Rene Dongo, Radio Station Manager, joined ZUMIX in 2017. As a filmmaker, media maker and teaching artist, he has found the intersection of community and youth arts education to be a pivotal step to helping young people grow and find their voice in the communities where they live and learn. At ZUMIX, he works to support community and youth-produced radio programming.
Outside of ZUMIX, Rene has worked as a teaching artist for the Institute of Contemporary Art / Boston and The Urbano Project. His first teaching artist project focused on crafting radio pieces centered on spoken word poetry inspired by the community of Egleston Square. He is a graduate of Emerson College and continues creating work inspired by community perspectives and personal storytelling.
