Arts & Health: Healthy Aging through the Arts recognizes that participating in creative arts practice builds better health in older adults. Professional artists work collaboratively with seniors and Elders, facilitating the expression of participants’ knowledge and life experiences.

INFO | FB @qafvancouver | TW @qafvancouver | IG @queerarts

Futurism and Fantasy have always been cornerstones of the 2SLGBTQIA+ Experience. Where else can we create a space where we envision ourselves as the free and empowered superbeings we know ourselves to be? Within our many queer communities, there is dazzling diversity in how we envision Future and in how we construct Fantasy. For Queers in Space there are no “final frontiers” —only limitless potentials and infinite futures. 2023 Festival highlights include a visual art exhibition curated by Zandi Dandizette; celebrated author Joshua Whitehead; Sujit Vaidya’s sensuous Breathe in the Fragrance; and a tribute to Canada’s most cosmic composer, Claude Vivier, on the 40th anniversary of his death.

Tuesday, July 11 – Tuesday, July  18

A Vancouver Park Board residency

Tue Jul 11 – Tue Jul 18

This annual call to explore new frontiers invites you to open your ears and listen to your environment.

How many times in our busy lives do we ever stop to just listen? Listen to the sounds around us, listen to our inner voice, listen to nature or listen to our family and friends talk. Nowadays, nobody seems to have the time to listen because they are just rushing through everything. Listening is an art that requires patience, and to remind people of its benefits. . . –
