Welcoming A New Staff Member!
We are excited to introduce our new Development & Support Services Coordinator, Kiera Gillock, to the Columbia Festival of the Arts Team.  

Kiera comes to the Festival with a Master of Science in Arts Administration from Drexel University and a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and Film from McDaniel College.  She has multiple years of experience as Development Coordinator for Alabama Blues Project in Tuscaloosa, AL where she provided excellent support in grant-writing and donor management, as well as maintained social media and advertising accounts.

As Event Supervisor for The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, Kiera coordinated and performed valuable event organization and cleanup. Her most recent organizational work as Project Coordinator with Theatre Tuscaloosa excelled in several skill areas of great importance to Columbia Festival of the Arts, including the development and production of the theatre’s SecondStage program.

Kiera regularly coordinated communications with corporate sponsors and partner University personnel. Her database management and organizational skills include administration and maintenance of the theatre’s archives and patron files.

In addition, Kiera brings supplemental skills of great value that include the creation and implementation of digital, video, and print media with excellent film & editing of promotional video content for web and cable viewing, as well as archival and behind-the-scenes content.
