Mary Welcome

Multidisciplinary Cultural Worker (Palouse, Washington)

Session: The After Hours Hours (or why my bar tab is a valid expense for reimbursement) Friday, 3:45 – 5:00 pm

Mary Welcome (Palouse, Washington) is a multidisciplinary cultural worker collaborating with complex and often under-represented rural communities. As an artist-activist, her projects are rooted in community engagement and the development of intersectional programming to address hyper-local issues of equity, cultural advocacy, inclusivity, visibility, and imagination. She collaborates with local schools, city councils, civic groups, youth, summer camps, libraries, neighbors, and friends to build cooperative environments that encourage civic engagement, radical education, and community progress. She believes in small towns, long winters, optimists, parades, and talking about feelings.
