VANCOUVER ART COMMUNITY

ART EVENTS COMPANY

Vancouver Art Community is a company I started with a fellow artist. The company focuses on creating opportunities for connection and collaboration among creative individuals in Vancouver. As a co-founder of this brand, I wore many hats and was in charge of design, art direction, marketing and event planning. During my time with the company, we hosted over 100 art shows and activations with over 300 artists and over 10,000 attendees.
