Kate MacDonald  - Selection Committee, Guest Knowledge Keeper and Facilitator


Kate MacDonald was born and raised in Halifax, NS. Kate is proudly African Nova Scotian. She studied Performance Acting at the Toronto Metropolitan University. At the end of 2016 with the political climate swiftly changing around her (an election of a new president) she knew her reaction had to be radical. Out of this desire to make a change she Founded and Co Created The Magic Project. Which focuses on bringing marginalized brilliance to the forefront of social media using the arts. 

Kate is also a Community Facilitator and Youth Programmer. She hopes to continue creating workshops, holding space for community discussions and empowering youth through celebration. Recently, Kate, Trayvone Clayton & DeRico Symonds created an African Nova Scotian community based, youth-led initiative called The Game Changers. After a year of working together in advocacy, activism, and community they decided to collaborate officially. Kate currently works at The Youth Project as a Project Manager.
