GVIAS Art Grants, Upcoming Events

In this issue

  • Thursday: Why Knot’s Summer Sale
  • Friday: Burners & Beers at the Sin Bin
  • Saturday: Life Tree Build Party BBQ #2
  • Next Weekend: The LAST White Trash Party by Disaster Area

Tthis is the first year that GVIAS has created a fund for art outside of large events.  We are currently taking applications for large scale art that needs extra funding for either a local exhibition or event, or anything international.  Really any art created by our community is eligible although of course, the same standards will apply when grants are given:  Priority is given to interactive art, art created by GVIAS members or our community, art that is involved more within the community structure.  As the funding is quite low, it is likely that only 1 or 2 projects will receive some extra funding.

Please send in a request for the next grant period:  July/August/Sept – totally $500 to grant.
Send in your requests for selection by August 3rd.

There is also another $500 to allocate for Oct/Nov/Dec and $500 for Jan/Feb/March 2013.

If you require any further information, please contact the grants committee at: [email protected]

It is that time of year again when we all gather in Trout Lake Park for a BBQ.
So mark Wednesday August 1st on your calendar and come out to our family friendly hangout & BBQ in the park. Connect with friends old & new from Burn in the Forest, mingle with the inspiring young fresh eyed noobs and crusty playafied vets and ask them all your last burning questions!

Trout Lake Community Centre, 3350 Victoria Drive, Vancouver, BC V5N 4M4
at the PICNIC AREA as noted on the map, South East corner of the park. Enter closest parking lot via 19th.

This is a Potluck please bring food to share, ensure that the item is radically self reliant as there will not ability to heat up or cook it, and you will need serving utensils if your shared item needs them.
