Welcome new board members!
We’re pleased to welcome two new members to the WKRAC board.
Louise Ferguson is Executive Director of the Fernie & District Arts Council, more commonly known as The Arts Station. From England, she originally came to Canada for a year in 2011 to travel and work and has been here ever since. Outside her day job, she offers seamstress services in Fernie, teaches sewing and fibre classes, and loves to be involved in anything theatre-related. See her full profile here.
Fernanda Fernández is an art historian and Acting Administrator at the Kimberley Arts Council–Centre 64. Originally from Mexico City and educated partially in Paris, she moved to Kimberley in 2020. Her work has included curating content for museums and exhibitions on topics such as the environment, children’s development, sex work and gender, plus doing translation for institutions like the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Denver Art Museum, and creating subtitles for documentary films. (To see her full profile when it becomes available, sign up for our newsletter.)
We look forward to having their contributions—along with those of our established board members—help shape WKRAC into the future!
