My work focuses on strategy, training, facilitation, coaching and creative projects that advance racial equity and social justice. I do this work as an independent consultant and artist, and as Manager of Arts & Racial Equity at the City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative, a position within the Office of Arts & Culture and in partnership Office for Civil Rights. Since 2003, I have designed and run arts-based alternatives to youth incarceration, including King County’s Creative Justice, which received a 2016 Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review Award. My artistic practice, like all of my work, honors the alchemic power of relationships – from meditative installations that organize my collection of loved, urban detritus to social projects that organize people to action for racial justice through performance, ritual, dialogue and object creation. I approach all of my work from my multiple positions as a white, Jewish, female artist and mother with Venezuelan cultural heritage.
