My name is Dominique Léger (they/them) and I am a queer, trans, and Acadian cultural worker with a BFA in Film Studies from Concordia University.

Since 2016 I have immersed myself in Moncton’s thriving cultural community, working and volunteering for many festivals and organizations such as the Frye Festival, the Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie, and the Galerie Sans Nom. Being a cultural worker can mean many things, but for me it’s having the privilege to work within a community of artists, arts administrators, volunteers, freelancers, friends, and all-around caring and dynamic people to create great events and experiences. My passion lies in curation. I love creating links and dialogues between artists, filmmakers, films, and works with an audience.

I currently live on unceded Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq territory (Moncton) with my dog Tulipe. Outside of work I love a good beach day or exploring the Bay of Fundy (my favourite place on Earth). I also love spending time of my couch, where you can find me playing Tears of the Kingdom or watching Japanese films from the 60s.

I’m thrilled to join the wonderful artsnb team and am looking forward to working with New Brunswick artists and arts organizations!
