Leading arts managers were honoured Monday as nominees at the Rozsa Awards, with two taking home awards.
Sara Leishman, executive director of Calgary Folk Music Festival, was recognized for excellence in arts management. Other nominees were Brendan Lord, executive director of Choir Alberta, and Carol Holmes, executive director of Writer’s Guild of Alberta.
Tara Owen, chair of the Alberta Craft Council, was recognized for excellence in board leadership. The other nominees were Wendy Dupree, chair of the Citadel Theatre, and Cindy Andrew, chair of CKUA Radio Network.
An annual event, the Rozsa Awards honour arts executives who work behind the scenes, showing transformational leadership, innovation and outstanding management. They are chosen by a jury of peers, which this year included Sheila O’Brien and Bob McPhee.
Unique in Canada, the Rozsa Awards are highly sought-after with a monetary prize, accompanying public profile, and educational and professional development opportunities. Founded by Ted and Lola Rozsa in 2002, the foundation has since distributed over $1 million in benefits to award recipients and their organizations across Alberta.
