about nora

I’m an interdisciplinary artist, educator, sound explorer, mushroom lover, and compost enthusiast. I’m passionate about earth care, animal welfare, racial justice, and community building.

I graduated from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam, where I taught movement research and composition for many years. While living in Europe, I also facilitated seminars at the Amsterdam summer academy of the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Besides teaching in the academic context, I have guided many community projects for kids, teenagers, as well as adults.

In recent years, my interest has shifted toward environmental and food justice, urban community farming, and mycology. As a student at Farm School NYC, I had the opportunity to immerse myself in community-based activism, working toward food sovereignty and upending racism in the food system. In my own artistic process, I explore the intersection of embodiment, visual arts, sound, and perceptual shifts in collaboration with fungi, plants, and earth cycles.

I teach Sustainable Systems at Parsons the New School for Design in NYC.
