Welcome listeners to 5 Questions: A Critical Mass for the Visual Arts Podcast in which we ask 5 questions of our interviewees aimed at positioning and contextualizing their respective bodies of work within the St. Louis artworld. This episode we’re talking with Roseann Weiss.
Roseann has over 30 years of experience in arts leadership in nonprofit arts institutions, community organizations, and gallery settings. Her expertise centers in arts-based community development, community and public arts, artists’ professional development, and grant-making.
For 14 years, she guided the nationally-recognized Community Arts Training (CAT) Institute at the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission. The CAT Institute is an innovative, cross-sector program for artists and community activists designed around art as a powerful agent for social change with a network of 400 alumni. Among her current projects are Lead Educator for Arts as Civic Engagement at the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement at Washington University and working with Americans for the Arts to create guides, webinars, and workshops around the country for “Artists at the Community Development Table.”
5 Questions is a program by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts – a nonprofit, self-formed visual arts collaborative dedicated to promoting, enhancing and initiating contemporary visual art in the St. Louis region.
