Kristin Cheung, GCLP 2017
Kristin Cheung was a participant in the 2017 edition of the Global Cultural Leadership Programme.
Kristin Cheung is an arts administrator and fundraiser with 10+ years of experience working in arts and non-profit organizations in Vancouver Canada. She is passionate about working with and supporting the work for under-represented communities and has volunteered and fundraised for numerous culturally diverse non-profits in Vancouver and Edmonton. In 2016, she co-founded ‘The Future is you and me’, a free community mentorship program for young women of colour in the arts. The intersectional feminist program aims to build a future with strong, diverse women in leadership positions, reflective of the current cultural landscape. Kristin has a Masters in Arts Administration & Cultural Policy from Goldsmiths University of London and spends her free time as a Board member of Centre A (Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art) in Chinatown and Room magazine (West Coast Feminist Literary Magazine Society).
“I was able to connect with so many cultural workers from across the globe. I’ve discovered so many inspiring projects from curators and producers I would not have been able to connect with if it were not for GCLP. It’s led me pursue a new path for my career — to use my current skills and experience and apply them on a more international scene.”
In order to introduce themselves and their organizations, the participants prepared a poster.
