Chown Memorial and Chinese United Church - Cambie and West 19th

Thanks to the Neighbourhood Small Grants program, we hosted our first Chinese Rice Dumpling (Zongzi) Workshop! On June 10, our enthusiastic registrants gathered at the workshop location of Chown Memorial and Chinese United Church. Guests were first treated to a brief history background of the origins of the rice dumpling followed by a dumpling making demo. Participants were then placed in smaller breakout groups that allowed each participant to try their hand at dumpling making.

South Hill Neighbourhood Centre

This Canada 150 NSG Project had two parts, with about 35 people who attended each event.
In May we invited John Atkin to come to South Hill Neighbourhood Centre (SHNC) and give a public lecture about the history of South Vancouver.  He is passionate about the history of Vancouver and he did a great job of focusing on the local history of South Vancouver.  People had lots of questions during the question time.  We included samosas and watermelon, so that neighbours could chat over snacks.

Mount Pleasant-Guelph/Dude Chilling Park-Vancouver, BC

Collage art is a great way to bring people together through collaboration, individual imagination, creativity, and activism. On Sunday October 2017, the Pop-Up Collage tent was set up near the MountPleasant Community Garden in Dude Chilling Park. This event brought neighbors and community members together to make a collage, chat, sip on coffee and indulge in some snacks.

Waverley Avenue

Our event was originally planned for the summer months, but due to neighbour vacation schedules, we opted for a fall celebration. The first weekend was a bust - the rain was a downpour, so we post-pines it again for the last weekend in October - which turned out to be almost summer-like! Success!
