Like much of the city, over here at the MOV, we’re thinking about Vancouver municipal politics, change, and the arts. What does another three years of Vision Vancouver look like? Increased citizen engagement? Increased investment in arts, culture, public space, and greenways?
Vancouver ChangeCamp might be a good place to start if you’re interested seeing change in yourself, your community or the city. Changecamp brings together people from the business community, the non-profit and activist world, government (both elected officials and staff) and those with lived experience in the issues we care about – MOV will be there!
Meanwhile, the city celebrated some of the city's most creative, at the Eastside Culture Crawl this past weekend, and MOV's Gala Milne produced this CBC spotlight on Melva Forsberg, who has been producing controversial, politicized buttons in Vancouver over the last 30 years - some of which are in archives at the MOV!
And thanks to all who came out to our Built City lecture last week on Revitalizing Wood Architecture. The Migrating Landscapes exhibit is in studio until November 27th, with closing talk and design challenge results announced on Friday November 25th!
