Moberly Park hosts one of the Vancouver Park Board’s Fieldhouse Residencies. Evolving from a pilot project in 2011, the studio residencies program now includes over 50 artists (solo or part of collectives) that work out of field houses, park facilities, marinas, and community centres. The program provides work-only studios for artists in exchange for community arts-based engagement.
Echo Park Film Centre
Echo Park Film offers an open invitation for a convening around community film, food, and garden. Through an ongoing series of free public workshops and screenings, neighbours and friends will use organic materials grown in the community garden and surrounding area as ingredients to create eco-friendly films that celebrate growing, community, and connection to the urban landscape.
An important part of Echo Park’s mandate is their focus on marginalized communities becoming active participants in the creation and dissemination of experimental and documentary film in order to truly share the many powerful voices and visions that make up the fabric of contemporary life.
