Rachel was a fellow in New York Live Arts' Hack-Art-Thon. Eight pairs of carefully selected and matched Fellows, an artist and an AI technologist, took part in a two-day HACK-ART-THON to work on prototype of art x technology projects that raise awareness or contribute to a concrete solution for Breaking The Stigma around Mental Illness
Under mentorship of Bill T. Jones, Rachel and her partner, Jared Katzman, were runner-ups in the competition for their theatre-AI project focusing on preventing LGBTQ+ suicide. They will continue the prototype in hopes of bringing the project to fruition.
Check out a video performance of a song from Rachel's new musical PRESS PAUSE, with music by Heidi Joosten.
