Beth Warshaw has been working with arts, cultural and social impact organizations for 15 years, where her role has always centered around saying yes to people's ideas, then working collaboratively to make them possible. A Philadelphia native, she recently returned from Seattle, where she was Co-Director at The Vera Project, the largest all-ages music and art space in the United States.
Before moving to Seattle, Beth produced the daily NPR music program The World Café, and was the Production Director at WXPN, the noncommercial radio station in Philadelphia, where she produced & engineered live & recorded programming for over eight years. While at WXPN, she taught creative writing classes at the University of Pennsylvania.
Beth founded & grew Girls Rock Philly, an organization that creates liberatory pathways for girls and women through music creation, for six years. She has also served as board member of the international Girls Rock Camp Alliance. Most recently, she was a Media Movement Fellow at Media Mobilizing Project, filming a documentary about community schools in Philadelphia.
Beth graduated with a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and received her teaching certification in Secondary Education, also from Penn.
She is a sporadic Instagrammer, someone who goes running almost as often as she talks about going for a run, and a novice drummer in search of a surf band.
