The Telling Room

Congratulations to the near Director, Heather Davis!

After a thorough search process involving staff and board members, it is with great pleasure that the Telling Room announces that Heather Davis has been chosen to be the next Executive Director. Heather brings an amazing skill set as a teacher, leader, and fundraiser to the position–skills that she honed during her time as Development Director at the TR, at the Harlem Children’s Zone and Theatre Action Project, and while co-founding Austin Bat Cave. Please join The Telling Room in welcoming her to this position!

Heather will start in her new role in mid-July, and, in the meantime, Gibson Fay-LeBlanc who leaves the director position and Heather will be working together to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The Telling Room is extremely excited about the passion, experience, and vision that Heather brings to her new role on an already talented team. And they look forward to the next five years as they continue to develop and improve on how they help kids build their confidence, strengthen their literacy skills, and bring their stories to the world.

The Telling Room is the 2011 recipient of the Imagination Intensive Community award. With funding this year from the Kennedy Center, the Maine Arts Commission, the Maine Department of Education, and Bangor Savings Bank, the Imagination Intensive Communities program is in its second year of identifying and celebrating, through an open application process, those Maine communities where schools and partnering organizations of all kinds invest in the imaginative development of children and youth.
