About Me

Deborah Griffiths M.A.

Curator, Executive Director, Writer


Raised as a third culture person as my family lived in various communities and countries, I’m interested in peoples’ stories and goals. I have over 35 years’ experience in curatorial research and writing: exhibit storylines, project applications, research, books, and grants. My Administration experience includes: corporate, local, provincial, and federal levels of reporting and funding and year-round planning and program delivery. My main interests are in projects that promote wellness, enjoyment, health and diversity.
