Pandora’s Collective began in June 2002, with a suggestion by Sita Carboni to Bonnie Nish to begin a weekly writing group (The Kitsilano Writers).
Bonnie offered her kitchen table and Sita offered to bring friends. They met once a week and became so inspired that three members; Bonnie Nish, Sita Carboni and Heather Neale, began facilitating poetry workshops in schools and libraries. Pandora’s Collective was born.
While the group developed and changed, two constants remained; founders Bonnie Nish and Sita Carboni.
In 2003 it was time for them to evaluate. What should come next for Pandora's Collective? The conclusion - Pandora's Collective became a non-profit society on January 21, 2004.
