AHCMC Welcomes Brittney Dubose

Hailing all the way from the great state of Texas Brittney Dubose, a marketing professional with a love for the performing arts, joined our staff as the Marketing and Communications Manager. We sat down with her to learn about her upbringing in the arts, her interest in working for AHCMC, and more.

AHCMC: So, tell us about yourself.

Brittney: I was born in Washington D.C. but raised in Dallas, and I am thrilled to be back in the DMV! I have a Master of Public Administration, with a focus in Nonprofit Management, from the University of North Texas, and a Bachelor of Science in Film, Television, and Digital Media from Texas Christian University. Prior to joining AHCMC, I served as the Special Projects Coordinator with the City of Dallas’ Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA). In this role, I worked to rebuild and expand OCA’s brand, create sustainable digital marketing strategies, and increase the visibility of the Dallas arts community. Independently of OCA, I freelance as a digital marketing contractor with artists and arts organizations – producing engaging video content, designing marketing collateral and developing social media marketing campaigns.

AHCMC: What led you to the arts field?

Brittney: I have been involved in the arts my entire life. I began dancing at the age of four and acting around the age of eight. Growing up, my parents owned a fine arts studio and so my childhood was filled with classes, rehearsals, and performances. I loved every bit of it! I believe I was fortunate to have been exposed to many different art forms, cultures, ideas, values, etc. from a young age. After college, I began my career in arts administration as a teaching artist and a programs specialist. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed seeing how the arts positively impacted the lives of my students, and I wanted the opportunity to share these stories with anyone and everyone. Thus, my career focus shifted from programmatic to communications.

AHCMC: Do you still perform?

Brittney: Yes, but more acting than dancing. I am very passionate about storytelling and am excited about what opportunities may come my way in the DMV.

AHCMC: What interested you to come work for AHCMC?

Brittney: Providing artists with resources that support and empower them to achieve their vision is very important to me as a marketer and an artist. AHCMC provides these kinds of innovative services, and this is my opportunity to work with an organization dedicated to implementing creative strategies that ensure the arts remain a vital part of their community.

AHCMC: What are you most looking forward to as the Marketing & Communications Manager?

Brittney: Two things: one, I’m looking forward to cultivating relationships with artists and organizations in Montgomery County. Two, advancing the mission of AHCMC by highlighting and sharing the amazing work of our arts and humanities sector.
