City seeks volunteers to serve on Culture, Arts and Heritage Commission

April 18, 2024

The City of Vancouver is seeking applicants to fill one vacancy on its Culture, Arts and Heritage Commission. Applications must be submitted by May 21.

The City’s Culture, Arts and Heritage Commission is a nine-member volunteer group responsible for facilitating the development and promotion of a thriving cultural, art and heritage environment that reflects the Vancouver community. This is accomplished through community-informed programs, ownership of buildings and public art, and a commitment to community partnerships.

Commissioners meet from noon to 2 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month, with meetings currently being held as hybrid. This recruitment is for a mid-term appointment, with a term beginning July 1, 2024 and ending Dec. 31, 2026. Per Vancouver City Council policy, all incumbents who wish to be considered for reappointment to their positions will be interviewed along with any other qualifying applicants. All applicants must be available to participate in a virtual interview with members of the Vancouver City Council on a date to be determined.
