Drawing Vancouver Together has taken place numerous times over the past few years. We provide all of the necessary drawing media and offer the public an opportunity to be creative and connect with new individuals in this accessible and low-barrier social event. This year, we provided the public with tote bags which provided the same experience as previous years but the completed totes had more utility than canvas boards. Every single bag was taken home to be re-used! It promoted sustainability as well as a great keepsake (especially for the tourists that wandered by the event).
The Nepali Canadian Community in Metro Vancouver had organised a potluck picnic/ Nepali cultural dance show to promote Nepali arts and culture contributing to the Canadian mosaic on June 23rd Saturday 2018 at the Bear Creek Park, Surrey . It was open to everyone in the local community and therefore turnout was about 200 people from different communities. Everybody brought and shared different kinds of food, making it a very enjoyable event for all.
A small group of caring individuals decided to create a community garden in our condominium. Generally, people did not interact until this project started. Since then, people know more about one another, joined each other in creating something beautiful and functional, and brought the building community together as a whole. Our main event was a community BBQ that celebrated the end of a wonderful growing season in the new gardens. The attached photos show the successes of the garden space and the summer-end event.
This event is to let the people especially the Chinese immigration to get to know more about the lovely city --Surrey, also to let people cherish this beautiful environment.

the best part of the tea was that no one wanted to leave when it was over. What a commpliment!
