Emily considers herself a ringleader of community building experiences that use hands-on activities to nurture curiosity, encourage social bridging, and fuel empowerment. She has studied various art forms across the globe that inspired her to facilitate a range of engaging learning opportunities in cultural organizations in Baltimore, Eugene, San Francisco, and most recently in Santa Cruz, California. She comes to Slow Food Denver after working in theatre, after-school programming, community arts outreach, and running public programs in various gallery spaces, market places, and museums. At heart, Emily is a mover, maker and collaborative doer who is dedicated to implementing dynamic workshops that allow people to work together while simultaneously finding their the own power to dig deeper creatively. One of Emily’s most favorite things is watching things grow: people, plants & projects.
