Sara Carminati (she/they) is a writer and communicator for the arts world newly based in Bulbancha (also known as New Orleans) who believes that brave and imaginative storytelling can advance justice, belonging, and joy.

Sara began her career with the Kenyon Review, an Ohio-based literary arts organization that champions and nurtures the work of emerging writers. Most recently, she worked as an editor at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she shaped and contributed to exhibition catalogs and didactics and served on the organizing team for the museum’s MASS Action (Museums as Sites for Social Action) group. She is committed to global ambassadorship and knowledge exchange and has previously taught at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on a Fulbright grant and held a variety of roles in scholarly publishing.
