(Boston, MA) The New England Foundation for the Arts announced that Morganna Becker has joined the organization as the associate to support CreativeGround, NEFA’s free online directory of New England’s creative sector.

Prior to NEFA, Morganna held several roles that engaged the public in creative endeavors. Her extensive experience in the performing arts ranges from writing, directing, and producing to performance, stage management, and design. Morganna has worked with multiple dance and theater companies from Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Italy, and Massachusetts, where her own theater company, Pizza Box Manatee, is based. She has served as the business coordinator for Green Street Studios in Cambridge. She also served as a manager at several cafes, where she coordinated staff and catering departments. As a Master Artist for Paint Nite, she continues to instruct large painting and other arts and crafts projects, encouraging self-described “non-artists” to explore their creativity.

“Morganna’s experience in a variety of arts and business roles, combined with her customer service mindset, make her a perfect fit for NEFA as we continue to explore new ways CreativeGround can serve the creative sector in New England,” said Dee Schneidman, program director, research and creative economy.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Morganna holds a B.A. in Theater and Dance from Trinity College, and resides in Medford, MA.
