Welcoming Stephanie George as Development Manager
We are so excited to welcome Stephanie George as Development Manager here at Cave Canem!
Stephanie George is a storyteller, curator, and grassroots fundraiser, from the Bronx, NY. She has built a career as a cultural worker at MoCADA, the Hank Willis Thomas Studio/ Cause Collective, Harlem Stage, and recently at Materials for the Arts. Her debut public art exhibition “SELFiE” (2015) was featured in Huffington Post, Salon, and Ebony Magazine. When not fundraising, Stephanie has provided dramaturgy and direction to film, dance, theatre, and poetry projects, including Esperance Theatre Company’s “Breitwisch Farm,” J. Bouey’s “Chiron in Leo,” and Jordan Lloyd’s “Last Moon in Mellowland.” With frequent collaborator Benedict Nguyễn, she’s collaborated on the curatorial platform soft bodies in hard places and co-founded The Nerve Studio. She has contributed to projects presented at AAWW, BAAD!, Brooklyn Museum, CPR, ISSUE Project Room, Pepatián, and Recess. As a poet, Stephanie delights in returning to her poetry to create spaces that grapple with notions of home, belonging, and remembering.
In Stephanie’s own words: “I am thrilled to join Cave Canem at this critical moment of expansion. Since the beginning of my career, I have learned that in order to champion Black artists, it is essential to support the ecosystems and networks that nourish them. I am excited to further Cave Canem’s exciting fundraising efforts to ensure that Black poets continue to have a home that uplifts their voices. Cave Canem has been necessary to my growth as a Black artist and poet, and I’m honored to join this dynamic team to help elevate Black artists pushing the boundaries of expression and language.”
