The Community Arts Council of Vancouver was the first community arts council in North America - Through various transitions, we currently focus on "creating community through the arts" - encouraging and supporting arts-based community development. One of three priorities is community-engaged environmental arts, including connecting and supporting people adding art to their Green Streets gardens.
There's a saying that "Transition is not a spectator sport". It's true! Village Vancouver runs on people power, and engaging in activities and projects together helps us accomplish more. Which groups, networks, neighbourhood villages, or projects do you think you might be interested in getting involved with? And what knowledge, skills, resources or other assets can you bring to the mix? (Don't be bashful!)
We are connected with the Arts and Celebrations working group.
What would you like to see improved in Vancouver or in your community regarding sustainability or resiliency? Do you have an idea for a new Transition project or activity?
Making art together in a way that supports neighbourhood development and environmental sustainability.
