LUNCH: Kat Redniss, Inclusive Arts Vermont
Introduction to Inclusive Arts Vermont - an Arts Program focused on Vermonters with disabilities

At the behest of the Essex Rotary DEI Committee (that's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion), we will learn about the mission and services provided by Inclusive Arts Vermont.  This St. Albans-based non-profit has strong Essex connections through staff members.


Just this week the work of IAV was highlighted by Vermont Public in an article: How this Vermont Organization is Making the Arts More Accessible for Artists and Patrons with Disabilities.  


Katie brings experience and focus to IAV - as you can see from her bio: 

Katie Miller joined the staff of Inclusive Arts Vermont in May 2016 as Development & Communications Director. She came to the organization after working for a variety of arts and youth empowerment organizations across the east coast. Katie enjoys bringing together her background as an artist and skills in nonprofit management to serve the community. As the parent of a young child with disabilities and an artist herself, she feels a strong personal connection to our mission.

Katie brings enthusiasm and humor to her work as well as extensive experience in program development, communications, and fundraising. She has a passion for inclusion and completed her graduate research on how to make the arts more accessible to rural communities. She has a BFA in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology, an MA in Arts Administration from Savannah College of Art & Design, and a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from Marlboro College.

In her free time, Katie enjoys writing, painting along to Bob Ross videos, photography, cooking, and spending time with her family.
