Avenue for the Arts (AVA) is a non-profit visual arts group, founded in 1983 in the Grandview-Woodlands community of Vancouver, BC. AVA members meet monthly to share information and techniques, discuss local art issues and organize events. AVA has facilitated free public art workshops, cultural development studies, writing and art contests, children’s programs, art consultation, and produced many group art exhibitions.

AVA is comprised of artists with varying levels of experience working in many different mediums. This lends itself to seasoned artists mentoring emerging artists, and many different strengths and talents being contributed to group projects. AVA has a long history of success organizing and installing multi-artist interdisciplinary shows, evident in it’s 3 year tenure as the resident visual arts company for the Vancouver East Cultural Centre (1998 through 2000). There AVA created, curated and installed art exhibitions every six weeks. These were enjoyed by an estimated 40,000 people each year.

Since 1983 Avenue for the Arts has been a vibrant part of the local arts community, contributing unique creative vision, strong organizational capabilities, a team of diverse, talented members and an expansive network of collaborating artists.
