Join NVRC Artist in Residence Cath Hughes for an art and environment workshop. Beginning
at the artists residency studio at Chris Zuehlke Memorial Park, we will walk, talk and pick litter
in the trails around. Back at the studio, we will reflect on the types of waste found, pool
materials (‘mix’) and make, exploring ways in which to transform found waste into thoughtful
and provoking artworks. Cath will share her ideas for working with found plastics and objects,
whilst we discuss ways to combat plastic pollution in our day to day lives.
North Vancouver Recreation and Culture
The North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission was established in 1970 as a partnership between the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver and we are proud to have served one of Canada's most active and healthy communities since then.
Our mission is to build healthy individuals, families and communities and we know that recreation and culture are vital to the overall health, wellness and creativity of our community. That's why we provide and facilitate quality recreation and culture programs, services and events that enhance quality of life for all North Vancouver residents.
We operate 11 Community Recreation Centres, the North Vancouver Tennis Centre and Centennial Theatre, the North Shore’s largest performing arts theatre. We also manage room and venue bookings for facilities, fields, and outdoor spaces across North Vancouver.
We promote creativity, celebrate diversity and contribute to North Vancouver’s unique sense of place through the provision of cultural services that include a comprehensive Arts & Culture Grants program, cultural planning resources, and a public art program.
North Vancouver Recreation & Culture gratefully acknowledges that we operate on the traditional, unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
