My name is Stephen, I became the Executive Director of The Arts Council of New Westminster in March of 2015. Just before I arrived, a new board was elected at our AGM and they had all kinds of fresh new ideas. It’s my job to make them happen. It’s got to be one of the best jobs in the city!
What’s an Arts Council? That’s usually the first question people ask when I tell them what I do. The answer I’ve been telling people lately is “we’re a coalition of artists and arts supporters, from the Performing arts to the Literary arts and the Visual arts.” Someday I hope we can add the Culinary Arts and even Martial Arts.
