Help Shape the Courtyard
Open Call for Submissions
Extended Closing Date: July 7, 2018 | 5pm
Closing Date: Saturday, June 30, 2018 | 5:00 pm
The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Courtyard between the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and the Chinese Cultural Centre is an important space in Vancouver Chinatown. However, this courtyard is not exactly the most vibrant and lively place today. We should change this. Let us re-invigorate Chinatown by bringing people and energy to this space through creative design. To show what is possible, we are organizing a fun 2-day place making event at the courtyard from 4-9pm on August 23-24, 2018.
We Need Your Help
We are looking for 6-8 teams who can set up and operate their own pop-up structures from which they exhibit and sell their creative and unique goods and services. Participants can be from the creative industries and local food businesses, such as designers, entrepreneurs, students, place makers, and performers.
Show us your creative and entrepreneurial side, and help reactivate the empty courtyard in Chinatown by turning it into a vibrant, exciting space.
