Co-designed and delivered through an innovative partnership between the Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) and the John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland (JHS), our Artist in Residence program strives to build an inclusive community using an arts-based approach. The Artist in Residence program is a person-centered initiative open to all community members that uses the process of making art as a powerful tool for creative self expression, relationship building, compassion, and empathy. Delivered weekly at the JHS Vancouver Community Services Office (VCSO), our residing artist and CACV Program Manager Johnny Trinh uses a diverse range of arts-based mediums to engage participants and foster an inclusive, safe, and encouraging environment for all involved.
