Helping Ideas, Elements and People Come Together:

:

Digital Performance Group

In this project I created a conceptual space for collaboration across various departments (completely unique to the university system) which implemented new technologies and allowed participation from students/staff/and faculty.  The framework (called Elements) I created, allowed for egalitarian creation of new content which fully integrated technology, aesthetic modes, and varied topics/approaches.  It was a complex feat to propose, organize, recruit, and find space and support for such an ambitious project.  I also created the structure for both face-to-face meetings, use of blog and teleconferencing for meetings, and a workshop period in which most of the digital content was created an integrated with live performers. 

Sonoma County Book Festival This was a wonderful opportunity lead a local community organization to stage a live event across multiple venues, and help coordinate people (multiple committees) and  such as publicity, venues, and vendors.   We did exceptionally well both financially and in terms of attendance the year I was in charge.

Sonoma County Book Festival Here you can get a sense of both sponsors and the logistics of the event which ran for 13-14 years.  I also did the layout for these.

Here you can see the scale of the event which took over Santa Rosa’s Court house square.  Notice the many smiling vendors and participants.  Pictured are also the authors reading and several other adult and children’s venues.

Web site - Sebastopol Center for the Arts

This is an example of a web information design.  I build and developed this site from scratch around the structure of the organization and its offerings with great care to include all the aspects of the SCA.  I have training in information design and have created many online and CD based projects which organize and categorize information in a clear and deep way.

Women's Global Leadership Initiative

For 3-4 years I invested myself in multiple aspects of the Women’s Global Leadership Initiative working directly under the founder and helping her clarify the goals and mission statement, leading the marketing team, writing and vetting curriculum, creating new public events, facilitating public forums, creating systems for volunteers, and serving on the board and loving strategic planning committee work.

Re-Membering Harmony

This unique project was based in community need.  Although the outcome was in the form of an interactive (digital/live) performance, it was really about inviting the community back into a reused site and allowing for healing and the transition into its new use (partially) as a public art center.  The project took quite a bit of planning and coordination as well as interviewing, scripting, logistics, technology, working with a local school and board, as well as community meetings.  It was a wonderful success and accomplished not only a very unique performance, but began a healing process that the town and its new school desperately needed.

Organization Other

(Conference planning, panels, committees, boards)

I have worked on multiple committees and boards which all require teamwork and planning.  I have chaired panels at conferences on relevant, timely and emerging topics and helped coordinate two conferences (one national and one international) as well as attending and speaking at many myself.
