Announced today, Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble has named Menon Dwarka their new Executive Director, effective May 14, 2019.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Art of Time Ensemble, an organization whose artistic vision I have long admired,” said Menon in a press release statement. “For me, this role offers a wonderful opportunity to combine my knowledge of the arts, technology, community and audience building to build on the strong base that Andrew [Burashko] and David [Abel] have established.”

Originally hailing from Toronto, Dwarka spent the majority of his career as a composer for television, and arts administrator in New York City for the 92nd Street Y, Harlem School of the Arts, Greenwich House, and as a writer and editorial consultant for Steinway’s in-house blog, Listen: Life with Music & Culture.

Since returning to Toronto in 2013, Dwarka ran 918 Bathurst, and most recently, Arts Etobicoke.

A fun fact: Dwarka is also the only Canadian arts administrator who can say they have been featured on the popular children’s television series, Sesame Street.

 

“Menon is a great addition to the Art of Time Ensemble,” said Andrew Burashko, founder and Artistic Director of the Art of Time Ensemble. “Not only does he bring a love, knowledge, and passion for music, but his international experience will allow us to bring the Art of Time Ensemble to new audiences. I look forward to collaborating with him.”

Dwarka replaces David Abel, who has since joined the National Arts Centre as Managing Director, English Theatre.
