My name is Erica and I’m a settler born to Eastern European Ashkenazi immigrants and raised in Tkaron:to, Dish With One Spoon Wampum Covenant Territory/Toronto. I’m passionate about designing opportunities to advance progressive social change. Most recently, I was the Events Curator at the Broadbent Institute where I developed programming and produced events to support a more just and fair Canada. Before that I was Literary Manager at Toronto’s Nightwood Theatre, leading the development process of new plays written by women to stages across the country and around the world.
As an educator and facilitator, I’ve liaised with various organizations in politics, labour, culture and the arts, to bring creative strategies to their outreach and communication initiatives. I’ve been a dramaturg and director for a myriad of interdisciplinary festivals and have curated and hosted events with the purpose of engaging audiences with specific calls to action.
I hold a Masters of Arts from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Art from the University of British Columbia and am the mom of two daughters. I am thrilled to be part of the CRE team.
