Shannon Halberstadt

Artist Trust

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 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 individual artists have to inspire positive personal and community transformation. She’s thrilled to bring to Artist Trust a 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).
