HOUSTON: Shayna Schlosberg, the managing director of the Catastrophic Theatre, will leave her post this spring to join the leadership team of Women of Color in the Arts (WOCA). Schlosberg, who oversaw Catastrophic’s recent equity, diversity, and inclusion initiative, will be the new director of operations at WOCA.
“It’s been an honor to work for Catastrophic,” Schlosberg said in a statement. “I am incredibly proud of the work the theatre accomplished during my tenure, and I’m grateful to have had had the opportunity to work with Catastrophic’s dedicated board and incomparable artistic leadership duo, Tamarie Cooper and Jason Nodler.”
At Catastrophic, Schlosberg spearheaded season ticketing and board development programs and collaborated with ENGAGE Houston, a professional arts development program, and New Pathways for the Arts Houston. She will remain with Catastrophic in a volunteer capacity, she said in a statement.
“We will miss Shayna terribly, but we are very glad that she will continue to work from Houston and exceedingly grateful that she will remain involved with Catastrophic as a volunteer and a member of our advisory board,” artistic directors Cooper and Nodler said. “We know that she will thrive at WOCA and that the broader arts community will be all the better for it.”
Founded in 2008, WOCA promotes professional opportunities for arts administrators to create racial and cultural equity in the field.
