The organizational move to Winston-Salem has brought with it exciting opportunities and talented new team members! In January of this year Victoria Fulton joined the EmcArts team as Program Manager.
Victoria is is a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Before joining EmcArts as Program Manager, she served as the Program Manager for Project Impact with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Prior to that role, she served as the Director of Historic Bethabara Park, the first Moravian settlement in North Carolina.
As a co-teacher with the “I Was There” project in Providence, RI, Victoria worked alongside a cross-disciplinary team of teaching artists and historians to create immersive oral history and arts-based programming for elementary students. The “I Was There” project was the recipient of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities’ inaugural Innovation Award in 2014.
Victoria is also an alumna of City Year Greater Philadelphia, an AmeriCorps program, where she spent two terms as a corps member and team leader at South Philadelphia High School. Victoria’s past project- and exhibit-based work has taken her to organizations including Philadelphia’s First Person Arts, Hong Kong’s HULU Culture, and the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
Victoria holds a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in American Studies and Creative Writing, and an MA in Public Humanities from the John Nicholas Brown Center at Brown University. Outside of work, Victoria enjoys playing a number of instruments with minimal skill and devoting increasingly-absurd levels of attention to her three cats.
We are also excited to welcome Jacinta White as a Process Facilitator working with our New Pathways | Charlotte program. Jacinta previously worked with EmcArts in the Community Innovation Lab in Winston-Salem. She had this to say about working with EmcArts again in this new capacity: “I am excited to join EMC Arts as a process facilitator for the New Pathways program. Having worked with them in the past I know first hand the meaningful work that they do and I am honored to work alongside such talented staff and facilitators, and to work within arts organizations during transformative work.”
