A longtime resident of Seattle, Guay helped found Open Satellite, a three-year experiment in bringing artists-in-residence to a high-rise tower on Seattle's Eastside. She also served as program manager at Grantmakers in the Arts, the national association of public and private funders making grants to artists and arts organizations, where she worked on initiatives addressing individual artist support, arts and social justice, and the overall health of the nonprofit arts sector. Most recently, Guay directed the Neighborhood House arts program on the historic Christ Church campus in Old City, Philadelphia. Working in conjunction with the Arts Program faculty, Guay will curate and coordinate the live event Performing Arts Series and the Learning to Listen classical music salon program.
