The Art from the Heart Board of Directors is a working board, volunteering their time and skills to provide a cohesive and active administration of organizational goals. The board meets once a month for Executive and Committee reports, and members are expected to perform tasks in their area of responsibility to support the Programming and Events of the Organization.

Board member position responsibilities are described below. All roles require a two-year commitment. Members may elect to continue in their current role, or move into a different position after their two-year term is completed.

If you are interested in volunteering your skills and experience, and able to commit some time, energy and enthusiasm toward helping fulfill an important community mandate, please download the Application, and send it through e-mail or mail to 545 Broadway Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3C 0W1
