Before moving to New Orleans to pursue a Masters degree in Art History at Tulane, Residency Coordinator Cammie Hill-Prewitt was the Program Manager of a non-profit organization in San Francisco working with emerging visual artists. Passionate about the arts, she has worked in non-profits for more than fifteen years. She started working at A Studio in the Woods in 2007 and enjoys finding new ways to bring the arts to the Greater New Orleans community and to students of all ages. A Studio in the Woods is committed to supporting artists engaging the public in critical dialogue about the environment and part of Cammie's job is to help source the materials, sites and individuals that they need to create a risk-taking new work during their residencies. She frequently looks to Tulane students and community volunteers to help produce the artists' work. In addition to facilitating programmatic activities such as Kids in the Woods summer camp and the annual FORESTival fundraiser, she acts as a grantwriter, bookkeeper and database manager for the organization.
