Izzie (she/her) is very excited to be joining the TAPA team as the Executive Management Intern, a shared position with the Toronto Fringe and funded by the Metcalf Foundation’s Performing Art Internship program. Izzie is a Peruvian-born, Canadian-raised emerging theatre creator, producer, and arts administrator based in Toronto. This year she will be learning from and working with TAPA Executive Director, Jacoba Knaapen, and Toronto Fringe Executive Director, Lucy Eveleigh, both powerhouse leaders in Toronto’s art sector.
Izzie’s background is in theatre, live performance, and event management. Her interests lie in theatre theory, performance and event production, and artistic creation. During her time with TAPA she hopes to learn more about the policy and structures that allow for the creation of art. Izzie is passionate about growing the Canadian arts sector to better support and encompass the vibrant and diverse communities it serves.
