Celine Gomes joined the Brookline Arts Center (BAC) team during the Fall of 2021 as the Marketing and Content Editor. Earlier that year, she graduated with honors from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with a dual degree in English Communications/Rhetoric and Women’s Gender Studies. Her courses allowed her to explore creative outlets like WordPress, Google Drive, Canva, and Adobe Photoshop. The education Celine received did not stop outside the classroom. Due to a pandemic that shall not be named, a chunk of her learning also took place within the comforts of her own home. It was there where Celine was able to immerse herself into the digital realm of social media. She learned how to optimize platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and Tik Tok. All the while trying to master the “perfect selfie”.
Celine’s drive to create stemmed from a well-rounded childhood provided by the West End House Boys and Girls Club in Brighton, MA. From ages 7-18, Celine engaged with music, dance, visual art, and theater. It was the arts that led Celine to find her voice. Through marketing, she has learned how to elevate her pitch. Since the arts have had such an impact on her identity, Celine has always wanted to give others the chance to find their own voice through creative expression. She is passionate about dismantling negative stigmas that are associated with a career in the arts. That is why she is beyond excited to work for the BAC. As a long-time Boston resident, Celine firmly stands behind BAC’s mission of inclusivity and accessibility for those even beyond the city of Brookline. Celine is humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to share the story of BAC and its mission with anyone who will listen.
Celine is writing short stories, reading self-care books, and editing pictures- when she isn’t tending to her one-too-many-plants, of course.
