Kari Watson

Communications Specialist

Kari Watson (she/her/hers) is the communications specialist for Calgary Arts Development. She spends her days emailing, visiting organizations and artists, and adding listings to Calgary Art Development’s ever-growing online presence—including being on the team that launched SpaceFinder Alberta in 2016.

In her previous life, Kari was the long-standing (and only) events listings editor for Fast Forward Weekly (FFWD), and as such has been involved in the arts community for longer than she would like anyone to know.

When not hunting for rentable arts spaces in town and overdosing on lattés, she can be found taking in Calgary’s vibrant arts scene or watching European pro cycling.
