Andrea MoorE

Executive Director, Co-host for “Everybody In” Podcast

Andrea Moore is a social artist, activist, educator, and entrepreneur. She began working with people who experience disabilities in 2002 as an adventure camp counselor at Adam’s Camp. Andrea discovered quickly that her own “special needs” were being fulfilled alongside the people she was hoping to serve, and her interest in the concept of mutual aid was sparked. In addition to serving as Executive Director for The Wayfaring Band, Andrea is a working artist using writing, performance, and photography to foster dialogue and connection across social and cultural lines. She is passionate about advocacy and responsible leadership, particularly in partnership with unprotected and disenfranchised communities, and she brings this experience to bear in all her pursuits. andrea@thewayfaringband.com

She has worked with people who experience disabilities in a multitude of areas including music, dance, recreation and animal-assisted therapy, residential support services, and inclusive theatre and dance programs.
