About Megan Hattie

I am a documentary artist and educator based between Oregon and New York City. I use audio and new media to produce place-based experiences and documentaries, often investigating musical histories, realities and possibilities. My interdisciplinary work draws from the fields of social practice, archival research, psychogeography, music theory and memory activism. I will receive my MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College during the Spring 2024 semester.

I was a 2022-23 Social Practice CUNY Actionist Fellow, a Mellon Foundation-funded initiative for socially-engaged artists. During the summer of 2023, I developed and led Bronx Audio Tour, a summer work-based learning internship for high school youth with a triple focus on place, audio production and community engagement. I have taught in the Film and Media department at Hunter College CUNY. My practice is informed by my past lives as a DIY filmmaker, French immersion preschool teacher, community radio host and standup comedian. In my twenties, I spent three years living in Paris, France, and speak French fluently.

My projects are often produced in collaboration with communities around me and presented outside of traditional venues of audience experience. I love to create asynchronous listening experiences for people to develop subconscious associations between the places we go and what we’ve heard there. Essential to my practice is not only the production of works, but assuring accessible opportunities for the public to experience them through release events and guided walks.
