Here and There



Go here to find out more!!! http://www.vancouverdrawdown.com/



Here and There – a community art project!

In conjunction with the Vancouver Draw Down, Sunset Community centre will host a free mapping workshop that features the community art project Here and There.

We will be drawing maps of the neighbourhood, maps of imagination, maps of flight and fancy. Maps can describe a neighbourhood, its history, its people and the imagination of the map’s maker.

A map gives clues and direction and can let the reader understand a little bit about how the map maker experiences life. What do you see and hear as you travel the neighbourhood? What did you see on our way into Sunset Community Centre? What would you like to add to a community map? What would you like everyone to know about your neighbourhood? Where are the hidden treasures?


Come join Pat Beaton and Zee Kesler as we begin to trace the places of our neighbourhood.
Saturday April 24
10am to 12pm
Sunset Community Centre
The event is free of charge and open to all ages.
See you there!
