Hello friends! It’s been a long hiatus from this blog. I’ve been spending lots of time with family. But I’ve also been leaning heavily into my work at StateraArts, a nonprofit dedicated to gender parity in the arts. I serve as their Operations Director and I love the work!
In the past five months, I’ve been a part of some incredible collaborations. The StateraArts team is a force of nature and I’m so grateful to be part of a joyful grassroots movement taking positive action to bring women into full and equal participation in the arts and beyond. If you’re interested, you can read all about it: Statera Mentorship, Support Women Artists Now Day, Statera’s National Conference in NYC, the Statera Resource Directory, partnering with the Parent Artist Advocacy League, and more!
My next big adventure will be a trip to NYC and the East Hamptons to be a part of Andromeda’s Sisters, a three day gathering for arts activists hosted by The Neo-Political Cowgirls. NPC has invited me, as a part of StateraArts, to lead a creative workshop and panel on the final day of the gathering. Andromeda’s Sisters is a three-day gathering of advocacy, networking, play readings, and arts. Speakers and artists include Tamara Tunie (Law & Order), Catharine Curtin (Stranger Things), Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents), Laura Gomez (Orange is the New Black), and Ellen Dolan (Guiding Light), Joy Behar (The View), and Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) among others).
