Beth Schellenberg is a creative professional who brings with her a proficiency with prose and an elegant approach to employing language in her role as Proposal Writer. She has a wealth of experience, having been previously engaged to develop written deliverables for a variety of cultural and arts-related opportunities within Winnipeg, Northern Canada, and internationally.

She holds a Bachelors in Contemporary Art and Critical Theory (Hons) and a Masters in Cultural Studies and Curatorial Practices from the University of Winnipeg, and was a Queen Elizabeth II Scholar in the United Kingdom in 2018. Over the last few years, her critical and creative writing have been published in several contemporary publications both in print and online. All-in-all, Beth's knowledge, approach, and experience make her an integral part of the Marketing and Communications team at Republic Architecture.

Not-so-Guilty Pleasures

When asked what her guilty pleasure is, Beth writes, "I can't say I feel truly guilty about this particular pleasure, but I probably should: spending upwards of an hour in a scorching bath while 'reading' the latest Vogue, drinking wine, and listening to podcasts about celebrities."

Catwoman

Beth has two black cats that she is "pretty sure were born on Halloween at 11:11. They are bewitchingly adorable, and despite their antics (climbing curtains, eating plants, hiding fake mice, wine corks, and bits of string in my shoes) I am very taken with them".

Breaking Boundaries

Beth would like to see Winnipeg evolve into "a city with less boundaries (opening Portage and Main would be a great start...). Also more bike lanes."
