Board of Directors

Don Hildebrandt – President/Interm Treasurer

Don Hildebrandt was a drama major at the University of Winnipeg from 1976 – 1979. After graduation, he and his new wife Carolyn moved to Ontario and became involved in social services as group home parents for troubled youth. Don also worked in a youth remand centre and later moved into Correctional Services. Through all this Don maintained his interest in the dramatic arts by writing and directing and acting in plays at his church. In 1985 Don and Carolyn and family picked up and moved to Kelowna BC. In 1990 Don began Hildebrandt Homes, an agency dedicated to improving the lives of developmentally disabled adults with behavioural issues. Hildebrandt Homes has been in operation for over 21 years, presently providing care and assistance for over 20 individuals in the Kelowna region. Don, throughout this time, has continued being involved in the Arts–heading up the drama department at his church as well as acting in a professional improve group. In 1994 Don became a board member of Creator’s Arts Centre beginning to teach and overseeing their new drama department . Don continues to be involved and active in CAC to this date and has recently re-joined our board of directors. He enjoys continuing to see his interest and love for the arts passed on through CAC and their programs.
