The Vancouver Urbanarium Society, in partnership with the City of Vancouver, presents the inaugural Doors Open Vancouver Saturday, October 4th from 10am – 5pm. DOV will offer free behind the scenes access to more than 25 buildings that highlight Vancouver’s civic services and diverse architectural heritage. Doors Open Vancouver is seeking volunteers to join us on the day of the event help showcase these buildings.
Volunteers can sign up to participate here and be sure to note any special expertise in architecture or related fields!
Projects In Place is ramping up for another build on September 13th and 14th!
This community build is for the Grandview Housing Co-op, a small Co-op off of Commercial Drive. It's been a labour of love that PIP has been working on for almost 2 years and they're finally ready to have community volunteers come show their support. Other than the official build days, help is also needed for prep work; sanding, cutting lumber etc.
If any WIA members are interested in participating there are a lot of elements to be built, so your help would be greatly appreciated.
