Event Details

A neighbourhood dinner for local artists and makers to discuss our role in the local economy.

Join us for a tasty evening of local foods prepared by Minette Lotz of The Garden Strathcona, samples of a seasonal ale from Strathcona Beer Company and more local food products! As a community partner with the Vancouver Park Board's 'Sustenance Festival' we are gathering over nutritious food, sourced locally, to awaken our taste buds and share quality time in our neighbourhood.

The Strathcona Collective is comprised of local businesses in support of RayCam Renew, and a community where we all live in dignity and prosperity. We believe in community economic development without displacement of existing residents and their families. The Collective is producing a series of meetups (sponsored by the Strathcona BIA), as well as helping connect the local economy to RayCam Renew and impact our neighbourhood in a good way.

Following a meal showcasing local flavours, this evening we will dialogue about protecting neighbourhood culture in the face of rapid gentrification. We will also consider the issues and opportunities of East Strathcona as a 'Maker District*,' a model that the Strathcona BIA and RayCam Renew support, which enables low-barrier employment and creativity for locals.

We will also talk about RayCam's Design Your Life! youth workshop series November 4-9, 2019, in partnership with Heart of the City Festival and the Strathcona Collective. We would love to learn who is working locally and who might also share their creative trade skills with our youth through a 2-4 hour workshop. We are thinking architects, urban planners, landscape architects, communication designers, filmmakers, installation artists, makers, VJs and DJs, and more!

If you are a local artists and want to learn about what's ahppening for our neighbouhood, and connect with like-minded locals join us for this Sunday night dinner and conversation. Copresented by the Strathcona Collective and RayCam Renew, with the assistance of Sustenance Festival and Strathcona BIA, in association with BC Culture Days, and the Vancouver Foundation's 'On the Table.' On the Table is series of events taking place across BC on this evening promoting locals sitting down together to hash out local solutions.

To ensure a mix of participation and to ensure low-income artists' access, we ask that no project or group send more than 2 representatives.
