Four Times the Fun this Weekend!

Some weekends are for lounging around in your PJs with a cup of hot cocoa. This upcoming weekend is not one of those. Pull on your boots and get out there, cause you won't want to miss all the fun (times four!) that we have planned...

1. Celebrate Culture!

This weekend — from September 25 to 27, 2015 — Canada is celebrating arts and culture from coast to coast to coast. Culture Days features hundreds of events that you can take part in. Check out the Culture Days website to find out what's happening near you, or simply read on to see what we're up to...


2. See Rats On Stage!

Join us for special presentations of Axis Theatre Company's Hamelin: A New Fable, a musical‐adventure live-action play with an important message about "keeping your word". Loosely adapted from The Pied Piper of Hamelin fable, the performers triple as musicians, actors and puppeteers in a theatrical tour‐de‐force. 

Admission is free! No registration necessary, but do come early as this is a popular program. Each 45-minute workshop takes place twice, at 11am and 1pm. All ages are welcome!

Join us either in Vancouver or in New Westminster:

  • VANCOUVER: ArtStarts on Saturdays
    Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 11am and 1pm

    at ArtStarts Gallery, 808 Richards St, Vancouver (map)
  • NEW WESTMINSTER: ArtStarts at River Market
    September 27, 2015 at 11am and 1pm
    at River Market at Westminster Quay, 810 Quayside Drive, New Westminster (map)

Learn more about ArtStarts on Saturdays and ArtStarts at River Market, and discover upcoming workshops.


3. Last Chance to See At the Intersection!

Sunday, September 27 is the last day to catch our exhibition, At the Intersection: Where Art and Education Meet. (After that, the ArtStarts Gallery will be closed through Friday, October 16, as we install the next exhibition of young people's art.) As always, admission to the Gallery is free and all ages are welcome!


4. RiverFest is the Best!

RiverFest is a festival inspired by the Fraser River. On Saturday, September 26, stop by the Westminster Savings booth at the Discovery Centre in New Westminster between 11am and 5pm to visit us and, of course, to get creative! Westminster Savings generously supports our ArtStarts at River Market events (like Hamelin!) and they've invited us to hang out at their tent for the day. We have some hands-on art-making activties for families planned that celebrate the Fraser River and our fishy friends.
