What exactly is a teaching artist?

Teaching artistry, for me, is an essentially important part of being an artist that contributes to their community in a more direct, hands-on approach. I believe in the healing power of art, and using art and drama as a tool to access overlooked voices in our society.


My Philosophy

I am a teaching artist because I want to give back to the community and share art with the world; to expand art outside middle class theatre and gallery spaces.  

When I work as an artist, I try to bring my political values into my work, even if they are not in the final production. I can’t create without passion, freedom, and the ability to explore my own interests. I want my art to inspire, to educate, to speak in ancient tongues, to tap into a need for expression which has not been accessed yet, to contribute to society.
