See what Aubin has been up to!
Today and every day, we uplift the incredible women who make Aubin Pictures the kind of place where real magic happens. Simply put, we'd be nothing without the women who are juggling it all, always throwing on new hats, always adapting to new environments — as artists and caretakers, as deep thinkers unafraid of a mid-day dance break, as people capable of sparking change through their work, through gatherings, through an extension of their hand to another. The women of Aubin are change makers, and we are endlessly grateful to build this community with dedication, resilience, and brilliance as the foundation.

Heather has also researched and written about nightlife as a socially engaged art practice. Heather was the Executive Director of One Percent for Culture from 2011 to 2017 where she built cross-sector coalitions and spearheaded advocacy efforts that led to the first increase in NYC expense funding for culture in a decade. She served as the Director of Operations and Technology at 4A Arts where she oversaw development of a national web platform designed to showcase all disciplines of arts and culture. She founded both My Vote Will Count and Democracy for NYC which focus on increasing civic and political engagement.
