NAC Staff

Stephen Remus

Minister of Energy, Minds, and Resources

I’ve been involved at NAC for over 15 years, as a volunteer, board director and staff member. Creatively, I’m primarily a screen-printer, but I also work in 16mm film and video and I paint and write from time-to-time. I was awarded the City of St. Catharines 2009 Trillium Established Artist Award. I consider my experience, wealth of community contacts, and ability to bring people together to work toward a common goal things I bring to the benefit of NAC.

Minister of Communications

I’ve worked at NAC since 2005. I coordinate, promote, and help determine NAC’s full slate of exhibits in the Show Room, Plate Glass, and Flea Market Galleries, as well as the Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery. I also oversee the contracting of artists and supervise bookkeeping. I’m a print designer, performer, and co-founder of Suitcase in Point Theatre Company and the In the Soil Arts Festival. I recently co-directed a remount of Paris La Nuit by founding member of the Niagara Artists Centre, Dennis Tourbin.

I‘m a sculpture graduate from OCADU, who spent the past few years curating and managing residencies for Greenbelt Arts in Toronto. Before that, I worked for the student union as a programming coordinator, policy analyst, and lobbyist, getting my start in arts administration. I’m thrilled to be home and working at the NAC, a place I’ve been visiting since I was twelve, growing up in the Glenridge area. Besides managing administrative tasks in the NAC office, I also assist with member relations and events.
