Music section update

May 11, 2022

Jessica DeljouraveshJessica Deljouravesh has returned to her home position at the Ontario Arts Council (OAC), as one of two Music Officers, alongside classical music specialist David Parsons.

Jessica served in two temporary positions between November 2020 and April 2022 – first, as Interim Associate Director of Granting, during Elise Chalmers’s parental leave, and as Granting Projects Officer working together with Indigenous Arts Officer Erika Iserhoff on the roll-out of the one-time Indigenous Arts Support programs.

We regretfully say goodbye to Dwayne Dixon who served as Interim Music Officer during Jessica’s secondment. Our regret is offset by the good news of Dwayne’s upcoming projects including curating an upcoming exhibit for ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021-2022. We look forward to celebrating this and his other accomplishments.
