Gwendolyn Boniface (they/she) is an incorrigible multi-tasker. They recently finished a four and a half-year run as a member of the programming team at Mischief Management, a producer of content-rich, community-focused fan conventions like BroadwayCon and LeakyCon. Since 2018, they have traveled all over the United States, working with both fans and industry partners to curate and run panels, lectures, workshops, and performances for events with up to 18,000 attendees.
Simultaneously, Gwen is a freelance theatre artist and candidate for the CUNY School of Professional Studies Master of Arts in Applied Theatre (pending thesis completion). They spent five years as a professional teaching artist before accepting a full-time event management role, during which time they worked with pre-school and elementary students at sites across New York City. Their graduate studies have afforded them the opportunity to facilitate programs with high school youth and adults, as well as further develop their skills as a performer, devisor, and director. Their primary creative passions are in topics related to gender, sexuality, and bodily autonomy, and they look forward to creating more projects that center LGBTQ+ people.
Throughout their varied work, Gwen strives to create opportunities for community building, education, and collective liberation. They live in Brooklyn, NY with their ever-expanding collection of craft supplies.
