Kavya Palepu is a Bay Area native and a proud San Francisco transplant. As CCC’s new Office Manager, she administers the company’s business operations, event management, and human resources. She has had a long-standing passion for communication through the arts—in particular, its applicability towards community building, civic discourse and advocacy. In her free time, she mostly struggles to overcome the analysis paralysis caused by her never-ending list of cool hobbies... until she inevitably winds up on TikTok.

He previously worked at the San Francisco Arts Commission, is active in grant panels and juries, and is a founding member of Related Tactics, a collective at the intersection of race and culture and (un)making, a podcast on Art Practical.
