(Community announcement by the New West Culture Crawl)
Every year across the five boroughs of New West - Downtown, Historic Sapperton, The Quay, Uptown, the West-End and Queensborough - local emerging and celebrated artists are featured in galleries, studios and destinations across the city. Maps distributed at each participating location provide a user-friendly guide to planning your route and experiencing the crawl. On August 10th and 11th, New Westminster locals and surrounding cultural enthusiasts take to the streets to experience the dynamic local art scene with open venues and events happening citywide. Plan to visit galleries, studios and other venues featuring the work of local artists and artisans, and experience live music, performance and events in every neighbourhood. Each day begins with venues opening at 11am and events continuing on well after sunset. The New West Cultural Crawl, co-presented by Arts Council of New Westminster and the Van Dop Gallery, is a celebrated event focused on the continued thriving of the local cultural sector. Through engaged interaction and ongoing innovation, events like the Crawl help to support and cultivate a meaningful arts and cultural legacy in New Westminster.
August 10 & 11, 2019, 11am - 5pm, various venues across New Westminster. Tickets are free.
