Big things are brewing at the Media Institute as we gear up for fall programming and continue to build out our space on N Mississippi. We're excited to welcome a new staff member aboard to keep things steady as we grow. Meet Emily Curtis! As a member of the 2017 Summer Documentary Program cohort, Emily displayed a real knack for storytelling. In addition to working on communications and event coordination for Citizen, she will be acting as the associate producer for The Non-Profit Hour.
Emily is a budding audio producer, Reed College graduate, and erstwhile religionist based in Portland since 2012. She worked previously as a production assistant on a documentary about Portland’s Hindu diaspora, and is now diving headfirst into hunting down stories for radio. She believes in the power of stories to inoculate us against indifference and sow the seeds for transformative direct action, and is excited to translate that ethic to her work at the Media Institute.
