Position: Artistic Director
Company: Celtic Colours International Festival - Sydney, NS, Canada
Dawn is a passionate advocate and supporter of the arts. Her long-standing involvement as both a Cape Breton Gaelic style fiddler and step dancer, and as Artistic Director of the Celtic Colours International Festival are proof of that. Having performed at the inaugural event in 1997, she has been in the director role since 2009. Celtic Colours is a nine-day Cape Breton island wide festival that celebrates the Celtic diaspora with its emphasis of celebrating the Gaelic/Celtic cultures found on the island, while celebrating the many and important cultures that vibrantly exist there such as Acadian and Mi’kmaw. From concerts to dances and workshops to community suppers, they offer a full range of events against a gorgeous backdrop of autumn colours welcoming visitors and local audiences alike. Celtic Colours 2023 takes place October 6-14.
