The North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference Announces Keynote Speaker

May 21, 2021

Bill Sapsis, Director of the North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) is very happy to announce  that Jennifer Mallard, a Principal with Diamond Schmitt Architects in Toronto, Canada will give the NATEAC Keynote Address. In keeping with NATEAC tradition, the Keynote will lead off the 2021 Conference on Tuesday Morning, July 20.  
“Over the past three decades”, noted Bill, “Jennifer has been leading design teams and clients through the challenges of making  civic buildings, including public libraries, educational institutions, and her favorite—performing arts centers. Her ethos and passion for large scale institutions, like the National Arts Center in Ottawa, and small, community based venues like the Regent Park Arts and Cultural Center in Toronto, are in wonderful alignment with the goals set out by NATEAC”. Jennifer added “Seeing the spaces we help create being actively engaged with creative people – it’s why we do what we do.”
Jennifer graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa and has worked with design firms on Ottawa, Vancouver, London & Toronto.
