The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) has announced that Paul Moulton will be its next executive director.
Commenting on the appointment, Anne Ferguson-Switzer, member of the EAC Board of Directors and the Executive Director Hiring Committee, said “We are looking forward to working with Paul. He brings with him a diverse and rich background in the arts and a strong record as a leader. Paul knows this community and has demonstrated his commitment to arts and culture in Edmonton in both his professional and personal life.”
Mr. Moulton’s career in the arts has taken him to theatres and academic institutions across Canada, but he cites Edmonton as home to many of his career highlights. Among these was the opportunity to serve as the inaugural facility director of the Winspear Centre when it opened in the fall of 1997. Paul was also the first board chair of the Edmonton Arts Council and recently completed 6 years as chair of the board for the CKUA Radio Network.
Paul spent the past four years as executive director for the Arts and Heritage Foundation (AHF) of St. Albert. This organization is responsible for the operation of St. Albert’s Public Art Gallery, Museum, and Heritage Sites. He left his position with the AHF at the end of 2012.
