Centre A Announces a Change in Leadership 

The Centre A Board of Directors would like to share the news of the departure of Henry Heng Lu as the Executive Director and Curator of Centre A as of December 31, 2022, as he sets out to pursue personal projects. Henry, who first joined the Centre A team in 2019, has developed and initiated many exciting exhibitions, programs, and institutional collaborations over the years for Centre A; special initiatives include: the Arts Writing Mentorship Program, the Holiday Art Market, the Counter-Anti-Asian-Racism Digital Initiative (CAARDI), and the Centre A Speaker Series. Henry has also steered the organization through the difficult years of the global pandemic, stabilized its financial position, and has developed robust online programming to reach broader audiences. We are thankful for everything that he has done to support Centre A, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

We are also pleased to announce the promotion of Ellie Chung, our Gallery Manager, to the position of Interim Director. In the coming months, the Centre A Board of Directors and staff will be reviewing the organization’s operational and programming needs to best inform the next phase of staff recruitment.

Accessibility: The gallery is wheelchair and walker accessible. If you have specific accessibility needs, please contact us at (604) 683-8326 or [email protected].

Centre A is situated on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. We honour, respect, and give thanks to our hosts.
