Corbett Barklie

Corbett Barklie is committed to deep engagement with artists and artist collectives whom she believes are the backbone of the creative community. It is the brave new work undertaken at the grassroots level that informs the field, ultimately shapes the work of arts institutions, and expands the palate of the arts consumer. Corbett was the founding director of Loretta Theatre, the executive director of ARTS Inc., and an NEA assessor and consultant in the Challenge & Advancement Program. Since 2002, Corbett has been an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California, School of Dramatic Arts. She is a cultural journalist for KCET’s Artbound, where she writes a bi-weekly column, Arts Shrink. Corbett also produces theater with a focus on new work. www.corbettbarklie.com
