Dirk Koning, 1957-2005

The Community Media Center remembers our Executive Director, founder and friend, Dirk Koning. His gentle spirit and vision created an environment that made it a joy to come to work. Every day we aspire to be the kind of innovative, mission-oriented center that matches the picture that Dirk painted. We will carry on that mission in his memory.

A two-phase project honoring Dirk is in progress at Wealthy Theatre. The Koning Micro-Cinema contains a bell memorial to his memory with over 150 contributors. A contemplative garden space and new entry way to the Micro-Cinema from the walkway are also in the works, with construction anticipated in 2008.
