PAL Theatre

Every Monday evening we have a drop-in table tennis event where anyone can come and learn to play table tennis. During the rest of the week we have various people playing their own organized games.

As the theatre is used quite often in the wider community, people are aware that a table tennis table and equipment is available so it has made an appearance at parties hosted in the theatre, and recreational time during event set up and events.

Dockside - Coal Harbour

We connected neighbors while sharing the knowledge of Vancouver history and culture. Curiosities of Coal harbor and other neighborhood names, also Vancouver and Canada general History. Local and older residents are proud of telling their experiences as well newcomers are anxious to learn.
The barbecues were very attractive and not difficult to have participants; as we had rare opportunities to meet them before.

Dockside - Coal Harbour

As the opportunities to meet the foreigners of our building were rare, we prepared cooking meetings in order to be attractive.
The meetings were really good, with the help of Small grants we had success during the barbecues sharing the knowledge of Vancouver history and culture. Curiosities about the neighbors name, as Coal Harbor or Gastown for example. Local or old residents are proud of telling their history as well the newcomers are curious to learn.
The group is still small, but we can say now we have friends in neighborhood.

Club House

We had four events in October and November, targetting different age groups from elementary school, high school, and the transition to adulthood. I invited a professional speaker to talk about important topics for each group. Parents got to know each other and made friends. Some parents shared their experiences, so new-diagnosis families can have some guidelines without wasting too much energy and time. It’s good to know we have so many similar situations in this community and that we can find empowering solidarity.
