Share this post

Today, I’m happy to announce the appointment of Marisa Mazria Katz as our newest Kickstarter Fellow. 

Marisa is a New York-based writer who has covered culture and politics in cities that include Casablanca, Kabul, Port-au-Prince, and Istanbul. Her work has been featured in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Review of Books, Time, Vogue, and The New York Times. In addition to her writing, she ran a U.S. State Department-sponsored program in Casablanca, Morocco, that taught journalism and blogging to youth who have been marginalized.

Marisa was also the founding editor of Creative Time Reports, a website from the public art nonprofit Creative Time, which co-published artists’ work with The Guardian, Al Jazeera America, Foreign Policy, The New Yorker, The Intercept, and many more. Currently, she is the Editorial Producer at Eyebeam, a nonprofit organization that provides residencies focusing on artistic invention in technology and society. 

As a Kickstarter Fellow, Marisa will be working closely with myself, our Editorial team, and The Creative Independent, helping us to think through our metrics for assessment, our long-term goals, and new strategies for collaborating with outside outlets. I’m very much looking forward to engaging with her expertise — and I'm excited about the potential for great things to come. 

Welcome, Marisa!

      It is like home coming for a student or someone. Marisa is really talented and hardworking person. Much deserved title she has got.
      Following something or someone may lead you to the correct path. If you are a student then create any aspiration and have an idol who is your inspiration for the things you will do in future.
