Plenary Speaker - Online and In-Person Event
Alysia Lee’s roles as an artist, arts educator, strategic consultant, and 2019-2020 Kennedy Center Citizen Artist give her a broad perspective of the arts ecosystem. Her work has received national recognition for advancing access, equity, and justice between artists, organizations, and communities. She is the founder and artistic director of Sister Cities Girlchoir, an El Sistema-inspired, girl empowerment, choral academy with programming in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. Alysia is the education program supervisor for the Fine Arts Office of the Maryland State Department of Education where she advances her vision of statewide equity and excellence across five arts disciplines: music, dance, visual arts, theatre, and media arts.
