Julia Nickerson has been working in education and theater for the past nine years and is ecstatic to be part of New York City Children Theater’s team. She was drawn to the power of theater as a tool for social change while learning about Theatre of the Oppressed and Arts Literacy in college. Her dedication to this work grew while using these tools during her time teaching in Ecuador, Turkey, and Thailand. After witnessing the positive impact of theater in the classroom, she knew she had found her passion. Julia recently completed her Master’s in Applied Theatre at the CUNY School of Professional Studies and is working as a teaching artist for Lincoln Center Theater, the Creative Arts Team, and Girls Leadership. She is excited to continue working with young people in NYC!
Today, we are reaffirming our promise to serve all of New York City’s children. NYCCT will continue to promote diversity, teaching children that everyone’s story belongs on stage – and that their lives matter.
