Jessica Austgen | Working Breakfast Facilitator
This year, Statera Conference programming will include "working breakfasts" where attendees can choose to share a meal with a group of people interested in a focused conversation surrounding a certain topic. During this working breakfast, Jessica Austgen joins Allison Watrous to facilitate a discussion about the ins and outs of being a teaching artist.
Jessica has been a teaching artist at DCPA Education since 2007 and currently serves as Shakespeare Coordinator. In addition to traditional theater work, she has performed at every improv stage in Denver, most notable as a cast member of Cult Following in Off-Center at The Jones. Jessica is the president of the Group Mind Foundation, a non-profit group that produces the annual Denver Improv Festival. Jessica holds a BFA in Theatre Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder and recently earned a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Denver.
