Katie King is a multidisciplinary documentary artist and an educator.
She holds an MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts from Duke University and a BA in English from The University of Georgia. Before and beyond that, she holds an abiding fascination with stories. That fascination articulates itself as an impulse to create, experiment, and investigate. Often, her work focuses on themes of family, communication, and mental health and spans film, photography, audio, web, and text-based mediums.
Teaching and collaboration are integral to her practice. Katie has worked as an adjunct instructor for UNC-Chapel Hill’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media as well as Duke University’s Information + Science Studies and Arts of the Moving Image programs. In these positions, she has taught a variety of storytelling-based courses ranging from Contemporary Documentary Film to Web-Based Multimedia Communications to Digital Storytelling. In every course, in every class, she has learned tremendously from her students.
Her current research interests include how we navigate internal worlds, unpack intimate struggles, and talk to people—both others and ourselves.
Katie will be working with the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center.
