we are building together once again
It is partly through the generosity of the community –through donations and grants - that AFV first built its facility in 1968 and continued to make capital improvements over the years. As a registered not-for-profit organisation, these donations provide additional support to the revenues generated from our activities.
Since 2010, successive boards, and countless staff and volunteers have given their time and talent to position AFV for the 21st century and ensure its ongoing success for the next 50 years. They shared in a common vision to create a new building that will take AFV to the next level of excellence and establish itself as a major educational, cultural and community centre in Vancouver. This new building project is the result of this perseverance despite many challenges encountered along the way.
The new building designed around green building practices and universal accessibility will have a performing space, an art gallery, artist studios, modern and high-tech classrooms and a modern media library (housing the largest collection of French language items in B.C). Stay tuned for more details.
