Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public program initiative at the National Museum of Women in the Arts highlighting the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change that launched in October 2015. FRESH TALK, the signature program of the initiative, expands the dialogue on what it means to be champions of women through the arts. Programs feature curated conversations with leading innovators and thought leaders from a range of disciplines discussing cause-driven topics that are relevant to diverse audiences today. Audiences add their voice to the conversation with Sunday Supper, table talk and dinner served family-style, or Catalyst, a cocktail hour with a topic and a twist.

In my role as public programs coordinator throughout the inaugural year of WASC, I designed participatory activities as guided experiences for audiences. Additionally, I led Cultural Capital partnerships with leading D.C.-area organizations, connecting with the museum and with new audiences for programs with a cause-driven focus.
