Janet Larkman

President

Janet Larkman (she/her) is honoured to serve as Vice President of APA — an organization that challenges, inspires, and enriches what we do as presenters. She is grateful to live in the Kespukwitk region of Mi’kmaki/Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, where she has worked in community and the arts for the past 30 years. Janet is Executive Director of King’s Theatre, a 220-seat venue celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Since taking the helm in 2016, her work has been focused on diversity, accessibility, and community engagement. These days Janet and her tech team are busy exploring possibilities for the new sound, lighting, and video recording systems they installed during covid-mandated dark days. She loves being a part of the APA ecosystem, where the intersection of art, community, and connection to place makes all things possible.
