Registration is now live for boardLink Live, an event that matches young professionals with positions on the boards of directors of arts non-profits.
Words that too often are associated with young people who are part of our communities: apathetic, naive, irresponsible, inexperienced, uninvolved, unmotivated. Why get young people involved in community and nonprofit boards then? Why invest time and energy in developing young leaders? Why should young people spend time volunteering on boards?
Join artsScene Edmonton and Timeraiser Edmonton for a lively conversation featuring board members of all generations as we discuss the importance of developing the next generation of young board leaders.
This is a free event - appetizers and a cash bar will be available!
Support the arts without getting on stage. boardLink gives the every-day professional a chance to shine, behind the scenes and in the boardroom.
Meet arts organizations looking for young professionals just like you, gain board experience for the future, and help the arts thrive in Edmonton!
artsScene Edmonton and Latitude 53 are partnering to host Downtown Edmonton’s famous Thursday-evening Patio Party August 1st, 2013. Now found at street level, Latitude 53’s new patio will be open bringing together incredible contemporary art, a hip social scene out in the summer sun paired with great food from The Common and special drink features.
Latitude 53’s new space is an incredible environment that brings contemporary art to Edmonton in a whole new way—better facilities, accessibility, and visibility make the gallery truly Alberta’s leading centre for contemporary art and visual culture.
The Patio Party takes place from 5 pm – 9 pm at the new Latitude 53, 10242 106 Street. Allyson McIntyre will be the featured artist as a part of the Incubator Series. The DJ entertainment will be supplied by Kris Harvey and Chester Fields.
The official after party will be at The Common.
