Dr. Christine Griffith
A lifelong and passionate supporter of the arts, Christine moved to her adopted home of Hamilton in 2021, after a career in senior leadership roles in health care and postsecondary education in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario. Since becoming a Hamiltonian, she has been giving her time and talents to various volunteer causes, such as the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. She is enormously delighted to join the Arts For All community, and in particular, to be able to serve on its Board of Directors.
Retiring in 2022 from the Bench of the Ontario Court of
Justice following a career in law spanning over 30 years,

governance, analysis and strategic development.
Having been a founding member of this Board in 1999,
Patrice has truly come full circle by returning to serve
Arts For All once again. Born and raised in “The
Hammer” and known as a community activist and
consensus-builder, Patrice looks forward to working with
the Artistic Director and fellow directors to bring
education in arts to our most vulnerable children and
Marin is Co-Owner and Creative Director of Kitestring, a local design agency serving community-based businesses in Hamilton and the surrounding area.

As a member of the AFA board, Marin hopes to further engage with the arts and strengthen our community through increased arts access and programming.
