Since receiving her BFA from the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, Katie Macyshyn has taught art and empowered self expression through workshops, creative group activities, and high camp multimedia rituals. From a place of radical empathy, radical inclusiveness, and radical self love, the work helps overcome familial or societal guilt and shame in order to live a life of empowered self-expression and integration as simultaneously sexual, spiritual, and social beings. She has been included in DIY events and gallery exhibitions in the DMV including group shows at VisArts, IA&A at Hillyer, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She has also participated in several performance festivals including ITINERANT, PGH PAF, Transmodern Festival, and (e)merge Art Fair. She is from Toms River, NJ.
