Title: Former DTAA Graduate Assistant
Maya Curtis received her B.A. in Fashion Business with a minor as a Teaching Artist from Columbia College Chicago in 2013. In Chicago she worked as an assistant teaching artist for the Center of Community Arts and Partnerships. She was also a lead teacher for Move and Groove at East Bank Club. Maya returned to Cleveland in 2013 and worked as the Site Coordinator for the Artworks program for the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning formally known as Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio and as a childcare provider at Providence House. It is from her relationship with students and love of the arts that Maya decided to pursue a degree in arts administration. She hopes to one day work as a program coordinator with a non-profit arts organization working predominantly with integrating arts into school curriculum and providing as many adolescents as possible with the opportunity to experience and participate in the arts. Ultimately Maya would like to own a transitional venue space that allows local artist to have a place to exhibit and share their work. Maya is excited to be joining her peers as a Graduate Assistant for the Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration Office and looks forward to a successful season.
