connector. The publication’s ReaLIST Connectors are a who’s who in local technology, entrepreneurship, and business communities. Stube was hailed for using her role at MICA to connect the College’s entrepreneurs with resources and networks that facilitate their ventures’ success.

The publication cited 20 members of the Baltimore community for keeping the city’s tech ecosystem thriving through work creating events, building networks, and guiding young entrepreneurs.
