Kirsten LaBonte is a dog person, an outdoors enthusiast, and a lover of all things Toronto. She first studied Theatre Production and Design at York University, specializing in both the technical and managerial elements of the trade.
She quickly established herself in the theatre community as a Jill-of-many trades, which has served her well throughout her career.
Kirsten’s diversified skillset allowed her to take on multiple theatre projects and events all over the world, including the Prague Quadrennial and the World Stage Design festival in Cardiff, Wales. After her return to Toronto, she worked for Harbourfront Centre on a range of live events, was the Logistics and Operations Manager for the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 2016, and worked for the City of Toronto on events and programs, including Nuit Blanche, Doors Open, Cavalcade of Lights, and most recently C150-Canada Days where she coordinated logistics for four event sites across the city.
She is thrilled to be a part of the powerhouse team put together by The Bentway Conservancy. She currently lives and works out of Toronto, thriving on the vibrant Canadian art scene.
