I am an artist/creative interventionist, curator and arts educator. In my professional life as an artist I am interested in using art and creative experiences to facilitate meaning making and relationships, inspiring marginalized people and communities to imagine beyond their own surroundings.
Most recently I worked as the Gallery Coordinator and Curator for The Gallery at W83 Ministry Center (part of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, NYC). Currently I am looking for new opportunities in related fields including arts administration and programming, arts and museum education.
Christina Young builds creative interventions to interact with the people and environments that surround us in new and unconventional ways. In doing so participants will find themselves building relationships, breaking down barriers and fostering creativity and empathy. These encounters encourage deep self reflection, challenge assumptions and seek to be meaning-making and healing experiences. This outward facing side of Young’s practice is informed by a inward facing contemplative creative life through which the Artist processes through her own reality.
