Aili McGill

Executive Director

Nickel Plate Arts


I am the director for this new, wonderful arts organization that is working to promote arts and cultural efforts in six communities in Central Indiana. I collaborate with artists, community members, and other key constituents to ensure that there are always multiple, low-barrier ways to engage with the arts in these six towns! Specialties: I specialize in organizational leadership and change management. In regards to my Museum Studies degree, I have extensive expertise in staff management, museum theater and 1st-person historical interpretation, as well as conducting and applying guest research to new and existing experiences. I also have a strong background in improvisational theater and organic gardening. Finally, I am an experienced illustrator and am currently working on an exciting project that I plan to launch in late 2016 or early 2017.
