Artist/Curator Bio

Nancy Dickeman is a co-founder and literary curator for Particles on the Wall and a peace and nuclear disarmament activist. Nancy's poems and essays have appeared in Poetry Northwest, The Seattle Review, The Seattle PI, OCEAN Magazine, Common Dreams and other publications. She received a Commendation Award from the National Poetry Competition and was a co-winner of River City's Hohenberg Award. She received first place in the Hanford Haiku Challenge by Hanford Challenge. Nancy received her MA in Creative Writing at the University of Washington where she won an Academy of American Poets Award. Her poetry manuscript is titled In the Lightning's Blue Arc. She has recently completed her first novel manuscript, Green Run, White Train, set in her hometown of Richland, Washington.

Nancy and her sister, Dianne Dickeman, co-created the installation, The Use of All Necessary Means, which was exhibited at the 911 Media Arts Center in Seattle. The installation combined visual images, text and found objects in exploring the first Gulf War and the use of force as a means to an end. For her work in environmental health with Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, Nancy received The Toxics Prevention Leadership Award from the Washington Toxics Coalition. She serves on the planning committee for From Hiroshima to Hope, and on the Board of the Abe Keller Peace Education Fund.

Nancy grew up in Richland where her father was a nuclear physicist at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. She and her family lived in a government-built alphabet 'K' house, spent summer afternoons swimming in the lagoon, and many evenings playing on the banks of the Columbia River. She now lives in Seattle.
