A new General Co-Director at OBORO!
OBORO’s Board of Directors proudly announces the appointment of Émilie Boudrias to the position of General Co-Director and Director of Development. She will work alongside Claudine Hubert, who remains General Co-Director and Artistic Director.
OBORO is fortunate to rely on the expertise, vision and leadership of an emerging voice in arts administration to achieve its strategic goals, develop exciting projects and create new opportunities for its community.
Émilie Boudrias majored in communications at UQAM with an interactive multimedia profile. She has been active in the cultural field since 2002 in project management, communication and research. Her experience covers the fields of digital arts and contemporary dance (Sylvain Émard Danse). She held a research assistant position for DOCAM (Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage). For over seven years, she worked for the Association for Electroacoustic Research and Creation (ACREQ), as Development Officer (2003-2007) for the Elektra Festival and Project Manager for the International Biennial of Digital Art (BIAN 2010-2014). After two years as Programming Coordinator for OBORO (2015-2017), she joins our executive team where she will develop strategic partnerships and extend OBORO’s outreach within its community.
We take this opportunity to extend heartfelt acknowledgments to Bernard Bilodeau who held the position of Administrative Director for 30 years, and the General Co-Directorship since 2014. Thanks to his meticulous work and consistency, he leaves OBORO the legacy of a healthy artist-run centre, ready to enter a new phase of its history.
New members in the team!
We are very pleased to announce the arrival of Marion Malique as OBORO’s new communications coordinator. Marion brings a solid experience in online community management, as well as knowledge drawn from cultural communities, from literature to dance, visual and media arts. Over the past four years she worked on social networking and audience development for Arsenal Montreal and the Musée d’art de Joliette. Passionate about culture and communications, Marion made her debut as a cultural columnist and radio host in 2010 in Switzerland before joining the morning show at CIBL 101.5 and Spirale magazine as a dance critic. While maintaining her involvement in the cultural field, she is writing a research and creative writing Master’s thesis in French language and literature at McGill University. Welcome to OBORO, Marion!
Marion’s arrival marks the departure of Sylvaine Chassay. Over the past 7 years, Sylvaine generously offered her time, vision and expertise to OBORO. Initially hired as programming coordinator, she took on the position of communications coordinator where she developed high standards for all the writing material produced by the organisation as well as a textual signature of her own. Sylvaine also left her mark in our cultural mediation program, including for the Sonorium project – alongside Magali Babin and Stéphane Claude – and by hosting school groups during our exhibitions. She also greatly contributed to making OBORO a welcoming place for children and families. She will now devote her time to her artistic practice. Sylvaine, thank you for your kind heart and commitment! We will miss you, but we know our paths will cross again. We wish you all the best with your upcoming projects.
In addition, OBORO is pleased to join forces with Mireille N’gouan, as an external who accountant. Mireille has extensive experience in several arts organizations, particularly in new media and digital art. Her attention to detail ensures a close follow-up of all figures and invoicing, while supporting the team with all of our administrative operations. Thank you Mireille, we are very lucky to have you among us!
