Staff, board, committees, interns: people who make the Arts Council happen.
Katrina-Monica Zacarias (Kat) is the Administrative Assistant for the Arts Council. They support the staff part-time by assisting with behind-the-scenes organization such as database entry and managing emails and inquiries. They also act as the coordinator Arts Night Out!
Kat graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in media & information and fulfilled the university’s competitive interdisciplinary 2-year GameDev Cohort in May 2020. Over the course of their capstone, they acted as a 2D/UI artist and accessibility coordinator.
During their undergraduate career, they were also active in the Asian American community, taking part in several student boards and facilitating at regional workshops. A lot of their recent research explores arts, culture, and the diaspora.
After moving to Lansing for school, Kat fell in love with the city and all the different neighborhoods. Most importantly, they love all the unique, local shops Lansing has to offer.
They are passionate about art, games, and most importantly, about creating experiences/products that make others smile. When not at the Arts Council, they design stationary and stickers inspired by their two cats.
