ArtStarts postpones Showcase until February 2011

For many years, ArtStarts has brought together artists and school district delegates from around BC for our exciting Spring Showcase. The event helps arts programmers select from a diverse range of professional arts groups when booking performances for young audiences in their communities. However, after careful consideration, ArtStarts has decided to postpone our April 2010 Showcase until February 2011.

Howard Jang, director of Arts Club Theatre Company, stopped by this afternoon to present a cheque to ArtStarts on behalf of the TELUS Vancouver Community Board, of which he is a member. The Board has generously offered to renew its sponsorship of the ArtStarts on Saturdays Series. This means we will be continuing to offer free, artist-led workshops to families & kids in the downtown Vancouver area next year!
