Hi, my name is Kate. I use the pronouns she/her(s). I am a multidisciplinary artist, facilitator, and researcher.
As part of my MFA graduate thesis, I designed, facilitated, and researched an applied drama/theatre project with young people in recovery from alcohol and other drugs. My work explored critical moments on a young person’s path to recovery and how drama/theatre can support conditions for belonging among youth in recovery, as well as provide possibilities for youth to affect how they make meaning and name the world. Prior to my graduate studies, I spent eight years working in the fields of education, arts/entertainment, health/wellness, and technology.
I live on occupied Tonkawa and Lipan Apache territory, also known as Central Texas, where I teach, play, and make art for my own healing rooted in a vision of self-determination and collective liberation.
I hold a B.A in Media and Theatre Arts from Montana State University in Bozeman, and an M.F.A in Drama and Theatre for Youth and Communities from the University of Texas at Austin. I am a certified yoga teacher, permaculture designer, and labor doula. CV available upon request. Thank you for being here.
