With challenging food safety regulation in Vancouver, we put a twist on potluck and provided guests with comfort food from 2 of the best food trucks in the city; Holi Masala and Chickpea. The art and food were further enhanced by ice-cold, refreshing brews, which were donated by our generous partner, Brooklyn Brewery, and sexy tunes from our hot DJs, Kerry Chambers and Alex D.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to our major partners, without whom this celebration of art and community would not be possible; CAPIC Vancouver, the Idea School of Design at Capilano University, Beau Photo and of course, Brooklyn Brewery.
