Ashley Daniel Foot

June 18, 2020

Since the age of eight, Ashley Daniel Foot has been in love with the arts. An avid CBC fan, he listened to the late Jurgen Goethe on CBC Radio 2 every day and started his own home-made daily radio show featuring a mixture of classical, jazz, musical theatre and popular music. Exposure to a wide range of musical genres led Ashley to discover his passion for the arts.  Boundlessly curious about all mediums of culture, Ashley is also the Manager of Partnerships and Engagement at Vancouver Opera.

While working as a communications strategist at  Murray Paterson Marketing Group, Ashley carefully guided such clients as Electric Company Theatre, Opera Atelier, ProArteDanza, and other highly regarded arts organizations in communications and media relations strategy.

As a broadcaster, Ashley’s work has appeared on CBC Radio and Radio Canada International.  In 2006, he created one of the web’s first podcasts— called Radio Allegro, featuring a mixture of commentary, celebrity interviews, and audio documentaries. One of of his favourite broadcast moments was going backstage to talk with Lin Manuel Miranda and the creative team of the original Off-Broadway cast of In the Heights.

More recently Ashley worked for the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s Arts and Culture Division as the Marketing and Community Outreach Specialist for the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre.
