About the Instructor

Catherine T. Morris is a social entrepreneur, visionary, and events producer who works at the intersection arts, culture and creative placekeeping. Over the last 15 years, Catherine has spent her time and energy producing shows, as well as mobilizing and engaging local audiences to experience the arts. Now, as the Founder and Executive Director of Boston Art & Music Soul (BAMS) Fest, Catherine has created an organization that strives to breakdown racial and social barriers to arts, music and culture for marginalized communities and artists of color across Greater Boston. As a result, BAMS Fest has presented over (160+) local and independent musicians and artists, curated in (15+) public spaces and has attracted over (8,000+) attendees.

Catherine has been a presenter, panelist and moderator with SPARK Boston, Podcast Garage, Berklee College of Music, Emerson College, Northeastern University, Simmons University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Fenway High School. She is a 2018 National Art Strategies Creative Community Fellow (The Barr Foundation), and has served on grant review panels for the Cambridge Arts Council, The Lewis Prize for Music, and the Boston Neighborhood Fellowship (The Boston Foundation).

Catherine is an alumnae of Temple University School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management in Philadelphia, PA, and received her Masters of Science from Simmons University (Boston, MA). It is Catherine’s hope that BAMS Fest becomes a pipeline to Boston’s arts and culture ecosystem and creative economy in a manner that inspires hope, changes individual and societal bias, and positively impacts the livelihoods of our future creatives and generations.
