Dawn plays a key role in all of Wonderbound’s fundraising efforts, and she is also deeply involved in all of Wonderbound’s community programs.

Garrett Ammon began his tenure as Artistic Director of Wonderbound in 2007. Under his direction, the organization has been transformed into an open laboratory for cross disciplinary exploration and creation.
