Diana Falchuk

Diana Falchuk is a Seattle-based artist, consultant, strategist, and organizer with nearly two decades’ experience designing public and social arts projects, trainings, and policies that advance racial equity and social justice. She works as an independent consultant and artist, and as Manager of Arts & Racial Equity at the City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative, a position with the Office of Arts & Culture and Office for Civil Rights. Since 2003, she has designed and run arts-based alternatives to youth incarceration, including King County’s Creative Justice, which received a 2016 Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review Award. Her artistic practice, like all of her work, honors the alchemic power of relationships—from meditative installations that organize her collection of loved, urban detritus to social projects that organize people to action for racial justice through performance, ritual, dialogue, and object creation. She approaches all of her work from her multiple positions as a white, Jewish, female artist and mother with Venezuelan cultural heritage.
