Programming

I believe that public programming can make connections, expand ideas, and create community. I'm especially interested in uplifting underrepresented voices in interdisciplinary conversation that are widely accessible. 

 As a Public Programs Fellow at the Brooklyn Museum, I was involved in an array of programs including performances, screenings, and conversations. With the Public Programs team, I created proposals, engaged collaborators, drafted promotional material, and provided day-of support. 

I remain a Freelance Public Program Coordinator at the Museum , supporting First Saturday and the residency of the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra.
