Looking for a creative way to spend your Friday night? How about a nice mix of community-building discussion, art and local food. This week’s featured event takes place inMt.Pleasant(where the proposed Rize development has generated a lot of discussion) but will be of interest to anyone who’s keen on questions of neighbourhood change.
Here’s the details:
LIVE/WORK/PLAY in Mount Pleasant? So do we.
We want to ask you –
What is the character of your neighbourhood?
The proposed Rize development at Kingsway and Broadway has sparked some fiery questions over how we define and build community in Vancouver.
As the public re-zoning hearings continue to roll on at City Hall, Late Nite Art invites you to an evening of collaborative art making, food, music, and dialogue on the future of community in Mount Pleasant. This session is not a public debate, but rather an inquisitive process of expression around our neighbourhood and those who live and spend time there.
Late Nite Art is a facilitated workshop that brings together diverse groups to collaboratively explore thought-provoking ideas and issues through visual arts.
This is an open platform for all non-artists and artists alike to come together. You don’t need to be able to colour within the lines or draw portraits of fruit bowls – you just need your ears, eyes and hands to put your imagination on the page.
The $20 entrance fee includes the workshop and a tasty menu of select local products courtesy of Alexander McNaughton and your local farmer’s markets.
(Drinks will be available at cash bar)
Given that we can only accommodate a maximum of 22 people, we require your confirmation in advance to guarantee you a seat. Please register via http://lna12.eventbrite.com
We ask you to respect the time frame allotted for the event – 8.30PM – 11.30PM. This is an immersive experience that begins and ends with the same amount of people – no tardies and no early departees!
