Hi there. Welcome to wip projects.
My name is Frances. I’m an editor, arts educator, and community organizer currently based in Rosendale, New York. My work is about helping people build equitable, inclusive, and anti-oppressive spaces (both digitally and in-person) for creating, healing, and being. I have a graduate degree in English literature and for nearly ten years have been helping people learn how to use their voice proudly and without shame. In addition to that one-on-one consulting work, I also collaborate with arts-based organizations to celebrate creative expression and dismantle systems of institutional racism and patriarchy that exclude the voices of marginalized folks from the cultural conversation around art making. When I’m not working with others to shift how we define what it means to create valuable work in the world, I’m chatting with friends and family over coffee or spending weekends hiking in the nearby Catskills.
