Smith arrives at the Creative Alliance with over twenty years of experience in arts non-profit and business management. His business experience includes executive operations, fundraising, staff management, and long-range planning, with additional experience in arts education, community engagement and community building events, and arts programming. Most recently at Minnesota Public Radio and the Fitzgerald Theater, Smith was accountable for revenue goals, newly imagined guest experiences that led to increased sales, and was the producer for the monthly community conversations series, In Focus, which centered conversations on issues impacting BIPOC communities. Smith started his career as an actor, director and choreographer, and will be bringing these experiences and his passion for the performing arts to the Creative Alliance as we continue to support diverse arts programming in Baltimore. Smith’s career has been committed to making arts and cultural programming accessible to all people through a mission-based lens of collaboration and strong fiscal management.
As executive director, Smith will work closely with staff and the Creative Alliance board to ensure the organization will continue to play a vital role in celebrating the communities it serves through the arts. One of his first acts as executive director will be to meet with as many members of the communities that comprise Baltimore and the Creative Alliance’s audience.
