For Immediate Release
November 21st, 2023
VANL-CARFAC is proud to launch our new Outreach and Recruitment Campaign, generously funded by the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund.
This support has allowed VANL-CARFAC to hire a new staff position to oversee and implement a membership and board recruitment campaign. The Recruitment Coordinator will conduct research through community consultation and various outreach initiatives in order to improve accessibility of our services and programs, and grow our membership across Newfoundland and Labrador. As an artist-led service group this will allow us to increase our organisational capacity, enhance our board recruitment and retention strategies, and mitigate the challenges in community engagement caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
VANL-CARFAC is happy to announce that Daniel Rumbolt has been hired as the new Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator. Daniel is a visual artist with extensive experience within the provincial arts community, having developed public programming and supports for artists through his work at Eastern Edge Artist-run Centre, as well as serving on the VANL-CARFAC board from 2016-2021. He is committed to engaging with artists across Newfoundland and Labrador, and will work to increase VANL-CARFAC’s reach to better serve our members.
“We’re very grateful to the CSRF for this support,” said David Andrews, VANL-CARFAC’s Executive Director. “VANL works with artists on an almost daily basis and being able to increase our capacity in this way is going to be invaluable. We can’t wait to get started.”
The VANL-CARFAC Team is eager to engage with the provincial arts community in new and invigorating ways.
