Emily Parent

Community Media Manager

Emily Parent has been a media-maker, instructor, and advocate for media accessibility for over 5 years. She’s designed media education programs for community media centers throughout the nation.

Emily’s journey as an artist began at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where she studied creative writing and worked for years as a filmmaking equipment rental assistant. That’s where she first had access to media-making tools. Since then, she’s helped to produce an award-winning short film, developed multiple independent podcasting projects, and launched a series of graphic design-based zines.

Professionally, Emily joined our team as a podcasting instructor. It did not take long, however, for her to branch into the development of other media-making classes to serve our community. Now she works with our studio production team to develop, schedule, and ensure the successful execution of our community-based classes and events. She’s deeply grateful for the opportunity to work each day with the artists and activists of our community!
