Art reflects life in the Downtown Eastside

Wednesday March 11th, 2015

As I listened to an Elections B.C. official describe the voting process for the forthcoming plebiscite a single thought came to mind: I hope we never have to go through this again. What a colossal disaster this is turning out to be. Thanks, Christy.

As the ballots are about to be mailed out, I have decided to again leave town. This time I am off to Paris and Morocco in search of more planning ideas to share at a forthcoming lecture entitled 12 Great Ideas for Vancouver from Around the World. It will be presented at SFU Harbour centre on April 1.

But before I leave, I am participating in an art unveiling and panel discussion at 6 p.m. tonight (March 11) at Vancouver Community College’s downtown campus. It is organized by the Vancouver Biennale, a non-profit charitable organization that celebrates art in public spaces. It brings to Vancouver the works by internationally renowned and emerging contemporary artists that most people actually like.
