As an artist, manager, and individual, I believe the arts are a collective and a safehouse for people of all backgrounds to gather. As a queer, neurodivergent, disabled woman, I have fought for my own space, value, and opinions in my art and society. Neither I nor any artist or individual should have to fight to see themselves reflected in the arts community. It is the responsibility of the arts to tell and uplift the stories of those often not told. It is only through this method that positive social change and conscious thought will occur. I will prioritize and maintain strong, specific, and direct communication and collaboration with my team, so all voices and opinions are valued. I will embolden, advocate, and amplify the voices, identities, and art of those less privileged, less depicted, and unheard. I will cultivate an environment of respect for all those at the table, so that each member feels safe, confident, and appreciated. I will hold myself accountable for this mission and endeavor to continually perpetuate my own knowledge and research to ensure that my artist practice is honest and informed.
