Want to be a part of Vancouver’s largest visual arts events of the year? 

Become a Development Committee Member and help produce the CREATE! Festival, the Eastside Culture Crawl or the Eastside Arts District!

The Development (Dev) Committee plays an essential role in helping the EAS realize its vision of transforming the community through the arts. Through fundraising, events, sponsorship, donorship, and communications, we raise the funds and resources needed to support meaningful arts and cultural programming in the Vancouver Eastside.

The Dev Committee is comprised of EAS board members, members of the community, a staff member and the Managing Director.

Our volunteers are crucial to the operation of our organization. We are pleased to offer an in-person CREATE! Festival and Culture Crawl experience as we continue to connect artists, craftspeople, and designers with the community. Now in its 28th year, the Eastside Culture Crawl offers unparalleled, intimate access for artists and the community to connect through open studio weekends, exhibits, workshops & demos, and artists talks. The CREATE! Festival offers the community opportunities to learn how to create artwork of their own in accessible and affordable outdoor and indoor art workshops in the summer.
