Cooper Wright

Senior Advisor, User Experience and Creative, Board Member

Cooper Wright is an executive producer and creative consultant who fosters and inspires development of multimedia content and products for domestic and international markets. Cooper spent much of her career at Sesame Workshop. There, she extended the global presence of "Sesame Street", the groundbreaking children’s educational program. As vice president of International Creative at Sesame Workshop, Cooper revitalized the creative content on international Sesame Street adaptations across Latin America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Among her accomplishments are delivering a comprehensive digital strategy and content for "Plaza Sésamo" in Latin America, aligning websites, apps and games with television show content, and overseeing the first "Sesame Street" adaptations in Pakistan and Afghanistan–both of which promoted girls’ education and empowerment. Earlier in her career, Cooper built and led the teams that created the "Sesame Street" adaptation in South Africa ("Takalani Sesame") and the first Sesame Street series in China, Zhima Jie. "Takalani Sesame" was the first non-Eurocentric television series co-produced by South Africans for all South African children. In 2017, Cooper earned a master’s in Digital Media Design for Learning from New York University, from which she also holds a BA in Art History. She is delighted to bring these added skills in instructional design to her role as a senior advisor, strategy and creative, at Nardagani.
