Hello! Bonjour! My name is Eleanor Callott Whitney and I am a writer, educator, arts programmer and manager, and musician raised in Maine and living in Brooklyn, New York with a Bachelors Degree in Cultural Studies and a Masters in Public Administration. I’m the author of Grow: How to take your do it yourself project and passion to the next level and quit your job! which will be released June 1, 2013 by Cantankerous Titles. By day I’m an arts administrator concentrating on helping artists think of themselves as entrepreneurs and in making projects happen smoothly and successfully, no matter what their discipline and scope. By night I play guitar and sing in the cinematic shoegaze band Corita and have written about art, culture and nonprofit management for publications and websites such as Venus Zine, Bitch Magazine, ArtsFwd, and Remedy Quarterly. For ten years I published the personal zine Indulgence and was deeply involved in zine culture. This blog is about all the interests in my life: writing, music, food, fashion, learning French, traveling, friends, literature, riding my bike and participating in New York City life. Occasionally I’ll write about economics or arts policy, but I try to keep things fun around here. You can also find me in these places:
