Welcoming Laurie Macfee to BCNM

We're so excited to welcome Laurie Macfee to the Berkeley Center for New Media, where she will be serving as our Events Coordinator and Office Manager.

Laurie is a poet, artist, art administrator, and educator. She directed the Writing Program, as well as grants, at Vermont Studio Center; served as curator of education at the Nevada Museum of Art; directed UNR’s Sheppard Gallery; and co-founded a non-profit art apprenticeship program for at-risk youth. Her poems have appeared in Forklift, Ohio, Ninth Letter, Tupelo Quarterly, and Jet Fuel among others, and her photos for Project 929: Mapping the Solar with media artist Joseph DeLappe now reside in NMA’s permanent collection. She studied photography at University of South Florida's MFA program, and in 2015 received her MFA poetry from Sierra Nevada College. She’s happily landed in a little duplex in Oakland and is currently finishing her first poetry manuscript.

Laurie's regular BCNM hours will be 10am-4pm Mondays, and 9am-noon on Wednesdays/Thursdays. During event weeks, her schedule will follow event needs!

She will also assist with events/manage the office in the Arts Research Center. You'll find her there 12:30-4:30pm on Wednesdays/Thursdays, plus at all ARC events.

Please join us in welcoming her to the team!
