— Joshua Heim, City of Bellevue Arts Programs
I was extremely impressed by your ability to understand the scope and intricacy of the work that we do at Tacoma Arts Live and to contextualize that work for us. In my opinion, you made the points that needed to be made while still being sensitive to the staff, and you’ve given us some very concrete and achievable action items and recommendations that we can begin to tackle.
— Mark Pinto, Board President, Tacoma Arts Live
You can be certain of smart, sure-footed and clear analysis from KO Projects – with deeply considered and innovative recommendations. Katie’s expertise in cultural projects across the country is charged with active imagination, appreciation for the broader context, and an agile and adaptive intellect – with the extra benefit of a healthy sense of humor.
