Read about Rebecca, Rachel, and Krystal

We’re so excited to work with you this week!

Rebecca Crawford Muñoz (she/her) is a Workshop Leader at the Center for Artistic Activism. She is a writer, storyteller and facilitator who thrives most in the in-between spaces.

Born with an insatiable curiosity and trained in public health, she’s worked around the world to flip power structures that hold communities back from social change, including at the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), UNESCO, the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Profamilia, Global Health Strategies and a practicum at the Studio Museum in Harlem.

Rebecca bridges art and social justice advocacy as a flint to spark the creativity necessary to achieve the world(s) we’ve only yet dreamt of. Her current obsessions include shining a spotlight on the depth and breadth of Black and Boricua experiences and artistic expression and collaborating with civil society actors working to navigate intractable institutions on the path to success. ¡Vamos pa’lante!

Rachel Gita Karp (she/her) is the Program Director of Unstoppable Voters at the Center for Artistic Activism. Through Unstoppable Voters, Rachel supports bold, strategic, and ambitious organizations, people, and projects that protect the freedom to vote with creativity and innovation. She’s helped over 80 pro-voter groups and over 1,000 artists and activists via training, community-building, mentorship, and more.

This work builds off of and feeds Rachel’s decade-plus background making activist performances for voting and voters, reproductive freedom, and increased gender representation in politics. Rachel has developed and directed new performances about these topics and more across the country, through theaters and organizations including The Drama League, Clubbed Thumb, Irondale, Mabou Mines, Ars Nova, Brooklyn Arts Council, the Center for Artistic Activism, the Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics, Actors Theatre of Louisville, LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, The Wild Project, The Brick, The Flea, IRT, Dixon Place, Philly Fringe, PlayPenn, Incubator Arts Project, Women Center Stage, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Barn Arts, Monson Arts, Orchard Project, the Powerhouse and Samuel French Festivals, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s Process Series, Chatham University, Columbia University’s graduate and undergraduate schools, and Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Drama.

Krystal Barrett (she/her) is the Programs Coordinator at the Center for Artistic Activism. She is a bi-racial artist and activist from Orlando, Florida.

With a decade-long background in higher education, Krystal began her career in social change with the Peace and Justice Institute at Valencia College. At the Institute, she worked directly with national and international authors, scholars, and social justice leaders to further the Institute’s programming and mission. Throughout her time with Valencia, Krystal was deeply engaged in making the College more equitable and inclusive for both students and employees of all backgrounds.

A member of the League of Women Voters of Orange County since 2013, Krystal is passionate about community engagement, mental health advocacy, and educating on the importance of voting.

Krystal launched Peace Petals, her pressed flower art and goods business in 2016. Through Peace Petals, she has organized donation-based art giveaways supporting non-profits, including The Loveland Foundation and the Mental Health Association of Central Florida.

A first generation college student, Krystal earned her Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Central Florida. Her degree focused on Humanities, the Behavioral and Social Sciences, and Leadership Studies.
