This week the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo announced Kathryn Levandier as its new Director of Development.
Levandier will support the Tattoo’s fundraising, development, and partnership efforts, as well as work with donors, patrons, and government agencies in support of the future of the show.
“I am thrilled to be joining the team at the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo,” said Levandier. “ I look forward to working closely with supporters who share the vision of keeping the tradition of the Tattoo alive.”
She is joining the Tattoo from the IWK Foundation, an organization that works to champion excellence in health care for women and children in the Maritimes. There, she worked with both corporate and community partners across the Maritimes.
“We’re excited to work with Kathryn to pursue new ways for donors, partners and other funders to get involved and support the Tattoo,” said Scott Long, the Tattoo’s managing director and executive producer.
The Tattoo is in its 45th year celebrating music, dance, military heritage and culture showcasing a taste of Nova Scotia, and the world. This year they will celebrate The Power of Peace; how the resolution of conflict brings about peace; how humanitarians endeavour to create change, and how the bond of friendship between participating countries have strengthened over 40 years.
“Her success in championing local institutions and advocating on their behalf to fulfill their philanthropic goals makes her a welcome addition to the Tattoo’s Production Team. We’re eager to get to work and see how we can evolve the charitable arm of the Tattoo,” said Long.
The Tattoo will be releasing the full cast for this year’s show at the end of April. However, the United States Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team has been confirmed to be returning with a precision drill routine.
The Tattoo runs June 29 through July 6 at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax.
