Field Guides marks the culmination of the first cycle of the Vancouver Parks Board’s Artists Fieldhouse Studio Program – an initiative that transformed former care-takers cottages in parks across Vancouver into studio space for artists with community engaged practices. Over 50 artists (solo and in collectives) in all disciplines have been working in 12 field houses across Vancouver, bringing art into the everyday life of community, by inviting neighbours, colleagues and curious visitors to share in creative work. Field Guides celebrates this three year collaboration highlighting the intimate, generous and adventurous work of artists and community members working together as producers, practitioners and audience.

League play day — Sunday 28 September

Elm Park, 3-5 pm

League is an open group that gathers to play invented games and sports as a practice of creative problem-solving. We gather on the last Sunday of each month to improvise and strategize new ways of interacting. Our gatherings are free and open to all. They call for physical and mental activity, so bring both body and mind.
