Why you should listen

Cara Greene Epstein focuses on how we can use the arts to build a more just, representative and beautiful world together and is heavily influenced by her work as a mentor teaching artist with Steppenwolf and Looking Glass theatre companies in Chicago and Epic Theatre Ensemble in New York City. Her first feature film Dragonfly, which she wrote and co-directed, is currently available for streaming.

She also works as a creative process and facilitation consultant to help all sorts of organizations -- from theaters to Fortune 500 companies -- imagine new possibilities. You might also want to ask her about motherhood, Minnesota and how to portage a 75lbs canoe through the wilderness.

Epstein holds an honors degree in Theater Arts from Cornell University, an MFA in Acting from The Old Globe/USD and a second MFA in Television and Screenwriting. She is a proud member of SAG/AFTRA.
