Eve Silberberg is the creator and founder of Congress On Demand — an innovative public digital space intentionally designed to strengthen this democracy. The project was conceived so that what is public can reach the public in a familiar and engaging way. Eve has extensive experience as an educator in the field of theatre-in-education. A student of Augusto Boal (Legislative Theatre, Theatre of the Oppressed) her expertise is linking the perpetual human capacity to learn with engaging and activating educational processes. She created Congress On Demand answering a self-imposed challenge to better educate and engage an accountable public in the actions of this democracy. Eve has worked as a teacher, director, and curriculum developer for programs throughout New York City serving populations at schools, shelters, rehab centers, senior centers and work settings — designing and applying alternative modes of participatory education. She received her B.S. degree in Theatre and Performance Studies from Northwestern University and her M.A. in Educational Theatre from NYU.
