Staff Spotlight
Misty Oakes
Audience Services & Volunteer Manager
Meet our new Audience Services & Volunteer Manager, Misty Oakes. Misty is an event manager, arts administrator and theatre artist who recently re-located from Vancouver. Feel free to reach her for box office or volunteer inquiries.

In the meantime, we've asked her a few questions to help you get to know her better:

1) What brought you to Powell River?
I have been visiting Powell River for the past decade, enjoying the natural beauty this magical place has to offer: the beaches, mountains, backroads, trails, lakes and rivers. But the warm-spirited, generous and kind people are what made me return time after time. It just made perfect sense to have a new beginning here and choose this as my present and future home. 
2) What is it about PRISMA that inspires you?
I love that this festival gives our community the chance to come together and discover that the arts have the transformative power to feed us all emotionally, cognitively, socially and spiritually. 

3) Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself!
I am borderline obsessed with my dogs, I have 2 rescue dogs and they get about 99% of my attention. I am an actor. I love reading and tend to read about 5-10 books at a time, I can’t just start one and finish it without starting the next one. 

4) What’s your perfect day?
A walkabout day with the dogs and coffee.
