Lisa Martin

EAP Interim Project Manager (2018), Arts Administrator, Artist, Writer

I’m a nonprofit arts administrator, artist, and writer with a passion for organizational processes, experimental archives, and the production and display of site-specific art in cultural heritage sites. In all my work, I aim to be a respectful listener and communicator and to facilitate an environment of consensus, collaboration, and co-leadership.
I have more than 15 years of experience in administration, primarily in the Bay Area, and most recently at Southern Exposure, where as Communications & Outreach Director I set and implemented strategies around marketing and engagement in close collaboration with my counterparts in the program, education, and development departments.
I received my BA from Bryn Mawr College and my MA in Curatorial Studies from Stockholm University, and was a 2017-2018 Fellow with Emerging Arts Professionals – San Francisco Bay Area.
