After three years with Paprika Festival, Daniel Carter will be stepping down from his position as General Manager effective April 2021.

Daniel says, “I’m very proud of the work I have done during my time at Paprika. The progress of this company over the past three years has been remarkable and I’m extremely grateful to the past and current staff, mentors, and participants who have played a role in advancing this vital organization. It has been a complete joy watching over 70 emerging artists come through Paprika during my time here - developing their voices as artists and future industry leaders. I truly believe Paprika plays an essential role in the theatre ecology of this city (and country) and develops some of the most intriguing, insightful, and important voices present in the industry.” 

During his time as General Manager, Daniel spearheaded an organizational rebrand, introduced participant honorariums across all programs, oversaw the completion of a new strategic plan for the company alongside previous leadership, and developed new revenue through sponsorships and partnerships that saw the company’s annual operating budget double.
