Lindsay Van Lier
Lover of people, nature, adventures, and the arts; student of life. Musician in a previous life. Teacher and (nervous) beekeeper in this one. Mother of 2 beautifully artistic humans. School participation is what opened my eyes to CB Nuit. I love that students get an opportunity to create for the community project that CB Nuit presents. I have enjoyed bringing my own kids to participate in CB Nuit over the years (they are allowed to miss bed time for that!) I'm very excited to be a part of this.

Director of Marketing and Communications
Drew Pardy, Visual Artist, Admin and Communications Coordinator St. Michael’s Printshop
My practice explores the importance of taking care — of our human connections, of the places we occupy, and of the material objects we encounter. This exploration of relationships is often rooted in community and site-specific histories, where roaming, rambling, crafting, and collaborating are all a part of the creation of positive social spaces. Everything about CBNuit embodies the community-engaged and friendship as method way of working that I love. It's been an absolute pleasure being involved over the past few years!

Professionally, she spends her days surrounded by numbers and is happy to be able to support CB Nuit by volunteering time as Treasurer. In her off time, she is usually found adventuring in the fresh air with her little girl, hiking up mountains or making paper in her backyard studio.
