volunteer opportunity: seeking a new board member

eartHand Gleaners Society turns two next month!

The eartHand Gleaners Society is inviting applications for a position on our Board of Directors. Our non-profit, Vancouver-based society is an arts-based organization that fosters ecological diversity and community. We focus on programming primarily in the neighbourhoods of Strathcona, Downtown Eastside and Mount Pleasant.

Briefly, our intention is to:

  • Develop environmental education by fostering hand-based skill development through the creative arts;
  • Pursue creative ways of reducing green waste through up-purposing of waste stream materials and invasive plants as raw materials for creative projects; and
  • Create opportunities for multi-cultural cross-discipline exchanges among community members and professionals in the fields of education, sciences, and the arts.

The board meets quarterly and board members are encouraged to take a direct, participatory interest in the society’s activities and programs.  Applications are encouraged from individuals with an interest in art, community, education and environmental awareness. Applications are strongly encouraged from individuals with a background in advertising, marketing and social media.

If you are interested in participating in how we shape the future of this young organization we would love to hear from you!

Please email your expression of interest to earthandgleaners(at)gmail.com, with a Curriculum Vitae including any relevant experience and two references (state if personal or professional) by March 30.

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for a short interview in early April.
