The Reelout Arts Project Inc. bid a fond farewell to a couple of beloved board directors at July’s Annual General Meeting and welcomed three new dynamic individuals to join our already fantastic board.  We wish all the best to Yve Patrimoine, Yasmine Djerbal and Peter Thompson in their future endeavours and thank you for your years of service!

SylviaWe’re pleased to introduce Sylvia Grills as our new Treasurer.  Sylvia is currently a PhD Student and OGS Scholar in the Sociology Department at Queen’s University.  As a volunteer she has spent many years involved with community theatre.  Sylvia is studying how pansexuality is socially produced, signified, and understood.

pierre-lucWe’re also pleased to welcome Pierre-Luc Landry to the board. Pierre-Luc is a dedicated activist, author and professor of literature studies at the Royal Military College of Canada. Our board chair Aara Macauley now faces competition for FIERCEST hair on Reelout’s board of directors.
