Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District is pleased to announce that Danielle Whitmore has been hired to lead and manage the new Arts and Entertainment Program for the District.
Danielle will be responsible for the programs and services in the new and renovated facilities in Village/Plaza Park as well as creating new opportunities for Art Programs throughout the District.
Danielle is an accomplished, creative, and experienced arts management professional who brings over fifteen years of experience leading hands-on community-driven arts programming, including art education embedded in California Visual and Performing Arts Standards (VAPA), performing arts – theatre, music and dance, visual arts – painting, drawing, ceramics, photography, and digital, artistic workshops, and public art projects.
She has effectively launched new programs that have been identified as models for innovation, sustainability, and creatively fueling the economy. In addition, her service on state-wide arts advocacy boards along with presentations at national conventions such as ArtPlace America and Farm to Fork and various regional economic development groups, help to further the voice of the creative economy and placemaking strategies through an artistic lens.
With a professional background in marketing and public relations, Whitmore endeavors to foster the relationships between artists and the community while strengthening the organization's partnerships with key stakeholders, including foundations, businesses, and education.
Danielle pursues vocal music, performing with various ensemble vocal groups from acapella to jazz. Her most promising project to date is her two daughters – now self-sustaining and relatively well-behaved women.
Please join us in welcoming Danielle to the Fair Oaks Community.
