I’m an arts administrator and fundraiser, I’m originally from Edmonton and now currently residing in Vancouver, Canada. Last year I completed my Masters in Arts Admin & Cultural Policy from Goldsmiths Uni of London. A few years ago I’ve co-founded “The Future is you and me”, a free community mentorship program for young women of colour in the arts. I’m passionate about the intersection of race/gender in the arts and social justice issues.
Over the past ten years, I’ve worked in music, literary arts, theatre, visual arts, and now a film festival. It’s been really fun and interesting working in this field but now I’m at a point where I question a lot of what we do, why, and how best to serve our community.
