Director of Communications
Angelika Lee, Director of Communications, is a translator, synthesizer and storyteller. She is responsible for the strategic direction and implementation of the Creative Many brand, communications and audience development. Angelika understands content quickly and adapts communication techniques to reach broad and diverse audiences across the creative industries. With a passion for narrative development and social justice, she works within our portfolio to highlight the stories of individuals, businesses and communities who connect around the power of creativity. Her background consulting in strategic communication design spans the corporate, philanthropic and non-profit sectors, allowing her to understand their intersections and identify opportunities for creative collaborations. As an artist and creative professional, Angelika uses humor to communicate relevant and complex ideas to diverse audiences – leveraging the art of comedy to expand connections and mutual understanding. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is a member of Funny Girls, a collective of all-female comedic artists dedicated to empowering women through comedy, as well as a member of the 2016 Racial Equity in Action Leadership cohort led by the National Equity Project out of Oakland, California.
Prior to joining Creative Many in 2017, Angelika led complex communication and branding projects with a team of expert communication strategists, writers and designers at Williams Group in Grand Rapids. Before returning to Michigan to pursue her career in professional communication, she was active in social justice and nonprofit communities in Chicago and New Jersey. As an Americorp volunteer through Amate House, a program of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Angelika began her passion for serving the aging community as a program manager for Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly Chicago Chapter, a nonprofit organization dedicated to relieving loneliness among those growing old alone. Her dedication to social justice was sparked during a summer in Princeton, New Jersey where she worked as a counselor for Leaderworx, a summer social justice program for teens.
Angelika earned her bachelor of arts in communication and theology from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI.
