Programming Series

One of the benefits of being an artist-run centre is having talented artists on our Board. They bring enthusiasm for VIVO’s mission, a dedication to making us more successful, and an artist’s perspective to guide our plans and policies.

Matilda has been on VIVO’s Board since the summer of 2013 and has been active on our Development Committee and is currently Board Secretary.

Thank you Matilda for your commitment to VIVO and for making a difference in Vancouver’s cultural community.
