I have experience curating and executing public programs for Arts Greensboro and the National Folk Festival, The Textile Museum, and more.
The first-annual Carolina Food Summit kicked off the 2016 TerraVita Food & Drink Festival on September 28 and 29, 2016. Working with a three-person team and outside advisors, I helped to conceptualize and manage this event, which is slated to become an annual gathering. The Carolina Food Summit is a partnership between EdNC.org, the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, TerraVita, and the UNC-Chapel Hill Food For All 2015-2017 university-wide research theme.

Fabric of Freedom
Fabric of Freedom was a series of arts programs that celebrated the diversity and cultural history of Greensboro, host city for the National Folk Festival (2015–2017). Exhibits, music, dance, community events, and more were presented in venues across the city throughout September. As program curator and coordinator, I conceived and produced these events. I also designed the Fabric of Freedom logo and brochure.
PM @ The TM, The Textile Museum
I helped to establish PM @ The TM, The Textile Museum's first program series for young professionals. For each special exhibition, a themed event with cocktails, gallery tours and hands-on activities, helped draw in new audiences. Programs included an urban picnic, a mod-themed garden party (including silkscreening!), an outside film screening in the museum's gardens, and more. (Photo by Max Cook.)
