SOPHIE BECKER

Communications & Creative Content Associate

Sophie Becker is the Communications & Creative Content Associate at Destiny Arts Center. She creates dance video and documentary-style content about Destiny’s programs, supports young people in learning the basics of visual storytelling, and manages a robust digital archive that preserves Destiny’s growing institutional memory. Having grown up in San Francisco and Marin County, Sophie has been with Destiny since 2016.

Sophie believes that visual storytelling uniquely captures the transformative power of the performing arts. She believes that learning digital media arts, like photography and video, give young people an opportunity to amplify their voices in this current cultural moment, and speak truth in their own creative language.

Sophie has worked for KPFA Pacifica Radio as a production assistant, assisted research efforts for exhibition design at the Exploratorium Museum, and has worked with youth in recovery at Thunder Road adolescent treatment center. Apart from her work at Destiny, Sophie maintains a performing arts practice and does freelance video art for performances and for gallery exhibitions.

Sophie is the Spring 2016 recipient of the CA$H, a grants program of Theatre Bay Area in partnership with Dancers’ Group. She holds a BA from Oberlin College.
