The Elm Street Board of Directors announced Saturday that Christopher Brazelton has been added to the group’s management team as operations director.
Brazelton will be involved in planning and implementing projects planned for the new Elm Street Cultural Arts Village four-acre site in downtown Woodstock and will report to the board of directors, a news release said.
“Christopher’s position as operations director at Elm Street will consist of coordination of annual and long-term planning; management of Elm Street Theater productions, rehearsals, camps along with facility rentals and maintenance; management of grant activities, and the coordination of volunteer programs and training,“ said Shawn McLeod, Elm Street Board president.
Brazelton was chosen for his experience in day-to-day operational, marketing and managerial tasks for a number of creative and production organizations in the nonprofit, educational, and commercial sectors and has served as executive director of Leave Your Mark Productions and 23 Main Stage in Tallahassee, Fla.
When completed, the restored Reeves home will house exhibition gallery space and artist’s studios and be a crowning venue for local artists to develop and display their work.
It will also provide space for community cultural events and festivals.
Also planned for the site is a new, state-of-the-art Elm Street Theater that will provide a community performance space and rehearsal rooms for theater workshops and classes, and will offer full support to the local performing arts community.
