Hailey is an Afro-Indigenous (Red River Métis) artist and theatre designer. Originally from Inuvik, NWT (on Inuvialuit and Gwich’in land), he trained at the National Theatre School of Canada in production design and technical arts. Lighting, video, watercolour, and digital artwork are his preferred media for storytelling. His primary passion is to support the development of Indigenous stories in Canada. He has been lucky enough to be involved with projects such as Hush by Sylvia Cloutier (2020, NTS), Lovesong for the Thunderbirds by Summer Bralette (2021, Grand Theatre), The Herd by Kenneth Williams (2022, Citadel/Tarragon), Echoes of the Homesick Heart by Laura Michel (2022, WCT), Feather Gardens by Jimmy Blais (2022, Hudson Village Theatre), and Bentboy by Herbie Barnes (2022, YPT).
