WE Arts

Connecting Community with Arts, Artists, Artisans, Creative Minds
and Art Lovers

WE Arts is a community group created in 2013 to build a stronger arts presence and a more sustainable creative economy in the West End of Vancouver by showcasing and increasing awareness of the value and contribution of the arts for our community.

Our interest is to connect and support the artistic community, create a vibrant arts experience throughout our neighbourhood, create new economic opportunities for artists, and invite our community to participate in and contribute to the creative experience.

Our interest is to develop a closer sense of community and belonging, to create connections through the isolation and loneliness so frequently felt in our urbanization and accelerated modern life, and to celebrate the diversity and artistic excellence of our unique and vibrant downtown Vancouver community. Our intent is to have the West End community known for our celebration of the arts, for creating connections for our community with for our artists, for our ability to forge creative collaborations, and for the rich diversity of cultures of our community. Our community interest is to excite interest in creating events, to create opportunities for our local artists and to build a thriving creative economy
