A Day in the Life of Curator Mimi Beck

Mimi Beck plays many roles in the dance community.  She is a curator, an executive director, a mentor, a colleague and more.  Mimi’s days are filled with meetings with artists, staff, Board members, partners, funders, and members of the CanDance Network. She participates in sector-wide conference calls, sits on committees and juries, and advocates for dance in many capacities. She spends considerable time writing and editing grant applications so that both DanceWorks and the CanDance Network can keep functioning. She also sees a lot dance, in Toronto and across the country. Then five times a year, all her hard work comes to fruition on the Mainstage.

Here are a few photos of Mimi at work:
