Kate Jopson left the small town of Etna behind to pursue a career as a theater producer.
Now she plans to combine her career and the community that produced her.
National Arts Strategies named Kate a Creative Community Fellow, charged with using creativity to approach community issues.
So Kate plans a production of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard" back in Etna, to address the ongoing water struggles in Siskiyou County.
She joins us to talk about the work ahead.
