Mentor for MagPIE exchange arts management
Dani Fecko has been providing mentorship to Christy Offer as she has started up a new performing arts agency.
Magpie Exchange Arts Management is an Alberta-based performing arts agency representing innovative local theatre makers. Founded in 2018, its goal is to foster a regional culture of creation by facilitating national and international bookings of original work.
North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative
Dani is a collaborator on the North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative.
The North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative (nacdi) is a multi-disciplinary partnership that includes academics, policymakers and practitioners from North America and beyond.
Their objective is to establish cultural diplomacy as a critical practice: by interrogating and advancing cultural diplomacy, they aim to raise its profile as a valuable tool to foster international and transcultural relations—that is, to measure it and mobilize it to inform public policy development and implementation. Specifically, the strategically-important network of networks they are establishing seeks to demonstrate the value and use of cultural diplomacy to government bodies, cultural institutions, and cultural practitioners.
