Long Bio

Ricky Reyes is a Seattle-based, Tacoma-born, researcher, creative, oral historian and Public Art Project Manager.

Trained in critical race theory and public policy at Seattle University and in oral history through Seattle's Black Spatial Histories Institute, Rick’s previous research, writing, art, and photography explore epistemologies to better understand assumptions on race, class, and gender that produce real-life sociopolitical impacts on people of color and those at the center of structural oppression and ways to use storytelling and creative expression to tell these stories.

Rick’s work experience includes community outreach and program management at and in partnership with arts organizations such as the Museum of Pop Culture, Seattle University, the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Tacoma Division of Community and Economic Development (Arts & Cultural Vitality), Napster Streaming (Rhapsody), Wa Na Wari and Seattle Theatre Group.
