Establishing this weekly art market delivers on the number one priority of the recent Art Plan Vision for the West End, providing a vibrant venue for artists to show and sell there work, it also provides animation and connection for our diverse local community, attracting local and visiting arts fans to the neighbourhood.

Sponsor Opportunity : WE Arts is seeking a title sponsor for the new WEEKLY West End Art Market that will run every Saturday all summer long in the new Jim Deva Plaza. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with local community as well as visitors to our beautiful city and region. We are considering indoor locations for winter art markets as popularity grows.

The Organization: WE Arts and the West End Business Improvement Association (WEBIA) are partnering in the production of this weekly arts market. WEBIA and WE Arts have been working closely for the past 3 years in developing the arts vision and possibilities for animating our West End neighbourhood streets with local arts. With over 20% of our West End community being artistically inclined it is high time for us to showcase the works of Vancouver’s most artful neighbourhood.

Jim Deva Plaza: the new plaza is open at Bute Street to the south side of Davie Street, in celebration of local LGBTQ activist Jim Deva. Jim stood for inclusion, welcome, acceptance, expression, free speech, influencing not only the LGBTQ community here in Vancouver, nationally in Canada, and worldwide, but also human rights that benefit us all. WE Arts is proud to partner in this celebration of welcome, creativity and diversity for us all. The plaza will include a speakers corner, as every voice matters.

We look forward to seeing you at the market. Show your art, meet neighbours, make new friends.

WE Arts creating community with arts.

Please share the buzz, as we connect our creative community.
