Our roots

Nathalie Kleinschmit founded Prairie Mix to share the talent and spirit of Western Canadian artists she loves with industry partners and audiences in Canada and beyond.

She brings to the table 25 years of business consulting and training experience in multinational organizations in Europe and the Middle East. After receiving her MBA in Change & Innovation and focusing her MBA thesis on strategic planning for arts and cultural groups, she decided to trade in her business suit for a pair of jeans and work with artists full time. Since November 2015, she has been the Acting Executive Director of the 100 NONS, a French music organization in Manitoba. She works closely with other cultural organizations in Western Canada to deliver training for artists and promote their work. 

Kara Swayze hit the ground running when she joined Prairie Mix in September 2016, helping artists maneuver the wonderful world of showcases. With a background in theatre and film, Kara offers a performer friendly perspective to Prairie Mix and it's artists.
