On July 15, PuSh International Performing Arts Festival (PuSh) announced the appointment of Joyce Rosario as Associate Artistic Director. After seven seasons with PuSh, Rosario assumes her new role having recently guided the organization through a period of transition as Interim Artistic Director, from May 2018 through June 2019.

Rosario joined PuSh in May 2013 as Associate Curator where she held the position for four years. She was then promoted to Director of Programming in 2017, and Interim Artistic Director in 2018 following the resignation of Founder and Artistic and Executive Director Norman Armour.

“This appointment is a great honour and privilege, and I am excited to move into my new role as Associate Artistic Director following seven rewarding years of enormous professional and personal growth with the organization,” says Rosario. “After a stellar 2019 PuSh Festival, I’m looking forward to revitalizing and recharging the festival in collaboration with [Artistic and Executive Artistic Director] Franco Boni — a leader and colleague I deeply respect and have long admired — and with whom I have a 10-year history of artistic collaboration. […] We can’t wait to share what the 2020 PuSh Festival has in store!”

The 16th edition of the PuSh Festival will take place January 21–February 9, 2020. Full programming will be announced in November 2019.
