A seasoned arts professional with over 15 years of experience in the cultural and not-for-profit sectors, Tim Whalley has served in leadership and strategic roles at a number of arts organizations across Toronto.

Following this leadership role, Tim held the position of Associate Director of Government & Community Relations at the Luminato Festival and then at Canadian Stage. He has taught in the Gallery and Art Museum Management program at Western University – Continuing Studies and his visual art and curatorial projects have been featured in venues throughout Toronto. Tim has participated in a number of arts advocacy initiatives and currently sits on the Toronto Arts Foundation Advocacy Network and TAPA Advocacy Committee.
