Tom Arthur Davis

July 15, 2022

Tom is a theatre artist and producer. Originally from the unceded territory of the Algonquin-Anishinabeg nation (Ottawa) with colonial lineage from Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland), he has recently relocated to Lekwungen territory (Victoria), after spending most of his career in Tkaronto (Toronto).

In 2009, he co-founded Pandemic Theatre (then less distastefully named), for which he has acted as the Artistic Director for the past thirteen years. From 2018-2022, Tom worked for Why Not Theatre, taking on the Managing Producer role for the company’s Provoke Platform (initiatives that aim to remove barriers for artists). From 2014-2019, he worked for the Toronto Fringe in multiple capacities, including as the inaugural director and program designer of TENT, an educational program that teaches entrepreneurial skills to emerging theatre artists.

Tom is excited to be working with PuSh as the Interim Director of Programming, where he is filling in for Gabrielle Martin, helping to realize her curatorial vision for the 2023 and 2024 festivals.
