Mission and Vision
ArtStarts in Schools provides innovative arts programs for young people, practical resources for teachers and artists, and leadership in advocacy for arts in education. ArtStarts Board Members look at their responsibility through three lenses: Strategic (setting priorities and monitoring performance), Generative (big picture questions and big picture thinking) and Fiduciary (stewardship of assets and accountability).
The ArtStarts Board operates as a governing body and concentrates on developing and monitoring goals and policies; focusing primarily on external factors and the future rather than internal operations and the past. We regularly assess our performance and effectiveness as a board and have an active board development plan. This approach ultimately supports ArtStarts to successfully deliver its mandate of promoting art and creativity among British Columbia's young people.
