arts awards
The 2014 Mayor’s Arts Awards will be presented by Mayor Gregor Robertson at a 6:30 p.m. ceremony on Tuesday, October 7 at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre.

The City of Vancouver’s Mayor’s Arts Awards recognize established and emerging artists in a wide array of disciplines that make up our creative sector – from literary to culinary arts, and visual to performing arts, as well as four unique awards for support of the arts by individuals and businesses and a special award for Lifetime Achievement. Honourees are chosen each year through a juried process, with nominations from the community, for having made a significant contribution to their respective disciplines, and for showing leadership, innovation and support for Vancouver’s cultural community over the course of their careers. Each arts category Honouree selects an Emerging Artist in their discipline, who represents the promise of the next generation.

We are pleased to announce that Julie McIntyre will be the recipient of the Arts Board Member of the Year Award for her work with CARFAC BC.
