RISE Program Coordinator - Halifax
Stephanie is a settler, artist and community worker living in Kjipuktuk (Halifax) the unceded and unsurrendered ancestral land of the Mi'kmaq people. Since moving to Kjipuktuk in 2008, she has found a sense of self through engaging in a network of communities devoted to reflection, learning and the building and maintaining of relationships. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from NSCAD University where she focused on nonverbal communication. Her career in the arts has allowed her to travel across North America to create space for dialogue on the intersections of gender and race. The aim of her work, both artistic and not, is to present accessible entry points to lesser known concepts and perspectives.
She has an affinity for disco, dancing and food made with butter.
"I'm still in shock that an organization like Apathy is Boring exists, let alone that I get to work for it! Everyday I see new ways my colleagues reach out to support one another. I truly believe in the programming because it is carried forward by folks who consistently ask themselves, "How can we make things better for everyone?"
