Description: Community Celebrations …

  • are generally events that provide an opportunity for local residents of all backgrounds to gather and to participate in a celebration of neighbourhood or community;
  • are NOT, however, restricted to geographical, neighbourhood-based definitions of community;
  • offer opportunities for diverse, social or cultural communities in North Vancouver to share and celebrate their distinct place in the social fabric;
  • provide a planned program of creative and engaging community activities, including typically – but not limited to – a range of performing, visual and literary arts;
  • may involve amateur, community-based, student, emerging or established professional artists, but should always articulate a clear sense of how the project benefits, engages or involves the community;
  • are often recurring, annual events;
  • are often but not exclusively reliant on the organizational efforts of volunteers;
  • are open to and inclusive of a wide audience that includes: families, youth, seniors, disabled, First Nations and/or culturally diverse communities.
