Congratulations to Jan Derbyshire and sylvi macCormac, recently chosen as 2 of 12 women artists in the Remarkable Women: Honouring Women From Our Vancouver Communities poster series for 2012. Twelve posters of Remarkable Women from Vancouver will be produced as a unique way to remember, acknowledge, and honour women in our communities whose accomplishments highlight the important role women play in our daily lives. The posters will be available in January 2012. Those selected as Remarkable Women will be acknowledged at a reception to be held in conjunction with International Women’s Day on March 8, 2012.
Meanwhile, a BIG congratulations to Jan – a performer, playwright and comedian – and sylvi – a musician, composer, and soundscape artist – who have BOTH been proudly presented by Kickstart!
We know how to spot ‘em, and apparently so does the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, sponsors of the award.
