Tracie McCambridge has 15 years of experience in program development and education within contemporary art orgs and higher education.
In 2013 she launched the Wex’s Art & Resilience program suite, exploring how art gallery and performance spaces can function as laboratories to critically consider and promote wellness, radical access, and inclusion. Working in deep collaboration with health, social service, and legal systems, she specializes in serving families living with chronic effects of brain trauma, military veterans, and women who experience the traumas of street life, human trafficking, and the criminal justice system.
From 2019-2021, Tracie also held the role of Director of Humanism in Medicine at The Ohio State University’s College of Medicine until returning to the Wex full time in December of 2021. She is now developing an emergent Art & Resilience department, envisioned within an ecological model of community care.
She received her master’s degree in Museum Education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
