A non-profit organization that supports over 100 local festivals and events has a new executive director.
Carole Anne Piccinin will take over the role of executive director of Ottawa Festivals on Wednesday.
Ms. Piccinin was previously vice-chair of the Canada Dance Festival and artistic producer of the Ottawa Rhythm Initiative.
“I look forward to working to help set its future course to ensure its evolving role continues to serve and promote our city’s vibrant and diverse festivals, special events and fairs and supports our cultural scene and the creative economy as a whole,” said Ms. Piccinin in a statement.
Barbara Stacey served in the role as recently as last year.
