Meet Steffani Jemison, our project coordinator for GO. We received more than 300 hundred applications for the GO project coordinator and neighborhood coordinator positions, and if you’ve ever been through the hiring process, you know that sometimes you find an applicant that just jumps out at you. For us, Steffani was that person. Steffani has the perfect combination of what we were looking for in a candidate. She’s an incredibly smart and talented artist with a strong commitment to community, but also an experienced arts administrator up to the challenge of coordinating such a large and complex project as GO (73 square miles to cover with 22 neighborhood coordinators; over 500 registered artists as of today; massive community outreach; and then, of course, there’s the internal workings of a large museum). She’s already handling it all with great initiative and enthusiasm. She lives in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and will soon be moving her studio to Bushwick, and we’re thrilled to have her on board! In her words…
I’ve lived in Prospect Lefferts Gardens for one year.
You’ll find me hanging out at Prospect Park.
I’ll never move from PLG because of the diverse community, tree-lined streets, and proximity to Prospect Park.
