Maya is a dedicated arts administrator with a lifelong love of the performing arts. An undergraduate degree in art history piqued her interest in the role institutions play on the cultural fabric of communities, which led her to the University of Toronto, where she graduated with a master’s degree in museum studies. While in Toronto, Maya worked for Canada’s National Ballet School, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Bata Shoe Museum. Following her master’s, she was offered a 10-month Graduate Internship in public affairs at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Maya returned to Vancouver to work for the PuSh Festival and then Bard on the Beach, in her current role as Marketing Manager. Maya sits on the Accessibility Committee and the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group at Bard. She also serves on the Board of Directors for Carousel Theatre for Young People. Maya takes great pride in her South Asian heritage and is honoured to be included amongst all these incredible professionals!
