A Fond Farewell to Tracy Carroll.
For the past 6 years, Tracy has worked tirelessly for APN as our Edmonton Liaison and more recently as our Artistic Associate North. I cannot express strongly enough what a champion she has been for the organization. She has been there for the good times and the bad times and her energy and commitment to the entire membership has never wavered. But alas, all good things must come to an end and it is with a touch of sadness that we announce that Tracy is moving on from APN.
I personally want to thank Tracy who has been a fantastic colleague, compatriot and friend. APN wouldn’t be where it is today without Tracy, her guidance, passion and love for playwrights and new plays. Below are her own words sent to the community on her last day of work:
"It has been an absolute pleasure serving you as the Northern rep of the organization and I do hope that you will continue to take advantage of APN programming and of course continue to write your plays!
I'll continue to work in Edmonton as a freelance director and dramaturg, consultant, project coordinator and yoga instructor - yup, that too! And am hanging onto one contract with APN, coordinating Peep Show and the staged readings at the SkirtsAfire, herArts festival.
So I only look forward to crossing paths with you again...
All the best!!
All the best to you Tracy…you will be missed and hard to replace. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and getting to know you. I’ll miss our chats…your brilliant observations on the dramaturgical committee…and your laugh.
So if you see Tracy over the next few weeks, please shake her hand, thank her or buy her a London Fog (I will admit, I was never quite sure what that was). She truly has been an unsung hero for APN and our northern members.
