Conversation with Bonnie Siegler following the lecture

Cleo Barnett is a curator, producer, and experience designer born in New Zealand and based in the United States. Her practice explores the relationship between space creation, engagement in the arts, and community liberation grounded in sustainability. Currently, Cleo works as the Deputy Director of Amplifier, a non-profit organization which builds visual media experiments in collaboration with contemporary artists, educators and community engagement, to amplify the voices of social movements. Cleo co-produced and co-curated multiple global public art campaigns including the iconic We The People Campaign, Women’s March on Washington, and March For Our Lives. The result was millions of iconic posters distributed and downloaded across the country, and building the non-profit into a globally recognized art and social justice organization.
