Arts Um­brella pres­i­dent and CEO Paul Larocque is head­ing a $ 27-mil­lion cap­i­tal cam­paign to fi­nance larger head­quar­ters in a 50,000-square-foot for­mer Emily Carr Uni­ver­sity of Art + De­sign build­ing on Van­cou­ver's Granville Is­land. The move, in late 2019, will al­low Arts Um­brella to in­crease the num­ber of stu­dents in donor-funded pro­grams by 10,500. The non-profit is also pi­lot­ing a dis­tance­learn­ing pro­gram to bring arts ed­u­ca­tion to more than 40 schools across North­ern Canada.
