Visioning together–join the conversation! 

West Vancouver has a thriving arts and culture community.

The District of West Vancouver is engaged in developing a new arts and culture facility to replace the three existing dedicated arts facilities (Gertrude Lawson House, Music Box, and Silk Purse), which were originally built as single-family dwellings. 

Creating a new arts and culture facility is a multi-phased project that will take several years of planning before it is realized. The work of this phase is to re-examine the vision for the project and explore governance models. This will further inform the selection of the site, at a later stage.

The visioning workshops are the first in a series of opportunities for you to provide input into the planning of a new replacement arts facility. 

Be part of the visioning process by attending a workshop. WVCAC Members are invited to a dedicated workshop on Mon. June 27 in Millennium Park, next to the Music Box. The goal of this engagement is to develop a working vision and concept for a replacement arts facility. This work will inform the development of a proposed governance model and funding planning. To Register, click the 'Register for this event' button. Alliance Members can register up to 2 representatives.

If you are unable to attend this workshop, 2 community wide workshops are available on Thurs. June 23.
