Emily Anderson, Director of Creative Performance and Cultural Access at VSA Vermont, presents at the 9th Burlington Pecha Kucha Night.

"As the Director of Creative Performance and Cultural Access she is the founder/director of The Awareness Theater Company, an inclusive dramatic troupe made up of adults with developmental disabilities who perform original works on a variety of artistic, political and self-advocacy themes, and the author and project manager of the High School Self-Advocacy Theater Program. In addition to those projects, Emily is the coordinator of the Can Do Arts program which connects local visual and performing artists with adults with developmental disabilities. Prior to working for VSA Vermont, Anderson was an invaluable company member at The Bread and Puppet Theater, known internationally for its giant puppets, masks, street shows and pageants, centered on political themes. An important part of Anderson's 10-year tenure with Bread and Puppet included leading performance and puppet building workshops in cities and towns throughout the United States, Latin America, and Europe."
