Celebrating our 25th Anniversary

ARIIVA’s second year arrives with a bang

In our 25th year, we are celebrating not only our accomplishments and many successes, but also our innovative ideas and creative approach to responding to the needs of the arts sector in our province and beyond. The future is bright and we’re excited about what the next 25 years will bring.

We launched A Really Interesting Internship in Visual Arts (ARIIVA) – a unique artist development program – only a year ago with the intent to provide employment opportunities for recent visual arts graduates in their selected field. ARIIVA proved to be a resounding success.

Bravo: new board members!
