The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is proud to announce its Youth Ambassador for the 2019-20 fiscal year, Janay Rowland.
Executive Director Jeff Erbach anticipates that Janay will be involved in a number of Gallery initiatives throughout the year. “Janay is a very bright and articulate person, with a real passion for a wide variety of artistic pursuits. She’s going to really stand out as a spokesperson for our exhibitions and public programs this year.”
Janay is also excited about participating, “Being the Ambassador is a great opportunity that I am so excited to take on. Throughout the year I hope to deepen my understanding of art and artists while being active in my community. What better way to do that than be the Ambassador for one of Grande Prairie’s most essential community centres, the Art Gallery?”
Janay is a 14 year old student of Isabell Campbell school. She was the winner of the Prairie Mall’s ‘Be the Voice’ project as part of the ‘Be You’ program and in 2018 was the recipient of the ‘Striving for Excellence’ Award from the Education Foundation. Janay is interested in creative writing, visual and performing arts.
The Youth Ambassador program is proudly supported by the Prairie Mall.
