Azavea Welcomes Amelia Longo, Business Development Associate


Amelia studied Economics and German at La Salle University, where she continues to serve on the University Art Museum’s Advisory Council. Before joining Azavea, Amelia worked in arts administration and fundraising with various local nonprofits, including FringeArts, the Mural Arts Program, Painted Bride Art Center, and the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. You can still find her volunteer ushering around town most weekends. 

Outside of the office, she works with APIARY Magazine, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to cross-cultural understanding through the literary arts. Amelia also volunteers with Mighty Writers and Camp Sojourner.

Amelia is a writer, and has picked up a few good tricks from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Stories, the Greater Philadelphia Wordshop Studio, and the Rutgers Camden Summer Writing Conference. Her work has been performed as part of the First Person Arts Festival, and her dance writing has been published on Thinking Dance. She enjoys writing poems about whales and/or bicycles that appear to be metaphors, but are actually about whales and/or bicycles.
