Staff, board, committees, interns: people who make the Arts Council happen.
Taylor is a Saginaw native, but a Lansing transplant, earning her M.A. in Arts & Cultural Management in 2016, and a
B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science, as well as Minors in Theatre and Arts & Cultural Management
from Michigan State University. Her current roles at the Arts Council include
Membership Coordinator, Artists-in-Residence Coordinator, Arts Night Out
Coordinator, as well as fulfilling the office’s administrative needs.
The Arts have been a part of her life since a
young age and she has always felt compelled to pursue them. During her time in Lansing, she has gained both academic and professional experience
in the Arts, focused around programming, community development, educational
outreach, and grant writing. She served as Grant Coordinator for the Anton Art
Center in Mt. Clemens, MI where she facilitated the MCACA’s Minigrant Program
for Region 10b, as well as developed funding proposals to support the
organization’s programming objectives.
She has also worked for arts organizations such as the State-wide arts
agency, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Wharton Center
for Performing Arts.
Whether studying the Arts in New York City, or being a
Teaching Artist in Lansing schools, Taylor is dedicated to connecting
communities through a mutual passion for the purpose of life: creation.
