The Community Arts Council of Vancouver’s Eco-Arts initiative is looking for poets/storytellers/performers to assist in our event on Tuesday, December 11 at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden where we’ll be creating a snake lantern for the Winter Solstice and then the Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown.
To get us in the spirit, Susan Ma, Education Director at the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, will give us some of the history and traditions of the lunar new year and especially the year of the snake. This will be followed by a selection of readings and poetry about snakes.
If you are a poet with an interest in participating in this public event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll likely have some space for people to spontaneously make their offerings as well.
Send a message to email@example.com if you’d like to participate.
Among those participating so far are: Don Fox, Mary Gavan, Elizabeth Fischer, Lenore Rowntree.
Admission to the event is FREE to Community Arts Vancouver members. You can join online or at the door for any financial donation. Note: Between December 11 and February 17, one of the benefits of membership is to buy membership at the Garden for half-price. Just show your identification and proof of membership.
