Today we are so thrilled to share that Monique Courcy will join us in October as our new Executive Director!
Monique grew up in the Yakima valley before earning a BFA in Dance from the University of Washington and an MFA in Arts Leadership from Seattle University. She has spent the last six years working at TeenTix partner organization On the Boards, where she manages Digital Media and OntheBoards.tv, a pioneering project that makes high-definition recordings of contemporary performances accessible to an international audience through streaming and downloads. In this role, Monique has expanded the program’s national reach, producing films and developing a video-on-demand platform that now reaches thousands of students at over 100 universities across the globe. OntheBoards.tv has been profiled in the New York Times, and is the winner of a 2015 Arts Entrepreneur Award from Fractured Atlas.
Monique first became involved with TeenTix when she served as a program assistant for the Contemporary Performance Cool Kids Club while earning her MFA. She was inspired by the depth of access, space for inquisition, and close community that the program nurtured with its teen participants, and she has remained a strong ally to TeenTix ever since.
