Orange Boxes and City Futures

The Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre is organizing a community art project in Vancouver centered on “orange construction boxes”:

Orange Boxes and City Futures is a community collaborative project that examines the orange fences that surround trees in construction zones in Vancouver. What do these orange boxes say about the city and its transformations? How do they make visible the future of a building or a neighborhood?

Participate in this series of workshops to engage in art activities and discussions that relate to your neighbourhood and these fences. We will photograph and draw orange boxes, share food, create poetry, and discuss our ideas and experiences of change, focusing on our everyday life and sense of home. To conclude the workshops, we will create a final exhibition at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre.”

Dates for the project are every Monday, April 29 to May 27th, 2-4 PM.

You can register to participate through the City of Vancouver website or get more information on their Facebook event.
