North Shore Art Crawl – March 7 & 8, 2020
TGIF Day - Time for Music!
Like most people, I have a deep yearning for community and connection. I run the North Van trails regularly, go to yoga classes at the Delbrook Community Recreation Centre, hike and stay healthy. But I am also cognizant of my mental health and well-being. The feeling that I belong to my neighbourhood is important to me. I love the Live and Local Concert Series, because not only do I get to lose myself in music, I get to belong.
Canada Day - July 1st
What Canada means to me
My family immigrated to Canada when I was eight years old, which makes me a first generation Canadian. I was very proud the day my family and I were sworn in as Canadians. I remember looking around the ceremonial hall at the other new Canadians and marveling at the diversity of races and cultures. I knew then that I was in a safe and welcoming place. Today, almost four decades later, I cannot imagine calling anywhere else my home.

Check out Play, Pie, Pint!
The play-pie-pint movement started in 2004 in Glasgow, Scotland, where the concept of introducing new audiences to theatre and community arts during non-peak times took off. Today, shows are performed all over the world. Our local version offers an hourlong one-act show, followed by an old-school, pub-like lunch in the lobby.

The women’s movement has come a long way in Canada. It’s only been one hundred years since Canadian women were given the right to vote in 1918.
