Kamloops Arts Council looking for new executive director

The Kamloops Arts Council has started the hunt for a new executive director.

Terri Hadwin took on the role at the local arts organization in 2019, but has now decided to move on to other opportunities.

Hadwin will leave her post in two weeks to take on a role at the Thompson Nicola Regional District as a grants and research assistant.

"The KAC has a tremendous team in place that works tirelessly to make the arts as accessible as possible for our community," Hadwin said in a letter announcing her departure to KAC members and the community.

"I am filled with joyful anticipation in my next career placement with the Thompson Nicola Regional District, but I am melancholy in leaving my position with the Kamloops Arts Council," she wrote.

The non-profit organization was founded in 1968 and supports artists in the Kamloops area. Part of its mandate is to take arts out into the community by offering no-cost arts programs, performances, workshops and events.

The position has been posted on the KAC's job board, online at kamloopsarts.ca/whats-on/job-board.

The position closes on May 25.
