Kaitlyn B. Jones is an interdisciplinary artist, administrator and burgeoning curator from the unceded territory of the KarankawaCoahuiltecan, and Sana peoples (Cypress, TX).


She believes that art is a conduit for healing, a seedbed for activism, and necessary fuel for the revolution against white supremacy. Her work facilitates conversations about intersectionality, social justice, and the complex Black-American experience.


In 2019, she graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. During her four years as a member of the resident company, Dance Repertory Theatre, she worked with many renowned choreographers including Ananya ChatterjeaCharles O. AndersonErica GionfriddoAndrea BeckhamJennifer FreemanGesel Mason, and Rennie Harris.​

In 2020, Jones expanded her artistic practice to include film, photography and performance art. Her newfound practices led her to create This is not for you (2021) and One day, you will die (2021), two interactive installations curated by Aisha Tida Abbassi for A Time For Action, an interdisciplinary micro-festival hosted by the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston, Texas.

In addition to her ongoing creative practice, she is a graduate student at the University of Houston, pursuing a Master of Arts in Arts Leadership with an additional certificate in Museum and Gallery Management.

Jones' dual passions for art and social justice fuel her advocacy for a world where accessibility is at the forefront of the arts sector. She actively engages in anti-racist practices and methodologies to create, curate and support art that diversifies community programming and is accessible to all communities regardless of race, age, gender, sexuality, ability or socio-economic status.
