Metro Vancouver Sustainability Community Breakfast


Creating Spaces for Arts and Culture

Arts and culture are often considered the fourth pillar of a sustainable community. This Valentines Day breakfast explores the importance of creating and retaining cultural spaces in the region. How can we ensure these spaces are given due consideration as cities develop, and property prices escalate? Join us to hear three expert panelists speak about the intrinsic, economic and core value of arts and cultural spaces, how they are supported by local municipalities, and how they can play an integral role in complete communities.


  • Howard Jang, Executive Director, Arts Club Theatre Company
  • Jacqueline Gijssen, Senior Cultural Planner, City of Vancouver
  • Greg Magirescu, Manager, Arts & Cultural Development, City of New Westminster
