Jamie M. Enser

Executive Director
Center for the Arts

Jamie M. Enser is the Executive Director of the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts (CFA), a multidisciplinary arts venue within a premier public research university that has welcomed nearly 4 million people through its doors since 1994. Enser brings unique experiences to the role, with expertise in live events, touring performances, sports, media, and television network production. Prio to this,  Jamie led the transformation of the CFA’s production operation into the UB Production Group (UBPG), a professional resource dedicated to supporting University-wide technical and video production, and serving as a bridge between the academic and professional realms. As the Director of Production Operations at the CFA for more than fifteen years prior, Enser supervised the operation of a diverse variety of over 8,000 performances, events, and productions. This includes national touring music artists and dance companies, festivals and concert series, distinguished speakers and comedians, family and theatrical shows and a full array of university and community events. 

Before UB, Enser worked in television production management at several networks including, Nickelodeon, MTV, CNN and others in Los Angeles, Orlando and Atlanta. She is the recipient of a state Emmy® and multiple national Telly awards.

Bronwyn Keenan

Director
Arts Collaboratory

Bronwyn Keenan has been involved in the arts for more than 25 years. After starting out at the front counter of Christie's, she went on to open and manage her own namesake gallery for a decade. During those years, Keenan consulted with and developed experiential marketing campaigns for Adidas, Rockstar Games, Chanel, Edun and Greenpeace. She went on to direct events and special projects at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she initiated and produced site-specific programs and collaborations with artists like Animal Collective and Danny Perez; MGMT and Maurizio Cattelan; and Katherine Bernhardt and Grandmaster Flash. In tandem with her work in museums, Keenan is also active in Downtown for Democracy, a progressive organization that collaborates across the disciplines and aims to be a voice for creative people across the country.
