Alexa Fairchild Local Program Director Turnaround Arts: New York City

I direct Turnaround Arts: New York City, a program run by The Kennedy Center that transforms priority schools through the strategic use of the arts. For ten years, I ran school programs at the Brooklyn Museum, leading a talented team of educators and hosting kids and teachers for fun, engaging gallery experiences. My professional life includes serving on the Board of Directors for the Museum Education Roundtable and contributing as a peer reviewer to its publication, the Journal of Museum Education. I'm an advisor to the Women's International Leadership Program at International House and ArtWorks NYC, and I served two years as president of the New York City Museum Educators Roundtable. I've worked at the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia (U.B.C.) in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada; Lower East Side Tenement Museum; and Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. My graduate degrees are from Bank Street College of Education (M.S. in Ed.) and U.B.C. (M.A. in Art History). And when I'm not geeking out about the arts and education you’ll find me careening down the side of a mountain, on skis or a bike, depending on the season. I tweet as @alexainbrooklyn.

Hark all ye merry museum educators! Come and be joyous with colleagues and friends at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine for an evening of NYCMER holiday celebrations. We look forward to decking the hallowed halls of the Cathedral with festive activities, delightful refreshments, and ample opportunities to connect with NYCMER members and their guests.

 

Is getting more active in NYCMER on your list of New Year's resolutions? Members from the NYCMER Board, Peer Groups, and Conference Committee will be present to toast to the new year with you and discuss their experiences. Learn about opportunities to get the most out of NYCMER in 2019 through peer groups, monthly programs, board elections, and the annual conference!

 

Special Holiday Cheer! NYCMER members and guests will be granted access to a seldom seen portion of the Cathedral - the Guastavino Staircase! Exclusive access to the entire institution will also be available for all attendees to view. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!


Accessibility:

NYCMER is committed to providing opportunities for all of our members to participate in our programs and engage with one another. The main entrance requires using stairs, but the Cathedral is wheelchair accessible via a ramp just north of the main entrance, off of Amsterdam Avenue below 113th Street. Should you require any accessibility services, please contact info@nycmer.org by Tuesday, December 4, 2018.
