E. San San Wong directs Barr’s Arts & Creativity portfolio. She currently serves on the Steering Committee for the City of Boston’s cultural planning process and on the board of Grantmakers in the Arts, a national leadership and service organization that supports the growth of arts and culture.
Prior to joining Barr in 2012, San San served as director of grants at the San Francisco Arts Commission, executive director of the National Performance Network, director of development and special initiatives at Theatre Artaud, and as a performing arts producer and presenter. As an international arts consultant, her clients included the Ford Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Res Artis, among many others.
San San earned a master’s degree in community psychology from New York University and a bachelor’s degree in clinical psychology from Smith College. Her life feels incomplete if she averages fewer than five cultural events a week.
