Who's new on the block?
Hi humans! Welcome to district ART, we are so happy you stopped by to check out our first blog post. We are so excited to go on this journey together with you.
We found it difficult to get inspired to connect with others and create art in our daily lives with the hectic pace of life in Vancouver, so we decided to layer it together like an Oreo cookie. In this way we can address some of the most prevalent challenges facing our city today (isolation and lack of participation) and encourage us to think creatively of what our community can look like in the future.
Our primary purpose for being is to go on 'choose your own adventure' type journeys with those who are close to us, (our neighbours), and to make them as interesting as possible (insert the artists and the creatives)! We believe that if we all work together with the help of a little creative fairy dust, we can create unique communities in our city that address the issues that are most important to the folks who live there.
Let's jump right in!
