Edmond Kilpatrick - Storyteller and artist.

As an artist and facilitator my aim is to use the arts as a means for people to tell their story and express who they are with dignity and compassion.

Edmond Kilpatrick held a professional dance career for over twenty years. His performing career is highlighted by nine years as a featured principle dancer at Ballet BC, as well as thirteen years as an independent contemporary dancer. He has choreographed over twenty dances for stage and film that have been produced in festivals as well as in self and co-presentations. Edmond is a graduate student at Simon Fraser University in the Master of Arts Education program where he created the Shelly Project and completed a BFA from SFU in dance in only two years, where he graduated first class with distinction.

 

Edmond is an experienced arts educator. He developed the Boys Only Program at Arts Umbrella, funded by the Koerner Foundation and taught as a sessional instructor in the dance and theatre programs at the SFU School of Contemporary Arts since 2008.

Edmond’s career has transitioned from dance performance to film and arts for social change facilitation. He is also a leader in the arts community as the board chair for Made in BC: dance on film, and an emerging arts administrator.
