Makeba Dixon-Hill’s professional service centers the ways gatekeepers define
community support and how they advocate for themselves. Prior to arriving at the

Director, she held positions at museums throughout the nation. Her work brings the
vision and mission of the institution to life by curating programming and engagement
experiences that scaffold the institution’s world-class exhibitions and special projects.
Makeba conducts workforce development research within the arts sector and has served
on several advisory boards and review committees while lecturing in formal and
non-traditional academic and healing spaces.
She is also a voice over artist, yoga instructor, and writer working on her second book.
