Vancouver Art Gallery Forum
Thanks to Creative Vancouver, we have audio recordings of the recent forum – a conversation on the Future of the Vancouver Art Gallery. This was hosted at Robson Square on May 20, 2010 by the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning, the SFU City Program, and the Metro Vancouver Chapter of Architecture Canada.
The Vancouver Art Gallery is our community resource. Its future will play a significant role and have a significant impact on the future of our community.
Its future will also involve the investment of other community resources, – our government money and our public space. Our common interest is to get the highest possible contribution to our community from our resources.
The decision involves our cultural, heritage, urban design, and community development interests. It is in our interest to gather all the information and ideas we can around our interests and the opportunities we have so we can better understand the impact and contribution of different choices on three significant community resources, – our public art gallery, the national heritage building that marks the centre of our city, and the unique role and contribution of Robson Square to our community and downtown core.
The conversation was recorded so the observations and ideas expressed could be made available for community leaders and contributors to explore and consider. The recording could be transcribed and a summary of the ideas and opinions expressed by the presenters and the audience made available on line for conversation and contribution by leaders from the communities of interest involved and other knowledgeable members of our community.
