The Artspring Board of Directors are often engaged in a variety of community endeavours. In order for you to get to know them better, a short paragraph about each of them appears monthly. Today, we introduce Elly Silverman.
Elly is new to this board, but not new to participating in causes that matter to her. She has been a feminist activist and a professor at the University of Calgary, and continues to express her passion for making change and enhancing communities as a hospice volunteer, as a Director on the local board of Options for Sexual Health, which runs The Clinic, as well as on the provincial OPT board. She has a lifelong commitment to women’s reproductive choices. She also volunteers at the farm at Salt Spring Seeds, “thinking globally, acting locally.” Elly swims year round in the ocean with the Salt Spring Seals (and Carole Eyles, whom you met last month). The Artspring Board, and its galleries and performance spaces, enhance her love of the Pacific Northwest aesthetic.
