Education & Projects Coordinator
Samantha (or Sam) is our Education and Projects Coordinator where she works with clients to support registration and delivery programs.
Sam has spent the last twelve years involved with Vancouver’s not-for-profit and arts communities. Specifically, in festivals with the Vancouver Folk Music Festival Society and the Vancouver Fringe Theatre Society.
She has been in many roles, from Artist Services Coordinator, Operations Manager, Managing Director, to Interim Executive Director. Sam adores working with teams and volunteers to build community and make amazing things happen! A couple skills Samantha brings to her role are a genuine love of problem-solving and providing support to individuals. She is especially passionate about community, art, leadership, and slow and inclusive fashion.
Outside work, Sam loves gardening and growing her own food (apparently this mostly takes place in containers on her fire escape – living that urban garden life!), swimming, knitting, and “generally anything that feels like potion making,” i.e., pickling, fermenting, and mixology. Ask Sam about Vantage Point’s workshops and labs, bursary opportunities, or to see pictures of your pets!
