The Arts Firm
I wish to strengthen the arts and culture sector in Canada and ensure its relevancy in today's world. I come to the table with experience in marketing, communications, outreach, and operations (project management) from some of Canada's top groups, including Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Soundstreams, and the JUNO Awards.
Over the past two years, I have consulted with the following groups. Toronto Bach Festival (Marketing Strategist), Orchestras Canada partnership (promotions for online courses), monstrARTity (project lead and marketing expert), Thirteen Strings Orchestra (marketing and project lead), Screen Composers Guild of Canada (promotions for Musiccreator.ca), Canadian Art Song Project (project lead, manager), Confluence Concerts (marketing strategy).
