MEASURING TAPE GIRL
A short film directed and written by P. Marco Veltri, Measuring Tape Girl screened as part of Culture Days 2011, needing social media and other online promo as well as a specific invitation list to industry leaders. An examination of self-image and indecisiveness. A young woman approaching her 30s turns to posting online videos as a means of expressing her doubts and fears. Creating an alter ego named ‘Measuring Tape Girl’, she measures herself against others and before anyone rejects her, she does it herself.

IN THE ARTS COMMUNITY
ArtsVote was reformed in the fall of 2009 with two critical goals for the 2010 Toronto election: to communicate the value of the arts to incumbent and challenger candidates for Councillor and Mayor, and to mobilize artists and arts workers to vote for candidates who are committed to building a vibrant and cultured community. ArtsVote 2010 had three key tools: a Report Card (published and widely distributed in fall 2010), a phone/email “Get Out The Vote” campaign leading up to October 25, and a Mayoral Debate in partnership with Business for the Arts, the Toronto Arts Council, the Art Gallery of Ontario and Manifesto.

2011 HAROLD AWARDS
Since 1995 The Harold Awards have come to represent the independent and hard-working spirit of Toronto’s vibrant theatre community – a kind of rabble-rousing alternative to the Dora Awards. To be Harolded is an honour of the highest subversive order. Awards are bestowed from one individual to the next in recognition of outstanding and often under-recognized dedication on or off stage. As a prior recipient, work included website creation, press release writing and dissemination, social media planning, update and maintenance, mailing list creation, interview search and secure, opening night invitations, media wrangling.
