Welcome to the team

Posted by:ArtsPond

Our team is growing! A hearty welcome to administration and communications interns Matt Learoyd and Vicki Hargreaves.

Vicki Hargreaves has spent a number of decades in Canada and in the world as a theatre maker, arts manager, educator and arts advocate. Returning to Canada, she is refreshing her work in the Canadian context as a candidate for Humber College's Arts Administration and Culture Management Program. Vicki has identified Artspond’s collaborative approach to creating space for artists, through housing, creation space and the re-organization of how artist’s connect as being at the core of next steps in advocacy.  Vicki is providing advocacy and outreach support for the collective impact effort, Groundstory.  You can reach Vicki at vicki@artspond.com

Matt Learoyd is a writer, musician and arts administrator living in Toronto. Originally from Alberta, Matt spent over a decade in community arts, immersed in Calgary’s thriving punk, indie rock and hardcore music scenes as a show organizer and performer. He’s currently focusing his efforts on community engagement, public relations and arts management in Toronto, and trying to reconcile his punk rock past with his current obsession with jazz. Matt is providing administration and communications support for Groundstory, Inflow, and the Digital Arts Services Symposium.  You can reach Matt at matt@artspond.com.
