The Vancouver Arts and Cultures Forum was introduced by the Arts and Culture Committee of the Downtown Vancouver Association as a place where community leaders could learn about and explore opportunities, ideas, and initiatives that could contribute to the cultural development of our community.
The Forum was introduced in 2005 at Simon Fraser University’s Downtown Campus and at the sixtieth anniversary celebration of the Downtown Vancouver Association at Centre A, the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Arts in November 2006.
The Vancouver Arts and Cultures Forum communication centre was introduced as an opportunity for cooperative community enterprise for community leaders like the Downtown Vancouver Association, Heritage Vancouver, the Alliance for Arts and Culture, Centre A, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver, the Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance, the Bill Reid Gallery, and other community enterprises who could benefit from exploring opportunities that could contribute to demonstrating Vancouver is a centre for the arts, a community of diverse cultures, and a city of ideas.
If our cultural development contributes to our community development, social development, and sustainable economic development, what contributes to our cultural development?
The Vancouver Arts and Cultures Forum is a communication centre to contribute and explore ideas that contribute and could contribute to our cultural development and to keep ourselves informed of creative contributions and opportunities to explore, contribute, and create.
Vancouver is a community of diverse cultures, a city of ideas, and a centre for the arts. We have the opportunity and resources to increase our contribution to our cultural and community development
The Vancouver Arts and Cultures Forum gives our community the ability to contribute stories, information, ideas, and opportunities to create connections and explore opportunities for creative community enterprise around common interests.
