Robin De Angelis will work closely with the Woodstock Art Gallery and The Woodstock Museum National Historic to help promote upcoming events and highlight the cultural offerings in the Friendly City.
WOODSTOCK - The City of Woodstock has hired a new Cultural Communications and Facility Rentals Coordinator.
Robin De Angelis will work closely with the Woodstock Art Gallery and the Woodstock Museum National Historic Site. She says her goal is to really highlight the cultural offerings that the City of Woodstock has.
"I will be serving the cultural department at the Art Gallery, at the Woodstock Museum NHS, as well the Market Centre Theatre. We are hoping to generate some interest in that building and really highlight the cultural offerings the City of Woodstock has and also create an overall encompassing strategy because we have had these different departments in the City working on their own and know we want to see them working together to really bring the best that they can to the community."
De Angelis has previously worked as a journalist with CBC in Sudbury, Kitchener and London, covering arts and culture, municipal politics and other local news. She graduated with a Masters of Media in Journalism and Communication from Western University in 2017.
Curator of the Woodstock Art Gallery Mary Reid is excited to have her on board.
“We are delighted that Robin has joined our small yet mighty team. Her passion for the arts and tenacious interest in connecting people with meaningful content will certainly push the Woodstock Art Gallery’s profile into new markets and garner a broader audience base.”
Museum Curator and Cultural Manager Karen Houston says echoed those remarks and is happy to have De Angelis join the team.
“The staff at the Museum love researching and creating historical exhibitions and programs for the community. We want to share the local stories and what we have in the collection. We are all really looking forward to having a communication plan and staff devoted to marketing the unique cultural offerings of the City of Woodstock.”
Admission to the Woodstock Art Gallery and the Woodstock Museum NHS is free and open to all.
