Field Guides: an Exhibition Celebrating the Fieldhouse Residencies on Thursday, September 14

As most of you know, Cloudscape HQ is provided by the Vancouver Parks Board’s Fieldhouse Studio program. Every year the Parks Board does a big event to draw everyone’s attention to all the great work that the fieldhouses are doing, and this year it’s Field Guides 2017. Field Guides 2017 is an exhibition at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre that celebrates all the fieldhouse residencies, and is a great way to learn about all the different exciting things that are happening all over Vancouver.

The exhibition will be on display September 11 – 24 at the Roundhouse (181 Roundhouse Mews, Vancouver).  In addition, there will be a special reception there on Thursday, September 14, 600-8:00 pm. Hope to see you there!

state of the practice


This Thursday, 5:00-8:00, is the opening reception for the State of the Practice Exhibition at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center, 181 Roundhouse Mews in Yaletown. All of the artist collectives who are taking part in the Parks’ Board Fieldhouse Residency will be here, showing off the various artistry they’ve created. Cloudscape will be there, of course, presenting two very special projects: a giant comic jam drawn by our members and a comic jam blanket composed of dozens comic jams that were drawn by our students over the course of two years! Come by to hobnob with Cloudscape creators as well as all the talented artists from other fieldhouses.

Hope to see you all there!

Remarkable Women 2014

remarkable women

This year Vancouver is embracing reconciliation through a year-long effort that seeks to heal from the past and build new relationships between Aboriginal Peoples and all Vancouverites. From over 100 nominations, twelve women were selected for the 2014 Remarkable Women poster series honouring women in this Year of Reconciliation. These women are bridge builders, advocates, and peacemakers — community makers who foster healing, support, and respect for all people.

You can view the 2014 posters on the Vancouver website. These posters will also be displayed in community centres, schools, neighbourhood houses and libraries throughout Vancouver.



VanCAF this weekend!

This weekend, you are all invited to the Vancouver Comics Art Festival at the Roundhouse (181 Roundhouse Mews, Davie & Pacific) in Yaletown! The place is going to be full of independent comic creators, both local artists and those from all over North America. Many of them will be speaking on panels about numerous aspects of the comic mediums and all will be also at their own booths, where you can chat, get autographs, and (most importantly) buy their graphic novels.

Cloudscape is going to be there en masse, of course. Many of us will be manning the official Cloudscape booth, though others will have their own individual booths.
