This is a weekend-long event and there are hundreds or artists and dozens of Studios to visit, so put on your walking shoes and crawl around EastVan.
Check out the map of all the studio’s here.
The purposes of the Eastside Culture Crawl Society are:
- To educate and increase the public’s appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, presentations and displays;
- To preserve and promote the development of, and excellence in, the visual arts in Canada by providing opportunities to enable artists to train and produce their work where such facilities are difficult to obtain or otherwise not available
- To advance education and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts by providing opportunities for workshops and seminars in the arts, as well as presentations to the community.
The Eastside Culture Crawl is an annual 4-day visual arts festival in November that involves artists on Vancouver’s Eastside opening their studio to the public. The event is focused on the area bounded by Main St., 1st Ave., Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront and involves painters, jewelers, sculptors, furniture makers, weavers, potters, printmakers, photographers, glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established.
The Eastside Culture Crawl officially began in 1997 with 45 visual artists in 3 Strathcona area studio buildings and was attended by a few hundred people. Since that time the event has grown to include over 400 artists, craftspeople and designers attracting an audience of more than 25,000. The organization itself has evolved to represent the heart of the East Van creative community.
Many of the artists that we share a studio space with at Onlok Gallery & Studios are also participating!
We hope to see you there!
