Shannon Roach Halberstadt is the CEO at Artist Trust, leading the organization’s efforts to help Washington State’s artists of all disciplines thrive.
A California native, Shannon was lured to Washington State by its art, music, and culture, and she has been working in arts leadership in the PNW for over two decades. Shannon was drawn to work with Artist Trust because she’s a firm believer in the power of individual artists to inspire positive personal and community transformation. She’s thrilled to bring to Artist Trust depth of administrative experience in many disciplines and locations, including roles as the Executive Director at Spokane Arts, PNW Executive Director at The Recording Academy (the GRAMMYs), Managing Director at Seattle’s The Vera Project, as well as experience at The Old Fire House (Redmond, WA), The Henry Gallery (Seattle, WA), and On the Boards Theater (Seattle, WA).
Among her many volunteer and advisory roles, Shannon has been a member of Seattle’s Music Commission, Leadership Tomorrow’s (King County) Curriculum Committee, and a Mayoral appointee to the Seattle Center Advisory Commission, and a Board member of Reel Grrls. She currently serves on the Boards of Terrain, Spokane and the Washington State Arts Alliance.
