The theme of our 34th Draw By Night event focused on an on-going issue in Vancouver: Housing. We teamed up this month with Little Mountain Project’s David Vaisbord, to discuss social housing, community, neighborhoods, and spaces for artists. Vaisbord has been working on the Little Moutain Project for over 6 years, documenting, filming and activating the now-defunct social housing projects at 33rd and Main Street. To a small but engaged group of DBNers, Vaisbord showed us a trailer for his upcoming documentary, showcasing one family displaced by the Vancouver Condo craze.

Draw By Night would like to sincerely thank all of those who came out to draw their idea of home, fantastical, humorous, nostalgic, chaotic and otherwise. If you want to get involved with the Little Mountain Project, David would be more than happy to tell you about the project and what you can do for this community.

And continuing with the theme of housing, architecture and this wonderful city of Vancouver, DBN has teamed up with the Museum of Vancouver and Vancouver Urban Sketchers for a special event March 27th at the MOV. Check out the Facebook event and other links for more information:
