For the past two years I have been a member of the Board of Directors for the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery. This is a fantastic arts organization with a simply phenomenal permanent collection. They do innovative, critical work and engage diverse and interesting contemporary artists.
Last fall, I interviewed the gallery’s Senior Curator, Crystal Mowry, about some of the challenges that she faces when curating from a large, historic collection.
Last month, our conversation was featured on the KWAG Blog. Check it out here: https://kwag.ca/blog/art-galleries-offer-pleasure-education-history-and-cultural-change

I grew up near a little town in Alberta called Hay Lakes. I later moved to Edmonton for my BA, Toronto for my MA, and Vancouver for my PhD. I’ve moved around a lot since then, finally landing in Kitchener with my family over 5 years ago. I teach academic and technical communication, media studies, and cultural studies. I currently research critical cultural mapping, cultural scenes, and urban design. I also have a research background in Canadian popular culture, media, and humour. Outside of the university, I work in the areas of cultural policy, design thinking, and user experience design.
