Your vision should focus on community involvement and arts consciousness that is inclusive and takes into account the wide diversity within the City of Burnaby. Being well-versed in artistic practice in varying disciplines is also a plus. Because you’ll be superviseing many different people and programs, your responsible, organized and dedicated personality, along with your top-notch communication expertise, will be incredibly valuable.
