D’Arts et de rêves is happy to welcome André Gélinas as our new Artistic Coordinator, who joined the team on August 1st. His responsibilities include welcoming artists in residence and offering support during their stay, organizing activities with the public, as well as coordinating the general artistic programming of the organisation.
Trained in Visual Arts, specializing in sculpture and video production, André has extensive experience as a social worker, where he offered support and services to youth and senior citizens alike. His background and experience make him the perfect fit for his position at D’Arts et de rêves whereby he will coordinate artistic activities, tend to the needs of visiting artists and ensure a dynamic relationship with the public and local community.
We wish to thank Natasha Evoy, our Administrative Coordinator as well as our President, Nicole Côté for holding down the fort in the months prior to André’s arrival, who are delighted to have a new colleague to help alleviate the workload.
