Andrea "Angie" Chandler
Audience & Engagement Specialist
Andrea “Angie” Chandler is a speaker, and a cultural arts curator and strategist from Brooklyn, New York. In Brooklyn she received both her love of the arts as well as her B.A. in Education and History from CUNY-Brooklyn College. A first generation American, Angie draws inspiration from her Jamaican and Panamanian heritage to inspire her work and center global perspectives.
Her time in the classroom continues to fuel her work around socially engaged art, advocacy, social justice and women’s rights. Her passion for storytelling and community arts education led to her work as a teaching artist eventually curating and facilitating arts and civic programming. In her work as a museum administrator and curator Angie has crafted innovative programming strategies connecting exhibitions to current events, infusing technology into audience experiences, and introducing new voices to the art institutions. She takes great joy in creating opportunities for both artists and communities to engage with the arts in a meaningful way.
Angie previously worked as the Education Manager at the San Diego Museum of Art. In that role she oversaw a department that included a museum art school, adult and youth programming, the museum’s library and more. Her personal mission is to cultivate culture to effect change. Angie spends her time outside of BACC as an independent consultant and curator with a focus on innovative engagement, writing, and arts equity.
