Cultural Architects are creative people with a passion for humanity and inspiring others. They are intellectual creative thinkers who have found and continue to pursue ways to better the world around them. The 'smart guy,' the 'nerd,' and the 'intellectual creative thinker' must have a place in society. The Cultural Architect Award embraces and encourages them onward for the continued growth, development, and heartbeat of our social fabric.
