My project took place in the meeting room of the Guildford library. From June 9, 2018 to June 30, 2018 every Saturday.
'Free Reiki Morning' event was held on October 14, 2018 with the help of Small Neighborhood Grant in Westend. Reiki is a Japanese self care practice to promote a sense of deep calm and tranquility. Posters were posted along the Davie and Denman Street, in the shops and and also at coffee shops and well-being related businesses, as well as Gordon Neighborhood House and WorkBC City Center locations. 5 Westend residents attended the event, and were given a free introduction about Reiki and its origin. Afterwards a Reiki experience through guided meditation was given.
A pop-up umbrella fashion show held on November 17, 2018 at Jim Deva Plaza in Vancouver's West End.
A runway show of custom umbrella designs with a jury panel and lots of fun. Created by the West End community.
"Eating & Meeting Party" was our NSG project with the intention of connecting residents of the building through a party, eating delicious food, and exchanging ideas about our building and our community.
I have lived in my building for about seven years and have met many of the residents briefly, just saying Hi and Bye. This project was a perfect ground for many of us to have the time and opportunity to get to know each other. The residents were coming from different backgrounds so we could celebrate diversity and strengthens the sense of belonging.
