Eco-Arts Salons are events that bring together those active in creating environmental art with interested community members and representatives of environmental/community groups interested in using art to advance their social or environmental goals. These events serve as a venue for dialogue and for people from a variety of backgrounds to connect professionally and socially.
Community-engaged Eco-Arts is one of the three program priorities selected by the Community Arts Council of Vancouver. This council organizes Eco-Arts Salons (artist talks/art-making events) and community-based public art projects.
CACV has partnered with several agencies throughout the years to take on larger-scale eco-arts projects. Some highlights include Conduit in partnership with Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and Stanley Park Environmental Art Project in partnership with Vancouver Parks Board and Stanley Park Ecology Society in 2006.
