ARTIST CALL: 2021 Pride Art Walk

The 2021 Pride Art Walk is a COVID-friendly event organized by the Vancouver Pride Society. In a second year without our familiar Pride events, this curated selection of public art installations throughout Downtown Vancouver is a fun and safe way to be queer and visible. Dress up with your bubble, enjoy the walk, and take fun photos! For more information, see last year’s event: vancouverpride.ca/community-event/pride-art-walk/

This event is a collaboration with VMF Projects.

Guest Curator: Sammi Wei (she/her/hers)
