Rachel Wohlander is a co-founder, and the executive director of culture and education at Terra Cultura. She is an interdisciplinary artist and educator with a background in performing arts and creative writing. Her writing and performance focuses on art for social change, and her work has been performed at marches, rallies, protests, and high-profile political events. Rachel combines her expertise in arts education, and facilitating multidisciplinary collaboration, with her passion for nurturing plant, animal, and human communities. An accomplished theater director, writer, producer, and curator, Rachel has cultivated a wide network of creative collaborators. She has worked at regional and off-Broadway theaters, managed the Manhattan painting studio of prominent artists, produced a thriving bi-coastal literary and art salon, and developed arts curricula for children and adults. Her interest in farming comes from urban gardening, and volunteering on farms in the United Kingdom, South America, and the United States. When she is not writing or farming, she is playing with ink and watercolor, learning to play old-time tunes on the fiddle, or exploring new places with her dog, Selene. Rachel received her M.F.A. in Performance and Interactive Media Art from Brooklyn College, and her certificate in Permaculture Design from the San Diego Sustainable Living Institute.
