On behalf of the entire CACV Board and Executive Director, Kristin Cheung, we are thrilled to announce Shannon Goodman as our new Program Manager.
Shannon (she/hers) is a graduate of the University of Ottawa with experience working in arts and non-profits. Born and raised in both Prince Edward County and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, she now lives and works on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, also known as Vancouver.
She has a background in printmaking and has previously worked at Historica Canada, where her work focused on arts and writing opportunities for Indigenous youth and producing educational resources. Shannon is passionate about building long lasting relationships with Indigenous communities and working alongside underrepresented groups to create programming that provides a welcoming and creative environment for all to thrive.
We are very excited to have Shannon join the Community Arts Council of Vancouver team and look forward to her leadership and development of current and future CACV festivals and community arts programs including the up-coming Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival and Reframing Relations workshops.
Join us in welcoming Shannon Goodman to CACV!
