Come Celebrate with Us!
This year’s Neighbourhood House Week is May 1st – 7th, and we want to celebrate with you!
This year we are celebrating Neighbourhood House Week with Bird House painting on May 2 & 3, a lower mainland Neighbourhood House virtual event on May 4, and are also recognizing Red Dress Day on May 5th.
Stop by on your walk around Kitsilano on Monday May 2nd from 2:30 – 5:00pm, and/or on Tuesday May 3rd from 2:30 – 4:30pm to paint a bird house and hang it on a tree around Kits House.
We’re hoping to have a bunch of creative bird houses around 7th and Vine St painted by you and the rest of the community, so that every time someone walks by they know what an amazing and welcoming community we live in – both for birds and humans!
This event is totally free, for all ages and we’ll be supplying the bird house and everything you’ll need to paint to your heart’s desire.
See you there!
We are proud to invite you to the second virtual Neighbourhood House Week Celebration! The afternoon Zoom gathering will be a time for celebrating the Neighbourhood House Movement, our collective history, present and future. It will be an interactive event open to all neighbourhood house family, featuring celebration, discussion and prizes!
RSVP by May 2 HERE
We invite you to join us to learn and acknowledge Red Dress Day, the national day of awareness for Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada, by creating Faceless Dolls.
The Faceless Dolls project was created by the Native Women’s Association of Canada to visually represent the 582 known cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls who have become faceless victims of crime.
Join us at Kits House, in our community hall, on Thursday May 5th from 2:30 – 6:00pm to create a faceless doll in honour of these women and girls.
