Creative Arts Napier Inc. is a registered charity governed by a board of nine voting members:
Tania Wright, Chair

Angela Willaims, Hon. Treasurer
Erice Fairbrother, Secretary
We have six, part time members of staff, keeping the CAN open 7 days a week:
Christine Heaney, Manager
Yvette O’Neill, Bookings Coordinator
Lisa Feyen, Media Coordinator
Maree Goodchild, Administrator
Bob Stansbury, Weekend Assistant
Carol Goodier, Weekend Assistant
We also have a team of willing volunteers, whose contribution is invaluable.
Christine has a long association with Creative Napier, dating back to 1997 when she joined as a Board member. She trained in England in Graphic and Textile Design and was selected as a finalist for 5 successive years in The World of WearableArt. She continues to create her own art and combine it with her part time position as Community Arts Manager.
Christine hopes having an artist at the helm of Creative Napier will make our organisation more identity friendly.
