Collette Murray is a Toronto-born dance educator, performer and cultural arts programmer. She is a dedicated dance artist whose critical and creative work span over 25 years in Ontario. Her vision evolved to use leadership and innovative ways to highlight the contributions and social significance of African diasporic knowledge.
Her community arts engagement is in a socially-engaged way and through social entrepreneurship. She later developed Miss Coco Murray, a mobile, dance education business, offering cultural arts services rooted from the African and Caribbean diaspora, that are inaccessible across sectors. She is the Artistic Director of Coco Collective, an intergenerational and multidisciplinary arts team of musicians and artists where she designs and implements innovative, culturally relevant programs for children, youth and adults.
