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.
