Hi, I’m C. Meranda. I’m a theater artist and urban planner. I work with people to understand complex systems, re-orient ourselves to places, participate in group decision-making, and connect through story. 

As a theater artist, I explore these questions: Who are we? What do we stand for? How do we want to be remembered?

    As an urban planner, I work between the public health, community development, and arts and culture sectors. 

    In my work across disciplines, I use popular education strategies to help people understand the way our communities are shaped and resourced. We learn about the past to dream liberatory futures, and create community-directed solutions to health issues.
