I want to thank the many exceptional people who made the WORK of ART 2019 a great success! First, I thank the 50+ artists and art groups who attended this conference. Your feedback forms indicate that we hit the key objective which was to assist artists in the making of a viable career from their artistic endeavours.We offer our most sincere thanks to the extraordinary presenters: Todd Ayotte, Andrea Rasmussen, Grant T. Smith, JJ Lee, Dean Paul Gibson, Jennifer Clark and Katina Giesbretch . Together these professionals communicated the importance of the ‘business of art’ with ‘branding’ identified as a must-do strategic move.The event’s success is largely do in part to our ACS TEAM and dedicated volunteers. Max, James, Slyvia, Paul, Jenny, Ryan, Lyn, Michelle, Geoff, Ken and Anna. From food to photography – hosting to moderating …these people made this event happen.We extend our greatest thanks to the Honourable Harry Bains, Minister of Labour for his Closing keynote address (see video on this page) and Surrey’s own Culture Manager Liane Davison for her inspiring Opening keynote presentation (click button to read her address) – thank you both for representing BC and the City and showing Surrey artists that they matter.
