Dr. Meadow Jones received her PhD from the University of Illinois. Her dissertation “Archiving the Trauma Diaspora: Affective Artifacts in the Higher Education Arts Classroom” focused on the use of artistic and material practices in the redress of trauma. In combination with her experience as an AWA facilitator she has adapted her research and created trauma responsive curriculum and workshops. She is social practice artist, an award winning filmmaker and community organizer. Her work has been published in literary journals, peer reviewed scientific journals, poetry collections, books and chapbooks. She has facilitated arts and writing practices for diverse populations including undergraduates, artists, activists, teachers, teenagers, trauma survivors, prisoners, physicians and friends. In addition to offering workshops Meadow provides one on one creative consulting and trauma and recovery coaching. In other parts of her life Meadow is a dharma student at the Ann Arbor Zen Buddhist Temple, a facilitator at the Gesundheit Institute and the School for Designing a Society, a collaborator with The Prop Theatre, and on the board of directors of the Amherst Writers and Artists.
