Katy Walker Mejia is mother of two young girls, artist/activist, educator, musician and filmmaker. In 2002 she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Video & Photographic Arts with a Minor in Music from the University of Texas at Austin. After moving to New York City to follow her passion for music and film, she found work as a DJ and produced high vibe events over a 5 year period with various collaborators. She eventually found work as an Art Director for a wide range of clients such as Carol’s Daughter (natural beauty products), HBO and Live Nation. While living in Brooklyn, she forged lasting connections with unique musicians, teaching artists and filmmakers, merging her passion for music and film with her husband, Joél Mejia, and eventually joining Things Are Changing Prod., LLC. Recently she launched a media cooperative with co-founder, Betty Bastidas, located in the Hudson Valley.
Because she has always seen herself as a multidisciplinary artist, it was a natural step to bring like minds together to create the genre-defying music collective, Dream Circle, which furthers her development in songwriting, storytelling and filmmaking. Her first feature documentary film, Time is Art: Synchronicity & the Collective Dream was independently released and screened worldwide in 2015 and is available on Amazon Prime and the Gaia platform. The film was an official selection at The 2015 Chicago Blow-up International Arthouse Film Festival. She is currently working on two releases, primarily the second documentary in the Time is Art series: The Frequency of Love and a third Dream Circle album inspired by the film.
