Experience in education, contemporary art and community engagement will be what the new director of public programs, Derrick Chang, will bring to the Two Rivers Gallery.
“Two Rivers Gallery is thrilled to welcome Derrick to our team,” Sara Knelman, executive director said. “He brings with him a deep commitment to engaging communities and challenging perspectives through contemporary art. We can’t wait to introduce him to our community beginning July 5.”
Chang is a curator, writer and facilitator who began his work supporting the arts and focusing on cultural development in 2012.
He holds a masters of art history with a focus on critical and curatorial studies from UBC and a bachelors in art history and a bachelor of education from Queen’s University.
He is dedicated to supporting community initiatives and artistic voices through projects, research and publication.
“I am looking forward to finding out what makes Prince George life and culture unique and special,” Chang said. “Public programs play a vital role in bringing to life the value that the experience of art plays both inside and outside the gallery walls. In my role at the gallery, I hope to contribute to creating positive opportunities for the public to engage with the transformative potential that art has to change our understanding of the world around us.”
