July 07, 2022 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | 2.0, Elevation
Vancouver's Eastside Culture Crawl Society recently reported on the displacement of artists from the district with the highest density of visual artists in Canada. The case study, which won awards from CIP and PIBC, discusses the key role of artists in building community, fostering creativity and spurring economic activity. Artist and planner John Steil describes a comprehensive 'no net loss, plus!' strategy to protect, enhance and grow the supply of artist production space. This session will provide an update on subsequent steps taken to develop an Eastside Arts District, addressing Steil's experience in the overlapping realms of art, volunteering, and planning practice.
