Summer Staff!
Hello, my name is Tiffany and I am this years summer Events Coordinator and Gallery Assistant. I am in charge of planning and leading the Illuminate Round 2 event, on July 20-25, among other tasks. At the end of my last semester before summer, I told myself that I had one goal: to get a summer job in my field. I was pretty happy when I was chosen for the internship at Harcourt House and so far it has been a fantastic workplace, more than I could have anticipated! The work I have done for Illuminate has gone pretty smoothly so far and I am hoping that it will be as successful as it was last summer (if not more). It is a unique event in the realm of art centres, so I hope to see many of you out for a fun afternoon and evening of celebration!

If you have any questions regarding Illuminate please feel free to contact me!
