About Rachel Engh

Name: Rachel Engh


Bio: This spring, I am one of Animating Democracy's Landscape Interns. As a Master of Urban and Regional Planning student at the University of Minnesota, I am concentrating in art-based community and economic development. Originally from Minneapolis, I majored in sociology at Grinnell College and then moved to Seattle to work in an HIV/AIDS service organization where I coordinated food delivery to homebound folks. I have experience volunteering with nonprofits and state-run art organizations in St. Paul, Seattle, and New York and am especially interested in site-specific work as it relates to community building.
