Top Vancouver events for Sep 22 - 25
I have always wanted one of those Vancouver neighbourhood shirts, like the ones pictured above. And this week would be a good time to wear it, since there seems to be an underlying neighbourhood theme this week.
A lot of interesting events going on this week, and myself and the rest of the Bees will be at the EastVanLove tweetup so feel free to stop by and say hello!

Graffiti, photography, installations, pop up art shows; East Vancouver is known for its creativity. But who are the faces behind this progressive and flourishing artistic vibrant community? At EastVanLove Volume 3, the Masala Bee and Linzi McGlennon will feature artists and photographers speaking about their work and how East Van has influenced them. We will invite Leah Gregg, Ruven (Mainly Main Magazine) and Nicole Ignacio (of the Main Street Art Collective) to speak about how their artistic work is challenging the future of our hood. There will also be an opportunity for networking and people to give a 60-second pitch about their community organization or business at the end of the event.
