Exploring the Creative Experience
ArtsHour takes place at 6.00 pm every Thursday. Artists, musicians, dancers, singers, performers, and creative companies introduce themselves to our community and our community is invited to explore and experience the arts, culture, and creative expression of our community and of our cultural and creative contributors.
Community businesses provide venues, contribute as presenters, and introduce their contribution to our community.
Artists with an interest in creating experiences and community businesses interested in hosting creative experiences communicate their interests on www.artshour.com
www.artshour.com keeps everyone informed about ArtsHour events, experiences, and opportunities to explore, connects communities with interests to information about artists, venues, and contributors, and creates a space for communities to talk about their experiences.
The idea for Artshour was developed over a number of conversations by the Arts and Cultures Forum of the Downtown Vancouver Association and was introduced to the Marketing Council of the Alliance for Arts and Culture and the Retail and Marketing Committees of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
ArtsHour takes place every Thursday afternoon at six pm. It is a time where everyone is invited to explore and experience the arts, where artists, musicians, dancers, singers, performers, and artistic companies can introduce themselves and the experiences they create and contribute to new and familiar audiences, and where businesses providing venues or contributing to the costs of presenting artists can introduce themselves and the opportunities they create and contribute.
Artists and venues interesting in participating, and contributors interested in presenting and hosting ArtsHour experiences can make themselves known on the ArtsHour Communication Centre
The ArtsHour Communication Centre keeps audiences informed about ArtsHour events, experiences, and opportunities to engage personally in creative pursuits, provides connections to information about participating artists, venues, and contributors, and creates a place where audiences can talk about their experiences.
ArtsHour is a time for audiences to experience and explore. The price is reasonable, the commitment is low, and the opportunity is easy. ArtsHour is a time for artists, venues, and contributors to be creative. New connections, relationships, and audiences are created. New appreciation for the arts is discovered. New interest in exploring the art of creating is excited.
ArtsHour is an arts experience project to excite interest in exploring the creative expression of the artists in our community that contribute to our appreciation of our experience of life, of our culture, of our community, and of our creativity.
