As the newest addition to the team, Lisa Fiorilli joins WorkInCulture in the role of Research and Outreach Manager, responsible for leading the organization’s newly announced research activities.

She comes on board with experience in the research, funding and policy environments of the cultural industries, with stints at the Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA), Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC), and the Bell Fund. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Public Policy and Administration from Ryerson University, and is keen to apply her academic and professional skills in support of arts and culture workers across the province.

Here are Lisa's answers to some questions we asked:

Q: What was your experience with WorkInCulture prior to starting this position? What are you most excited about as a new team member?

Like almost everyone I know working in the sector, I have used WorkInCulture’s job board to secure great professional opportunities. That being said, WorkInCulture does so much more than the job board, and I’m very excited to immerse myself in the various professional and skills development programs that we offer.

Q: What is an interesting or fun thing you’re currently working on?

On the professional side, I’m very interested in embarking on the labour market research project that WorkInCulture will be spearheading in the near future. My passion is connecting the theoretical with the practical, so I think this is a great opportunity to collect data that has real world impact. On the personal side, I also do some freelance writing work for a few different music blogs focused on Canadian talent, so I enjoy playing a small part in supporting the great emerging musical talent made right here in Canada.

Q: What’s your favourite TV show and the most interesting book you ever read?

I find it hard to choose just one, but lately I’ve been watching a lot of Orphan Black, and I just couldn’t put down Zoe Whittall’s The Best Kind of People
