leveraging artistry for social action
Outside of arts in the classroom and on the stage, one of Jordan's most impactful experiences was the time he spent working in the Obama White House. Coming from an artistic background and viewing the artist’s life as a conversation of ideals and cultures, Jordan approached his role as a chance to advance the cause of arts in our education system.
In all aspects of his work, Jordan hope to use his background in the arts to enhance his political influence. Adding the critical voice of the creative sector to circles of influence is vital for the field. From his service at the White House to finding the pulse of power structures on Capitol Hill, Jordan has been relatively successful in using the arts as an angle to reach the ears of influencers. In addition to his work on policy, he has also been involved with Americans for the Arts Action Fund, the Creative Coalition, and several Democratic campaigns for political office in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.
arts & cultural policy
Melding his experiences in domestic policy and the performing arts, Jordan has lent his experiences to the broader policy conversation around arts and culture, especially as it pertains to international dialogue. Jordan was recently selected to represent the United States at the Atlantic Dialogues Conference in Marrakech, Morocco. While representing the cultural sector of the United States, Jordan was also a voice for art and culture globally, constantly drawing on his creative endeavors as a way to help solve systemic global issues. It is Jordan's hope to continue leveraging his arts background to join important dialogues, inspiring leaders around the globe to turn to the creative arts and cultural practices as solutions to the problems we face in the 21st century.
