Congratulations to Judy Harquail, Recipient of the 2011 Sandra Tulloch Award

Theatre Ontario is thrilled to announce that the 2011 Sandra Tulloch Award for Innovation in Arts and Culture has been awarded to Judy Harquail, in recognition of her extraordinary commitment and sustained contributions to arts and culture in Ontario, and in "enthusiastic recognition of those gifts, given freely, in service of the art and artists she so ably serves."

"I am very honoured to receive the 2011 Sandra Tulloch Award and to be recognized alongside such an amazing group of former recipients," said Judy. "I am proud to be able to play a role in the development and strengthening of arts and culture in the province of Ontario."

Judy has worked in arts management, marketing and facilitating for over 25 years.  She was the co-founder of For Dance And Opera, a joint sales, marketing and tour management service organization for mid-sized dance and opera companies, establishing innovative partnerships with presenters in Canada and worldwide.  Through her work with CCI—Ontario Presenters Network, she has connected and developed a strong community of arts presenters across the province.  CCI’s block bookings and Health Arts Leader programs help presenters deepen their curatorial competencies and strengthen their organizations.  She was also vital in establishing the Ontario Arts Council’s Ontario Dances program, increasing the range and diversity of dance available to Ontario communities outside Toronto.

The award, a statuette entitled “JOY”, shall be presented to Judy on September 19 in Toronto, as part of Theatre Ontario’s 40th Anniversary launch.  Colleagues and friends of Judy who are interested in attending should contact John Goddard, Executive Director at Theatre Ontario, at john@theatreontario.org or 416.408.4556 x.11.
