Board of Directors opportunity (volunteer)

Description of Charity:

SkirtsAfire is Edmonton’s only multidisciplinary arts festival featuring and elevating the work of women in the arts. Each year we continue to expand our festival and grow as a team: we ask ourselves how we can do better, think bigger, and empower artists and audiences through the community we’ve created.
