Jen Berger

Jen Berger works as an interdisciplinary, community, and socially engaged artist and educator. Jen uses street, stage and guerilla theater, visual arts, painting, printmaking, puppetry, video for education, and dialogue to raise awareness and intervene in social issues that affect us all.

Jen works as a teaching artist, working with students, who are in early childhood through adult-aged students, and hosts creative and educational workshops throughout the community to engage in dialogue and action. 

Along with individually designed projects, Jen is creating community engagement opportunities through her new project ‘At the Root'. She is currently adjunct faculty at the Community College of Vermont and Champlain College.
