Happy Hour: Collaborative Poetry reading with Daniel Zomparelli and Dina Del Bucchia


The Young Patrons program, which I got the chance to work on with CAG Development Officer Kristin Cheung during my time at CAG, aims to create events that are at once social, educational, inclusive and intimate. Events like last week’s Happy Hour with an artist talk by Montreal-based Mohawk artist Skawennati, are a chance for Vancouver young professionals to both get to know one another and learn about art directly from the artists themselves.

Above are some photos from Young Patrons’ first event of the season.

This fall on will include an artist talk with Rebecca Chaperon, as well as an introduction to the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Art Rental & Sales program, and a tour of Isabel Nolan’s exhibition by assistant curator Jas Lally.

See you at the next event on Tuesday September 6 at 6pm.
