Staff • Residency Programs Coordinator

As a Residency Programs Coordinator at Urban Gateways, Mallory partners collaboratively with Chicago-based artists and teachers to create engaging and innovative arts programming for all audiences. Mallory is a third-generation Chicagoan and is a proud CPS graduate (shoutout to Robert Healy Elementary School and Walter Payton College Prep). She is also a proud Marwen alum, where she discovered her love for arts education, photography, and producing audio narratives. Mallory received her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology/Sociology with a minor in Art History from Denison University. Mallory has previously worked with INTUIT: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, StoryCorps Chicago, The Chicago Park District, and The Old Town School of Folk Music. On any given day, you can find Mallory admiring street art throughout the city, working on her next audio narrative project, or figuring out what her next snack is going to be.
