About our Education and Outreach Manager
Katrina Cartwright is the Education and Outreach Manager at the NAGB. Originally from Long Island, Bahamas, she is a ceramist and arts administrator who lives and works in Nassau. Katrina attended the College of The Bahamas in 1999 and later obtained a BFA in Ceramics from Maine College of Art. She is currently pursuing an MA in Arts Administration at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland.
An educator and arts advocate, Katrina has assisted with various fundraising and community initiatives. It is her belief that education plays a vital role in the continued growth and relevance of arts institutions. She has, until recently, been affiliated with Popopstudios ICVA as both a studio artist and Education Officer, and is an adjunct instructor in the Art Department at the University of The Bahamas. Katrina has also apprenticed with local and international professional ceramists and her work can be found in several collections in The Bahamas and the United States.
Prior to joining the NAGB team, Katrina worked as the Membership Officer at the Bahamas National Trust, an experience that has cultivated a greater appreciation for the importance of conservation and preservation to The Bahamas. She is a partner in the start-up nonprofit, Exnihilo Art Center, which seeks to create sustainable opportunities for, and collaborations between, artists and existing art spaces and institutes, both locally and abroad.
