    Launched in June, the Vancouver Biannale 2018-2020 began its latest celebration of transformative art.

    The Vancouver Biennale celebrates art in public space. Each exhibition transforms the urban landscape into an Open Air Museum, creating globally inspired cultural experiences where people live, work, play, and transit, while becoming a catalyst for community engagement, learning, and social action.

    The Vancouver Biennale features internationally renowned and emerging contemporary artists that represent a diversity of cultural perspectives and artistic disciplines including sculpture, new media, performance works, music, and film.

  3. Exhibit

    Step into the "People Gotta Move" exhibition at the New West Museum and you'll be struck by the distinctly geometric and colourful landscape that runs from the Fraser River to Carnarvon Street. 

    The exhibit examines New West's transportation history, from roads and sidewalks to waterways and tracks. New West has long been a thoroughfare for regional movement. 

    A key piece of the exhibit is the recreation of New West's downtown area in Lego blocks, created by the Vancouver Lego Club.

    AniRevo 2018Aug 3, 2018 - Aug 5, 2018

    AniRevo (Anime Revolution) is the premier anime event in the lower mainland.  For event photographers, it's a choice venue to capture images of people doing CosPlay, and some of the costumes can get very elaborate. The event is an added bonus if you are a fan of Japanese animation (anime), with lots of artists and production representatives appearing.

    From the event organizers:

    Anime Revolution, widely known as AniRevo, is an anime convention located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Aiming to spread love and appreciation for anime and other aspects of Japanese culture, we celebrate and partake in cultural exchange through events where participants can share their passion for art, anime, manga, cosplay, dance, games and music through various activities, contests, exhibits, panels, and performances.

A chance to recognize how far we have come and reflect on where we need to go from here. Ask ten different people and you will receive ten different answers on what the Pride Parade means to them."
