The John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland (JHSLM) and the Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV)
The JHSLM and CACV artist in residence project provides the opportunity for a resident artist to live in, and contribute to, our Fraser Street apartments building in Vancouver – a community committed to further embracing the notion of strengthening lives through art. The project allows JHSLM service users, residents, staff and local community members to find new and creative ways to share stories. Through meaningful connection, ongoing dialogue, and workshops that foster an environment of story gathering and story telling, we hope to highlight the importance of relationships in our journey and produce telling and inspirational pieces.
