Director Biography: Grace Loescher has been a trusted member of the creative Waking the Village team for nearly two years and collaborated with Waking the Village's co-founders to bring the Creation District to life. In her role at Waking the Village, Grace serves as the Youth Development Director at Tubman House, a community for young parents and their children overcoming homelessness. In this position, Grace brings unbridled energy and a passion for the healing power of visual arts and dramatic performance. Grace believes that all young people should have “dreams the size of planets” and she has worked at Tubman House to bring these dreams to life. Her work includes leading a group of youth on their first trip out of the country to participate in a service project building homes for the homeless in Mexico, giving Tubman residents a platform to self-advocate by serving as a committee head on the Homeless Youth Task Force, and connecting Tubman’s graduates and residents to improvisation, spoken word, and dramatic performance to tell both their individual stories and the larger stories of the social injustices overcome in their journey. Prior to joining Waking the Village, Grace created an Art Therapy program at The Zebra Coalition in Orlando, Florida. Grace is a graduate of Rollins College in Florida with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Theatre Arts. As an artist, she has exhibited works of experiential art, sculpture, and installation. Grace profoundly believes that creativity is the most important element in discovering who you are, and that all young people should be given opportunities to grow and foster a healthy creative spirit.
