Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV)
Board of Directors & Committee Recruitment – Spring 2019
Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) was the first arts council in North America. Since its beginning in 1946, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver has been a contributor to shaping the cultural life of Vancouver. CACV is an independent non-profit charitable organization, unaffiliated with any government department.
Our vision is of a socially-engaged, inclusive, and vibrant city alive with community arts.
Community arts is made by, with, for, and because of people sharing a sense of community, with the support of professional artists.
We currently advance our vision across Vancouver through community arts programs that address social exclusion and accessibility of creative opportunities, Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships, and sustainability in the arts sector. CACV programs include: Reframing Relations, Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival, Community Arts Network – GATHER, and Artist in Residence currently partnering with John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland.
CACV has recently completed a new 3-year strategic plan, including a comprehensive capacity enhancement plan
CACV is seeking a limited number of new volunteers to serve on key committees and our Board of Directors. We are committed to improving accessibility, equity, and inclusion throughout our organization, and people of all backgrounds are encouraged to consider this opportunity to serve as creative citizens.
