Autumn Garrison, Director of Education and Community Engagement
Autumn Garrison is the Director of Education and Community Engagement at AT&T Performing Arts Center. With more than a decade of experience in nonprofit arts education, Autumn passionately believes that everyone should have access to the transformative power of the arts. She discovered her love for arts education during her time as a museum educator at Dallas Contemporary. After four years of working as an instructor for the museum’s Art Think outreach program, she was appointed as the Paula and Jim Crown Director of Learning. From 2012 to 2016, she developed youth programs, organized artist lectures, and collaborated on special projects with educational institutions and nonprofit organizations throughout Dallas. In 2016, she jumped at the opportunity to return to her performance roots and joined the Center’s staff as the Senior Manager of Education and Community Engagement. Autumn has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art and Performance from the University of Texas at Dallas and is affiliated with the National Art Education Association, the Informal Educators of Dallas County and the Arts Council at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. In her free time, she enjoys distance running, museum visits and trips to the theatre and ballet.
