Last year, we were thrilled to deliver the 26th annual Culture Crawl to eager audiences. We were proud to offer our audiences in-person opportunities to engage with Eastside art and artists, while still providing virtual opportunities to reach audiences across the world. This was made possible thanks to the support of our donors.

Now in our 27th year, the Culture Crawl has grown from a community of 45 artists, to an annual visual arts festival that directly connects art lovers such as yourself with more than 500 + artists, crafts people, and designers. For artists, the Culture Crawl promotes engagement and exchange, and our vibrant Eastside Arts District is showcased as the hot-bed of arts and culture it truly is, with more artists and arts organizations per capita than anywhere else in Canada.
Beyond the Culture Crawl festival, Eastside Arts Society (EAS) programs Studio 101; an educational initiative that explores the arts with students from inner city schools, connects elementary school students with local artists for free hands-on projects, developing the next generation of artists and art lovers. For many of the 220 + youth we work with, Studio 101 is a vital point of connection during these uncertain times.
For the Culture Crawl’s 27th anniversary, we are thrilled to be building on last year’s successes and continue to deliver safe and innovative programming to provide much needed and valued opportunities to connect artists with the public. In addition to our cherished Culture Crawl, the EAS produced the 2nd annual CREATE! Arts Festival and continues our work to make the Eastside Arts District a reality. Through our expanded programming, we remain focused on supporting, protecting and celebrating the visual artists who have forged the unique and cherished creative cultural ecology of East Vancouver we all know and love.
As a registered charity, we rely on the support of donors and supporters like you to be there for our community, our local artists, and the youth we work with.
We hope you will consider making a donation to the Eastside Arts Society. Your support will help us plan for the future, deliver our 27th annual Culture Crawl, and ensure we can make another 27 years’ worth of memories together – Art Happens Here!
