Sheenah Main – Administrator

“I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to work in such a beautiful building constantly surrounded by interesting exhibits and individuals. After a career in film and television production my job as administrator at the Sunshine Arts Council harkens back to an even earlier career in arts administration in both Vancouver and Toronto. I am one of the lucky ones who enjoys my time at work!”

Paul Clancy – Photographer

“Retired photographer and pet sitter if I have the time.”

Chloe Schatz – Summer Intern

“I am an English student at the University of Victoria, minoring in Professional Communications. I think that art and literature are so interconnected in allowing individuals to express themselves and ask thought-provoking questions about life and our identities, and I am eager to explore these connections by being surrounded by all of the interesting art here. Some of my personal interests include art, photography, and design, so I am looking forward to working in an environment that gives me valuable work and life experience but also focuses on things I am passionate about. As a lover of nature, I’m also really excited to be spending my summer in such a beautiful place and getting to learn more about the arts community on the Sunshine Coast.”

Meghan Flood – Summer Intern

“I’m delighted to spend this summer as one of SCAC’s summer students, supporting the wealth of artistic passion and creativity we have here on the Coast. Originally from Vancouver, with summers spent in Pender Harbour, I am currently a student at the University of Victoria. I study both Geography and Professional Communications, and will be in my fifth and final year this coming fall. My connection to art developed very much alongside my connection to the Sunshine Coast, from creating works of art with oyster shells found on the beach, to painting rocks found along the coast of Davis Bay, then through to a semester abroad in Utrecht, gallivanting through the hundreds of art galleries of the Netherlands and Europe. I am passionate about the politics of art and believe it is one of the most powerful forms of protest and self-expression, and am thrilled to be working in an environment where I get to be surrounded by both natural and artistic beauty.”
