Our INCLUSION Art Show & Sale is just a few months away, and we’re already gearing up for it! Help support our show by coming out to our Pub Night Fundraiser on June 6th.  Join us at the John B. Pub in Coquitlam (1000 Austin Ave), which is accessible by transit, and wheelchair friendly! This event features a silent auction where you can bid for beautiful pieces, as well as 50/50 draws and live music. To add to the fun, Kwantlen Polytechnic University is also generously donating door prizes that everyone has a chance of winning. We all know that food brings people together, so your ticket includes a full meal with a beef, chicken, or veggie burger, fries and your drink of choice.  Talk about a jam packed night!

Don’t procrastinate buying a ticket, as they are $20 until May 30th, then $25 onwards. As seating is limited, buy your ticket today and make sure to RSVP to to secure your spot!

Save The Date!

That special time of year is coming! As we celebrate Community Inclusion month in October, we are pleased to host our 14th Annual INCLUSION Art Show & Sale. We believe that everybody has the ability to create beautiful things, and want to showcase it to you on October 11, 2018 from 10:30am-8:30pm at Heritage Hall in Vancouver. The show features recent creations of hundreds of artists who are working independently or in studios supported by Community Living agencies across Metro Vancouver. This event is open to the public by donation, and we hope to see you there! For more information, please visit:
