Disability Advisory Council Community Liaison
Claire (she/her) joined Mixed Blood as Community Liaison to the Disability Advisory Council (DAC) in February 2015. The DAC is a group committed to theatre for and about people with disabilities, and committed to making Mixed Blood the theatrical destination for people with disabilities in the Twin Cities. Claire organizes and leads meetings, helps reach out to the local disability community by sending invites to the Council’s Access Night (ASL interpreted and audio described performances), spreads the word about access services like free transportation, and identifies new and unique ways to engage the DAC community through theatre.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, Claire first worked for Mixed Blood as an intern during college. She worked on communications and outreach for the 2011 Center of the Margins festival, a collection of plays about people with disabilities. Since then, Claire has built a career in the arts, a field she has always loved.
