We acknowledge with deep gratitude that our event will take place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
Vancouver is rapidly losing culturally valuable spaces in favour of condos and other high priced residential development. Cultural workers (artists, community organizers and cultural facilitators) who operate in these spaces are constantly fighting to survive, competing with powerful real estate developers and large, well-financed corporations.
How can we engage all of the stakeholders in this challenging and complex public policy landscape?
Let's start a solutions-based conversation on how communities can preserve culturally valuable spaces in the face of increasingly expensive rent and real estate.
Coworking BC: Where Culture Works
Coworking BC is a collective of independently owned and operated coworking spaces across BC. We present this dialogue as the feature event of Coworking Week 2018, to highlight the practical challenges that affect cultural workers. We hope this event offers an opportunity to collaborate and work together to find creative solutions.
