Education Programs Specialist
Penn State Center for the Performing Arts
Medora joined the board in August 2023
Center Region Down Syndrome Society is one of the best communities out there and I am honored and excited to contribute to the board, and to learn from everyone. At the Center for the Performing Arts, where I have worked since 2007, we create conditions for everyday awe. I identify and develop new ways to bring communities together to significantly change the quality of performing arts experiences. Performance can be used to explore almost anything and I have co-created numerous programs and curricula for cultivating voice and agency. I have worked in nonprofit arts organizations my entire career, and am a practicing visual artist. My superpower is advocacy. Something I am most proud of is my ongoing commitment to working through the arts for a more just, equitable, and inclusive society.
