Image for Guild Welcomes New Program and Communications Coordinator

May 14, 2015

We are pleased to announce that Drew Malmuth has joined the Guild as program and communications coordinator. Drew has diverse experience as a project leader in the nonprofit sector, a writer for a variety of music and arts publications, and an academic researcher examining artistic practice and community development.

As a member of the program team, Drew will support the Guild’s program and membership activities, providing writing, editing, outreach, and administrative expertise. In this new role, he will be responsible for strengthening and further developing the Guild’s existing communications and information resources (e.g., Member E-Bulletin, GuildNotes, Resource Center, and website) and implementing new strategies for information sharing and knowledge development. He also will spearhead the creation of a Guild blog—which will serve as a meeting ground for ideas, innovations, and provocations relevant to community arts education—and support activities of the local ambassadors and member networks.

As a participant in music education programs throughout his childhood, Drew has experienced firsthand the importance of high quality arts learning. He has brought this perspective to bear on a wide range of youth development, research, and communications projects. In 2011, after receiving his B.A. from McGill University, Drew accepted a position in South Korea as an English teacher. He subsequently moved to London, where he received his M.Sc in political sociology from the London School of Economics and worked as a program evaluator and project leader for Basti Ram Charity. Drew’s M.Sc research looked at the intersection of artistic practice and community development, with a focus on the ways in which the arts can impact marginalized communities. In November 2014, Drew traveled to Udaipur, India to lead Basti Ram’s Life Through the Lens participatory photography project. He worked as both lead coordinator for the photography-based youth workshops and manager of communications outreach. Since 2011, Drew has been a regular contributor to music and arts blogs, including Pretty Much Amazing and CultureBot. He currently lives in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
