COURTNEY STEEVES | COMMUNITY MANAGER
Courtney has been involved with Charlotte Street Arts Centre since October of 2015, and starting off in a Haunted Tour month really set the stage for the fast-paced and fun-loving environment that is enjoyed in the CSAC office. Having just grown up around the corner from the centre, Courtney feels at home with the community and loves the chance to further the cultural and artistic growth of the neighbourhood. She is looking forward to moving into the Executive Director’s role in the fall, and is even more excited that Jared will be taking over a studio space to continue, and increase, the programming offered at the centre. Charlotte Street Arts Centre is on a path of making huge impact on the community arts, and Courtney couldn’t be happier to be part of it.
