Art Expo


We know that working in the non-profit housing sector can be challenging. It can be easy to lose sight of why we do what we do. That’s why we’re celebrating our milestone 25thanniversary with an inspiring art expo on the final day of our 2017 conference.

The exhibition will feature art by both professional artists and people living in non-profit housing or accessing social services. The art explores both the struggles and successes of our sector, touching on homelessness, mental health, addictions and, above all, a powerful sense of resilience and healing.

Visit the Britannia Ballroom foyer to meet the artists and organizations running arts programs, including:

  • posAbilities’ Alternative Creations Studio, showcasing artwork created by people with a range of abilities
  • A selection from Pacifica Housing’s fall art show of tenants’ artwork
  • Fused glass and pottery by artists from Studio 73 and Pottery Works, supported by the Community Living Society
  • Maple Ridge artist Kat Wahamaa’s Positive Resistance Quilt, created in collaboration with community members and those experiencing homelessness

Artists from Vancouver Native Housing’s Urban Aboriginal Gallery and more will be giving demonstrations and selling their works in the marketplace in the ballroom foyer.
