ART HAPPENS HERE ...
Did you know that Vancouver’s Eastside has the largest ratio of artists per capita of any city in the country? Our artists are a cultural treasure that we at the Eastside Culture Crawl Society (ECCS) have promoted and supported for 22 years. We enjoy a distinct privilege being able to explore the studios and the work of some of the country’s most prolific and storied artists, and those just emerging, right in our own backyard. This cultural treasure is at the heart of not only the Eastside Culture Crawl, but Vancouver and the Coast, and it is a vital asset we at ECCS work hard to support, celebrate and protect.
More than ever before, your support is crucial to ensure that Art Happens Here, now, and for future generations. Our festival brings together a community and the experience for attendees is unforgettable. The opportunity to connect with an artist and their work in the intimacy of a studio is a cherished experience that is possible with the hard work of the ECCS.
