Artists’ Residency

The Artists’ Residency program is an important part of our commitment to community cultural development. Professional artists create collaborative projects with community members through workshops, programs, discussions, rehearsals and productions. Residency projects are about building a creative community; they promote diversity, innovation, collaboration and involvement.

Moberly hosts residencies for artists who seek space for rehearsal, presentations and collaborative art projects. Artists benefit from a space that gives them the opportunity to develop professionally and/or to create and complete projects. Artists give back to the community through outreach, events and programming activities.  

We support projects that focus on empowering the creative voices of all participants; building on their personal experiences and backgrounds to realize a collaborative creative outcome. If you have a project that you would like to pursue at MACC get in touch with us!

Lori Snyder Medicinal Herb Garden

The Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre garden is being developed into a community space for growing herbs and medicinal plants under the guidance of Lori Snyder, a local indigenous herbalist and educator. Participate in drop-in workshops and gardening sessions to get up close and personal with some herbs that are easy to grow in your garden, and learn how to use them to create important medicines, salves, remedies, teas and more.

If you would like to be involved in helping us grow this garden plot for the community, and learn how to use the herbs grown in it, please email Oliver McTavish-Wisden at


Using the senses, wayfinding // wandering will get curious about the spaces between and within Sunset Community Centre, Sunset Ice Rink, and Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre. With a pop-up approach, artists Matthew Ariaratnam and Julie Hammond invite community members of all ages to investigate how spaces shape us as individuals and as a community. This project uses a de- and re-skilled approach to creating physical and ephemeral artworks. Together we will walk, play, listen, see, read, touch, smell, taste and share.

wayfinding // wandering is part of the Vancouver Park Board Artists in Communities program and is made possible by the Vancouver Park Board and Sunset Community Centre Association.

For more information, visit the wayfinding // wandering project blog.
