(From the OYR newsletter:)
Michael Green, Curator of the High Performance Rodeo and Co-Artistic Director of One Yellow Rabbit, is taking a temporary leave of absence from OYR after having been named Creative Producer of Calgary 2012.
Calgary 2012, arising from the city’s bid to be named Cultural Capital of Canada in 2012, is a 12-month cultural celebration and legacy-building initiative. For more information on Calgary 2012, visit calgary2012.com.
“The 2012 High Performance Rodeo stands to be one of the best yet,” says Erin O’Connor, Executive Director of OYR and Managing Producer of HPR. “We’re thrilled to support Michael in his new role at Calgary 2012 and look forward to participating in this celebration of Calgary culture.”
Following the announcement of Michael Green’s leave of absence, Mark Hopkins has been named Associate Producer of the High Performance Rodeo to help manage the 2012 and 2013 editions of the festival.
