The 2012 Festival has wrapped up...
Thanks, everyone, for a fantastic festival! We're all tired and glowy, and dealing with tidy-up, but we'll be posting photos, updates, and videos soon.
Check back in a few days for more, thanks.
In the meantime, flap on over to Corvus Magazine to check out some new work!
Free Membership available to Arts Advocacy BC
The excellent organization Arts Advocacy BC (AABC) is offering FREE introductory memberships to for a limited time. AABC has invited Poetry Gabriola Members to sign up. If you are interested in arts advocacy in BC, this is a great organization to join.
AABC, which is less than a year old, is the only pan-BC organization focused solely on advocacy and serving both artist and non-artist members. We need an organization like that. The Alliance for Arts in Vancouver is great, but it mainly serves arts orgs/artists, is focused primarily on Vancouver, and does not concentrate solely on advocacy. AABC is a complementary organization, so you can belong to both. AABC is based on the model of a Washington State org. It already has board members from far-reaching areas of the province and it has the potential to gather a geographically diverse list of members from all corners of BC. It's outspoken yet professional.
This year AABC is temporarily willing to give people free introductory memberships to get the ball rolling.Poetry Gabirola is a friend of AABC and would like to help it expand further throughout BC.
