Who is CAAN?

The CanAsian Arts Network (CAAN) was developed following two years of consultations with Canadian Asian artists from coast to coast to coast. It is governed by a representative council of Canadian Asian artists and organizations. CAAN is made possible through funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as support provided by various Canadian Asian arts organizations and artists.
