Get On Board! Monthly Member Profile: Derek Capitaine

Unknown-7Derek Capitaine has a strong background in theatre. This brings him to his position on the ArtSpring board and is particularly relevant to his work as chair of the Building Committee. By being familiar with the building process, he contributes to ArtSpring’s perpetual improvement.

After completing his BFA at the University of Victoria, he went to the Banff School as an apprentice. There, he honed his skills in set and scenic construction with mentors who came to the Banff Centre themselves to further their talents during the summer when they were not working in their own theatres. Derek took that experience to a number of theatres in Canada including the Globe Theatre in Regina, Alberta Theatre Projects in Calgary, and the Belfry Theatre in Victoria.

Derek left theatre work in 1997 and moved on to work at Canada Post in Information Technology, arriving in Salt Spring in 2005 and entering the publishing field then.  He brings his diverse talents, his background, and his steady presence to the board.
