Bill Kimball, Artistic Producer

AboutUs.StaffBoard.PhotoBK.CreditPaulRellinger

Since graduating from Trent University in 1980 with a degree in Cultural Studies, Bill Kimball has been involved in many aspects of the Peterborough arts community, particularly in the areas of contemporary dance and theatre. He has contributed to the creation of live performance spaces in Peterborough, beginning with City Stage, a performance space operated by Artspace in the early 1980’s and continuing to the present with various renovations and improvements to the Market Hall. In 1994, Bill created a nationally recognized dance presenting program called Peterborough New Dance, and later expanded the mandate to theatre and other forms of performance while changing the name to Public Energy, a name which reflects his desire for the arts to be integrated into public life as much as possible. Bill is currently the Artistic Producer at Public Energy

Eva Fisher, Administrator

AboutUs.StaffBoard.PhotoEF

Eva Fisher is Public Energy's Administrator. She also works as the Program Coordinator with the Electric City Culture Council, and as a food columnist for kawarthaNOW.com. She comes to us with a love of performance first fostered in the role of "Jamie at 6" in the 4th Line Theatre's 1993 production of The Moodie Traill. Nowadays she is more comfortable in front of a spreadsheet than an audience. Eva has honed her management and event production skills through her role as General Manager of Kawartha Country Wines and the Kawartha Store. She holds a BScH in Geography with a minor in English from Queen's University.
