We are thrilled to announce Kerri Jamison as our new Operations Director! In this position, Kerri will administer all the affairs of the organization in cooperation with the Artistic Director, Board and Production Team. This includes administrative operating functions, on-ice festival logistics, accessibility, and management of grants, sponsors, program budget, and contracts.
Kerri joins ASP with an extensive professional arts background spanning both nonprofit and private creative sectors from Walker Art Center and Northern Lights.mn to Fallon and Aveda. She thrives on supporting artists and the creative process to realize ambitious ideas, especially those taking place in unusual spaces. As a photographer and quiet-sports enthusiast, Kerri says she maintained her sanity during quarantine by venturing out into nature, exploring water in all its forms throughout the seasons, particularly winter. Naturally, it seems fitting for her to join Art Shanty Projects to help us build our vibrant arts community on ice.
“I’ve been a participant and supporter of ASP since its Medicine Lake beginnings and am excited to help bring the festival back for 2022. I’m energized by the collective creative energy ASP inspires, and love using my logistical skills to support artists and art-making. Nature, community, and creativity were essential during quarantine. As we emerge, I look forward to bringing people together for much needed joyful art experiences in community.”
