Her 12 years of arts management experience in marketing, development, communications, and programming includes serving as General Manager of Bella Voce, one of the country's premiere professional chamber choirs, and as Executive Director of CUBE, a new music ensemble based in Chicago. Strokosch has lectured widely -- including at Columbia College Chicago, Brown University, Roger Williams University, Maine College of Art, and Rhode Island School of Design -- on a range of topics, from grantwriting to contemporary music to intersections of art and architecture. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in music performance from Columbia College Chicago and a Master's in musicology from Roosevelt University, where her research focused on music as a tool for building communities of resistance and social dissent.
The Alliance of Artists Communities is the national association of artists' residency programs, representing a field of more than 400 organizations in the US. As an advocate, funder, and service provider, the Alliance supports organizations dedicated to providing artists of all disciplines with time and space to create new work, and connects artists with resources and information on opportunities to develop their creative practice. Believing that the cultivation of new art and ideas is essential to human progress, the Alliance's mission is to advocate for and support artists' communities, to advance the endeavors of artists.
