Eastside Culture Crawl 2021 Giveaway

Comments 76 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Eastside Arts Society welcomes art enthusiasts to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the beloved Eastside Culture Crawl and the indelible impact the event has made on the Eastside Arts District community over the past 25 years. The 25th annual Eastside Culture Crawl Visual Art, Design & Craft Festival will feature a new artist livestream schedule, a dedicated appointment-based preview weekend, and the Culture Crawl’s traditional open studio series. The event’s landmark edition offers arts patrons an enhanced opportunity to fully customize their Culture Crawl experience and visit the studios of 400+ artists.

25th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl

  • Preview Weekend: 
    • November 12-14, 2021
    • Friday, 5:00pm to 10:00pm; Saturday & Sunday, 11:00am to 6:00pm
    • Reserved appointments only
  • Open Studio Weekend: November 18-21, 2020
    • Thursday & Friday 5:00pm to 10:00pm; Saturday & Sunday, 11:00am to 6:00pm
  • Where:
    • In-person at various Eastside locations between Columbia St, 1st Ave, Victoria Drive, and the waterfront, and online.

To maximize the Culture Crawl experience and open accessibility for all patrons in Metro Vancouver and beyond, the Eastside Arts Society has created further improvements to its digital presence, including a newly designed and user-friendly website, an artist livestream schedule, appointment booking software, and increased access to artists through 360° virtual studio tours.

For those visitors who wish to attend in-person, the Culture Crawl features two options in 2021.

Based on overwhelmingly positive feedback from 2020, when studio appointment bookings were created for the first time, this year’s event will once again provide a preview weekend November 12-14, reserved for appointments only, cultivating an intimate, quality interactive experience for both artists and guests. And for those Culture Crawl enthusiasts wishing for a more traditional event experience, open studios will return for the event’s main weekend November 18-21, offering patrons the exciting and dynamic energy the event is known for.

A highlight of Vancouver’s arts and cultural calendar, the Eastside Culture Crawl presents unparalleled access to visual artists practicing a variety of different art forms, including painting, sculpture, pottery, photography, jewelry, glass art, furniture, and more. Through a wide range of accessible events and activities both in-person and online, art lovers in the Eastside Arts District and beyond are encouraged to explore their creative curiosities and expand their worldviews through art.

Eastside Arts Society’s health and safety protocols — in strict compliance with provincial health orders — can be viewed here.

Culture Crawl goers are invited to supplement their Eastside Culture Crawl experience through a number of feature presentations and exhibitions, including:
