Alberta Craft Council Team

 

Jenna Stanton - Executive Director

executivedirector@albertacraft.ab.ca / 780-488-6611 ext. 228

"I have been a part of the Alberta Craft Council for the past 15 years, and often refer to it as my Craft 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 Alberta Craft Council 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 organization 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 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
