On the eve of Oct 16, 22 people came out to listen to Elisabeth and Gilbert share about their home country of Venezuela, including its people, scenery, history, music, food, sports, arts and more. We also had the privilege of hearing some of their story and what brings them to Canada, as well as participate in a Venezuelan craft, view their art work and take home yummy Venezuelan recipes.
We were generously hosted by the Steveston Cannery Cafe who provided delicious finger foods and a beautiful cosy space (and free reign to decorate in blue, red and yellow – the colours of the Venezuelan flag!).
Many thanks to the Vancouver Foundation and Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives for funding this event through the neighbourhood small grants program.
