OUR CONNECTIONS WELCOMES YOU
Exploring & celebrating the vibrant connections within the Downtown Eastside through the Arts
Cambium Arts Collective members, Amal Rana and Erv Newcombe, are thrilled to be working with the Carnegie Community Centre on the 2019 Artists in Communities Residency. cambiumarts.com
Join us as we explore and celebrate the vibrant connections across community, time, and place in the Downtown Eastside.
Centering low barrier art creation and inviting in playfulness and cultural exchange, Cambium creates a welcoming environment to nurture the creative impulse in diverse communities.
Together we'll locate the DTES community within its history while collectively envisioning its future through public workshops, community mapping, storytelling, sculpture, poetry, art making through everyday objects, and more.
Key questions we will explore: What are the daily celebrations and triumphs of the DTES? What's changing and why? What future do people envision for themselves/this place?
The Artists in Communities Program is based on principles of community cultural development and is funded by the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation in partnership with Community Centre Associations.
