Vancouver’s best excuse for wandering into other people’s homes is back this November for inspiring and excellent, Eastside Culture Crawl, being held from November 15 – 18, 2018.

Now in its 22nd year, the annual celebration of art features hundreds of Vancouver artists opening the front doors of their homes and studios to the public.

The event focuses on the area around Main Street, 1st Avenue, Victoria Drive and the Waterfront and involves painters, jewellers, sculptors, furniture makers, weavers, potters, printmakers, photographers, glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established.

More than 25,000 people take to the streets each year for a fascinating glimpse into the city’s creative scene. Vancouver’s Eastside has the largest ratio of artists per capita of any city in Canada. Home to hundreds of artists who open their studio during “The Crawl”, the area is a nucleus for Vancouver’s dynamic creative community.

The Eastside Culture Crawl officially began in 1997 when 45 visual artists in the Strathcona neighbourhood opened up their studios. Initially, the event was attended by a few hundred people.

Since that time, the culture crawl has grown to include over 400 artists, craftspeople and designers attracting a major audience. The organization itself has evolved to represent the heart of the East Van creative community.

If you’re on the hunt for a new piece of art, or are looking for some creative gifts for the holiday season, the culture crawl is an excellent opportunity for purchasing unique gifts and supporting local artists.
