Kathy Kirkaldie serves as Fine Arts Coordinator for the UW arts units, where she is responsible for publicity, grantwriting, editing/writing,  graphic design, website design/maintenance, social media,  and special projects, among other tasks.  Kathy has worked as a writer/editor, scientific editor, grantwriter, publicist, freelance writer, ESL teacher, JO gymnastics judge, archivist, band member, and long-time youth leader.  She loves to engage in inquiry of all kinds, whether in the arts, sciences, or humanities.  Mostly, she just likes hanging with her family and being outside. Selected acting credits include THE CHILDREN’S HOUR, BURIED CHILD, SHEAR MADNESS, CRIMES OF THE HEART, and DEATH OF A SALESMAN, but Kathy’s favourite productions to date have been her daughters, Claire and Grace, and her son, Benjamin.
