Kate Macdonald

Kate Macdonald was born and raised in Halifax, NS. Kate is proudly African Nova Scotian. She studied Performance Acting at Ryerson University in Toronto, ON. At the end of 2016 with the political climate swiftly changing around her (en election of a new president), she knew her reaction had to be radical. Out of this desire to make a change, she Founded and Created The Magic Project. Which focuses on bringing marginalized brilliance to the forefront of social media using the arts. Kate is also a Community Facilitator and Youth Programmer. She hopes to continue creating workshops, holding space for community discussions and empowering youth through celebration. Her art practice has always included photography, poetry and performance theatre. But she has been long fascinated with the many avenues that art presents for self-expression, especially around the themes of justice, healing, joy, magic and ancestral connection. Recently, Kate, Trayvone Clayton & DeRico Symonds created an African Nova Scotian community based, youth-led initiative called The Game Changers. After a year of working together in advocacy, activism, and community they decided to collaborate officially. Kate is currently the Branch Manager at the North Branch Memorial Library - a branch that has long been a staple in the African Nova Scotian community.
