Art Vancouver has a simple but important mission: to grow, inspire and empower the local and international arts community. By attracting established and emerging artists and galleries to our art fair we contribute to Vancouver's cultural development and the wider economy. A society is judged by it's arts and culture and Art Vancouver is already helping to make significant advances in the way our city is viewed by the art world. The arts enrich our community by enhancing education, helping to create connections and communities, stimulating discussion and facilitating creative thinking. Through our event we hope to bring these benefits to an ever-increasing audience in the heart of Vancouver.
