Jenna Stanton - Executive Director

"I have been a part of the ACC for the past 15 years, and often refer to it as my ACC family. Since I graduated from ceramics at ACAD in 2003, I knew it was the next step in my career in Craft to work at and learn from an organization dedicated to the advancement and support of professional and emerging Craft artists. It was there I found I had a passion for arts admin, working with artists, and using my creative scheming brain to generate opportunities and advocate for Craft. After working for the ACC for seven great years, I left to return focus to my own ceramics practice for an MA in Ceramic Design in Stoke On Trent, England. Upon my return to Canada as Medalta’s Curator of Exhibitions and Collections I quickly rejoined the ACC as part of the Board of Directors.
 
I am always proud to be a part of this organization, the artists, staff and board are a creative dedicated team. I am more than happy to step into this role as interim Executive Director to continue to support, advocate, and create opportunities on behalf of our artists and the Craft Council, following in the footsteps of my mentor and favourite fellow creative schemer Tom McFall.
 
I look forward to rejoining the staff, spending more time in Edmonton and Calgary over the next few months, and connecting/reconnecting with our talented members & supporters." ~ Jenna Stanton
