Home: Welcome


Jaime Sharp (she/they) is a Black queer arts leader, vocalist, and advocate residing on the stolen territory of the Three Fire Peoples, and members of the Kickapoo, Peoria, and Myaamia tribes. She strives to evolve organizational culture, driven by the question, how might we diversify leadership in the classical arts to challenge structural exclusion? Jaime has been influenced by her incredible mentors who have instilled in her the importance of transparency, candor, and the passing of information to mold the next generation.

As an active performer, Jaime also seeks to invite artists to explore their entrepreneurial talents in order to craft change on and off the stage. She believes the key to progressing the field begins with representation at the executive level; requiring not only thorough knowledge of the sector, a nuanced perspective on social issues, but the immovable promise to prioritize people before all else.
