Lauren Jost, Teaching Artist


In this interview with theatre artist, Lauren Jost, she talks about how she began her teaching artist career at the Seattle Children’s Theater after college. Her work with children inspired her to explore how arts education could benefit members outside of the K-12 population, and she was asked by a colleague to co-teach a Creative Aging course. Lauren also talks about the differences and similarities with working with the K-12 and older adult populations, her most memorable moments in her career, and more.
