THE ESCAPE ARTISTS SOCIETY

The Escape Artists Society (TEAS)­officially registered in June 2005­ is an
emerging non-profit arts organization that aims to present and promote new
media, experimental music, visual, wearable and live art experiences in
unusual locations and environments.  We rely on government grants and
fund-raising events to finance our existence.

KEY GOALS

* To expose the public and arts community  to Œacts of live art Œas part of
their Œeveryday life¹ (local +national).
* To facilitate  inspiring educational experiences­encourage the general
public, artists and students to participate in events that  will enrich
their appreciation of art, media, technology and sound art.
* Support the research, creation, presentation, production, exhibition and
promotion of work by emerging, mid-career and established Canadian and
international artists.

WHO ARE WE

T.E.A.S came to be when the key organizers: Camille Baker and Victoria Singh
identified the need for a fresh approach  to presenting unusual creative
experiences to audiences in Vancouver. Despite the numerous organizations in
the community mandated to provide work of this nature: they  observe the
limitations and frustrations many artists experience in terms of support,
development and curatorial ingenuity. Both organizers have sound curatorial
and arts administrative experience coupled with an outstanding reputation
within the local and national arts community.

In addition, Baker and Singh are supported by a working board of
professional women, who are involved in fundraising and other organizational
activities, planning of events, and the management of the society. They are
Dr. Susan Kozel (president), Cindy Poremba (treasurer) and Valorie Pudsey
(secretary).
