The Board of Governors of Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity announced it has extended Janice Price’s contract as President and CEO until March 31, 2023. Janice will lead Canada’s largest postgraduate arts and leadership training institution to a major milestone anniversary in 2023 when Banff Centre enters its 90th anniversary season. Janice started the position of President and CEO of Banff Centre in 2015 and was recently recognized as one of Canada’s leading female arts executives having been awarded the WXN Top 100 Most Powerful Women Award in 2018.
The Board of Governors is pleased that Janice will build on the stability and continuity she’s set since her arrival. Janice said:
“It’s an honour to lead Banff Centre, a cultural jewel for Alberta, Canada and the world. We are proud of the renewal of our campus and thanks to the recent gift by the family of Jenny Belzberg we will be renewing our main theatre in 2019-2020. I am also excited to advance our strategic plan to serve the 4,000 artists and leaders who benefit from our educational programs every year.”
