The Vancouver Park Board Artists in Communities program builds community by making art together using principles of community cultural development.
We host artist residencies each year in participating community centres to support artists working in neighbourhoods and encourage a wide variety of interactions between artists and residents.
Artists collaborate with community members (who may not see themselves as artists) as creators, producers, performers, and active audiences.
The residency projects leave lasting physical or social legacies in the community, such as learning new creative processes, developing collaborative skills, creating an artwork.
The Artists in Communities program makes our neighbourhoods more vibrant. We use art as a catalyst for engaging individuals and communities, inspiring participation, and building relationships
