In 2011, I began volunteering with the non-profit organization artsScene Montreal, a branch of the national organization Business for the Arts. artsScene Montreal’s mission is to promote young professionals’ involvement in the arts; to encourage philanthropy and participate in the artistic and economic vitality of Montreal. I was personally inspired to join the organization because of it’s refreshing perspective, bringing together artists who need patrons in order to make a living, and young professionals who are curious about contemporary art and want to encourage cultural initiatives in their community. It also conveniently combines my passion for enterprise and the arts.
I now serve on the Executive Committee, as Co-Director of Communications with Isabelle Demers. Together, we direct all communications and marketing activities: managing a busy team of volunteers, developing an annual communications strategy including web, social media, public relations and CRM efforts, as well as writing and translating regular content for our various platforms.
