Honouring Arts Innovators and the Legacy of Sandy Tulloch

Sandra Tulloch was Executive Director of Theatre Ontario for nearly twenty years.  During that time, she was renowned not just for her innovation within the theatre sector, but across arts and cultural disciplines.

Theatre Ontario is thrilled to announce that the award will be sustained through the sponsorship of Marinucci & Company, Chartered Accountants.

“We are delighted to have Marinucci & Company sponsor the Sandra Tulloch Award,” said Carol Beauchamp, Executive Director of Theatre Ontario.  “This award honours Sandy’s amazing legacy.  The list of past recipients recognizes many unsung heroes in arts and culture across sectors.  There are so many hard working innovators worthy of recognition, and I’m thrilled to have passionate arts supporter like Sam champion this award."

Past recipients of the award are Tim Jones & Susan Serran, Angela Rebeiro, Jane Marsland, Myles Warren, Jini Stolk, Claire Hopkinson, Peter Honeywell, Janis Barlow, Winston Morgan, Judy Harquail, and Heather Young.

“Working with a variety of arts organizations, I’m always impressed by people like Sandy and the award’s recipients who show initiative and leadership across sectors,” said Sam Marinucci.  “I’m proud that we can honour Sandy’s legacy with this sponsorship.”

Theatre Ontario encourages you to put your thinking caps on—we will be accepting nominations for the 2014 Sandra Tulloch Award for Innovation in Arts and Culture beginning September 1.  The deadline for nominations is November 30.
