We’ve moved!

Made in BC has moved a few blocks away from our previous office. We have joined multiple other arts and culture organisations in a new BC Artscape project in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Spanning three vacant floors and the rooftop of the Sun Wah Centre, BC Artscape Sun Wah will bring together a diverse mix of artists, cultural producers, community groups and the public to create a community asset for Chinatown that enriches its unique sense of place. We’re looking forward to working in and seeing the possibilities of this new creative environment.

Come visit us at our new office! Our address is: 268 Keefer Street, Suite 303, Vancouver, BC, V6A 1X5

Community Engagement

MINE youth project is heading North

MINE youth project will be heading to Northern BC in April. Kelly McInnes and Rianne Švelnis will lead youth engagement workshops that center around the themes of consumption, materialism, identity, gender and queer expression, fast fashion, using clothing as the common thread.

They will have three days of workshops (April 15-17) in collaboration with the Bulkley Valley Concert Association in Smithers. We are super happy to see this project travel and we are thankful for the support of the BC Arts Council in making this possible.

Des arts dehors / Arts Outside

Festival du bois

Last week, two of the artists in our Des arts dehors – Arts Outside program performed at Festival du Bois, a francophone festival in Maillardville. Eloi Homier presented Alphonse et Lola multiple times and led some lively workshops afterwards! Isabelle Kirouac also performed Habitats twice to an enchanted crowd.

We were happy to see a francophone presenter programming multiple professional dance shows within the festival! We love to see dance in new and interesting settings. The performances were well received and though it was rainy, the children’s tent was brightened up by the dancing!
