2013 Project: Urban Aboriginal Art Gallery

JDQ and ASQ Vancouver help local Aboriginal Artists

As one of last year’s winners of the Social Enterprise Heroes event, the Urban Aboriginal Fair Trade Gallery was the recipient of consulting assistance from JDQ and ASQ Vancouver. Over the course of a few months, team members from both sides came together to offer their knowledge and expertise to assist the gallery with some of their processes.

The project was recently concluded and the team was successfully able to help them in some key areas:

  • Project Charter
  • Volunteer Plan & Guide
  • B2B Plan and Presentations
  • Story Telling Procedures and Presentations,
  • Draft Operational SOP’s, Forms and Measurables
  • Art Gallery Manager Job Description

Team members included Jon Morris from JDQ, David Muncaster from ASQ, Erik Steketee from Process Pros, Robin Woolmer and Mike St. Yves. Their liaison from the gallery was David Eddy.

The Gallery provides an essential system for Aboriginal artists to be able to sell and create their artwork in a fair-trade environment. ASQ Vancouver was proud to be a part of this project and is looking forward to the next one with the Edible Garden Project.
