Janis Monture will steer WCC leadership transition during next several weeks

BRANTFORD – After 14 years of leading Brantford’s Woodland Cultural Centre (WWC), Executive Director Janis Monture has announced her upcoming resignation, effective March 5, 2017.

Monture, who has led the centre through transition and countless First Nations-focused artistic exhibitions, events and competitions for many years, will be greatly missed by coworkers, volunteers, board members and artists of the WCC.

She has accepted a new position as Director of Tourism and Cultural Initiatives with Six Nations Development Corporation.

“We deeply value the numerous contributions that Janis has made to build, strengthen and promote the value of the Woodland Cultural Centre to the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte and Wahta Mohawks,” said Philip Franks, chairperson “While we will miss Janis’ leadership, we want to thank her very much for her hard work and dedication, and wish her all the best in her new role with Six Nations Development Corporation. Our Board of Directors knows that our leadership transition will be smooth with Janis’ continued work over the coming weeks.”

Monture has served as WCC Executive Director since 2003. She has also previously served as the Artistic Director for the Planet IndigenUS Festival hosted at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.
