It’s the day after our federal election and I’m in need of a lighthearted post – it was an extremely dramatic election night.
So, here’s a small round up of some of the things that are happening in this neck of the woods:
On Thursday, the Museum of Vancouver opens its Bhangra.me exhibition, about the history of Bhangra in Vancouver. Their programming has become absolutely stellar, both in the museum itself and in the ways it takes its exhibitions beyond that space.
This coming weekend, the Ederlezi Balkan Brass Festival puts on a bunch of high-energy shows. Or, if crafts are more your thing, you can go to Got Craft? and do some last-minute Mothers’ Day shopping.
The next weekend, the 2011 Northern Voice Personal Blogging and Social Media Conference is happening. I’m looking forward to the photo workshops, especially as the conference is on the same weekend as this.
I’m happy the Vancouver Farmers’ Market summer season is beginning again soon – I’ve been missing the convenience of going to the Trout Lake site.
Throughout much of May, you can check out emerging artists at Emily Carr University’s Degree Exhibition.
That’s only a smidgeon of what’s going on, of course. Here are a few links to sites that can tell you about even more:
I’d love to know what’s happening where you are. Or, if you’re from here, anything I’ve missed that you’d like to share.
