The board of the Bossier Arts Council recently announced the promotion of Anne Susman to the position of Executive Director. She will lead the organization in providing arts services and programming to the citizens of Bossier City and the parish.

Ms. Susman joined the Bossier Arts Council in 2004 as the Community Development Coordinator and workeded on projects such as Stage Manager for East Bank Theatre productions, ArtBreak Idol, and numerous parish-and state-wide art events.

Ms. Susman is credited with expanding the Bossier Arts Council’s Art-in-Education programming and Summer Creativity Camp, as well as developing and maintaining ongoing relationships with local and state level arts organizations, including RUPAR, the Rural Underserved Presenters and Representatives Network.

The position of Executive Director was recently vacated when Richard Folmer, Artistic Director for the Bossier Arts Council, stepped down so he could focus his attention on East Bank Theatre while pursuing his film and acting career.
