A wonderful place and great creative people.
Contractor (Former Employee) –  consulting27 February 2018
An anazing place to work with exceptionally talented
creative people many of whom are underpaid for the immense amount of work and dedication they bring to this unique arts family.

Upper tier executive management continues to be somewhat disconnected from current market realities. The dream of the delayed new megagallery may now need modification after so much time has passed since inception and Sept.2015 public launch with Swiss starchitects.. The lack of updates, excitement and public enthusiasm in the absence of funding has negatively impacted a fluid political landscape in Ottawa, Victoria and now City Hall..

The replacement CDO needs definitively to be much more mature and creative. Fully established (preferably) in the Pacific coast art scene unlike the prior recent brief incumbent who brought only a well meaning but somewhat grey suit / uninspired artoccrat approach from cerebral Toronto that was a total mismatch..and wasted valuable time.

The hour is late and the need for strategic reorientation not yet fully acknowledged top of house. The board needs to realign with both potential now vacillating political and critical matching follow on private support.

I wish this extraordinary institution nothing but excellence in its next phase evolution - but it needs i realign with a changed marketplace and cut its cloth..

I had the opportunity to Volunteer in a cultural atmosphere that continuously indulged me in my passions for art. The staff were inviting and taught me how to run a successful gallery. The team that I got to observe intensely included me in their positions; therefore instilled the fascination to continue to pursue my admiration for the art world.

Tour guide (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC6 June 2015
I work as a tour guide and I have to say I really enjoy my work there. Co-workers are friendly, but remember that this is a big organization so you have to be careful about all the protocols.
