What drew you to the MA Arts Politics program?
The faculty. The focus on the individual's arts narrative and the opportunity to examine my own work from a variety of study areas.
How did your experience in the program shape your work?
I understood my work better. It made sense. I was able to step back from it and remember all of the projects and performances I had taken part in and realize that I was a practitioner of something and that my engagement was activism at work and that it was purposeful and not just me guessing in the wind as I sometimes felt it was.
What are you doing now?
I'm a high school Reading teacher and a humanities professor. I recently took an exam prep course for the project management exam and hope to find my way into project management and cultural diplomacy soon.
