Hamilton Community Centre

The Richmond Art+Culture Expo was an initiative developed to celebrate art and culture in the Richmond community! Our first annual event on November 19th, 2017, took place at Hamilton Community Centre from 12 till 3 PM. Richmond artists showcased their unique skills and had the opportunity to share their talents with their neighbours. The event was a great platform for community members to create, connect, and collaborate.

Community Member's Home

We have had a great time celebrating diverse cultures through cooking sessions which ranged from sushi to shortbread. We held the cooking sessions at a community member's home. We extended the invitation to participate through connections in the Brighouse neighbourhood. At each session, we had a "leader" who brought the necessary ingredients and taught us how to make different food. While the leader ensured the basics were there, participants were quick to bring additional food which helped us stretch the budget.

The weather could not have been more perfect. Clear blue skies, crisp autumn temperatures and colourful leaves graced the Fall Fest venue in Steveston.

For two months, 6 – 10 key volunteers of all ages met regularly to plan and create fun activities for children. They included a cup cake walk, an angel photo shoot, a fish pond, face painting, sidewalk chalk drawing, button making, hat making, a corn hole game, bubble blowing, giant jengo and a good old fashioned fire pit with marshmellows.

6th Ave and Commercial Drive

Neighbours of all ages and all walks of life came together for a block party last June. We were able to close down the street to provide a quiet and relaxing space. Grant money was used to provide a simple meal for all, as well as purchase materials towards making planter boxes. We had the Vancouver Tool Library come to our event to promote its fabulous community minded organization, as well as lend a hand in helping kids, teens and adults make planter boxes. People from our street organized fun games like cake walk, volleyball, guessing games, relay races etc....
