CREATE! Arts Festival is an Eastside Arts Society production. Your support of the Eastside Arts Society is an investment in the arts and artists of Vancouver’s Eastside. It allows us to build upon a 25-year legacy of connecting community with East Vancouver’s vital population of artists, creating access to culture and fostering a love of visual art for so many over the years, and for years to come.
