Oct 11, 2022, Vancouver, BC – Capture Photography Festival is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Wang as the Festival’s new TD Assistant Curator of Engagement.
Sarah Wang studied international relations and art history before working in the arts and culture sector in
Vancouver. Although her academic background is in visual arts and culture, she has worked with a
multitude of performing, literary, and media arts organizations, as well as museums and galleries, across
Canada. She currently serves on the IBPOC Advisory Committee of the BC Museums Association, as well
as the Boards of C Magazine, the Roedde House Museum, and Telus Local Content.
As TD Assistant Curator of Engagement, Wang will have the opportunity to assist with researching,
developing, planning and executing public programs, events, and public-facing communications to offer
significant engagement with all aspects of the Festival. This position is made possible with the generous
support of Capture’s Presenting Sponsor, TD Bank Group, through its corporate citizenship platform The
Ready Commitment, which is helping to amplify diverse voices within cultural organizations.
Wang states, “Visual culture, literacy, and civic participation in the arts are critical to my work. Lens-based art is now more important than ever in our changing sociopolitical landscape, and I am very grateful to be able to work with the entire Capture team to bring these important works and conversations to our communities.”
Capture’s Executive Director, Emmy Lee Wall states, “Sarah’s intellectual curiosity, sensitivity to the
issues of our time and commitment to accessibility and inclusion will be great assets to Capture. I am
thrilled to welcome Sarah to our team.”
