I believe it’s crazy important to be aware of what is happening in your city & your community.
For some time now, I have wanted to launch an events site for Vancouver.
Until that happens, I am going to maintain this list of my recommended events to check out in Vancouver BC.
Have a look, I bet there’s a bunch of stuff here you’d enjoy!
And if you know of anything interesting that I’m missing here, give me a shout!
