BC Artscape opens in Chinatown at Sun Wah Centre

Artists in Vancouver have reason to celebrate after a new cultural centre opened in the city’s Chinatown neighbourhood on Sunday, touting 55 affordable spaces for artists and support groups.

The newly renovated home of BC Artscape at the Sun Wah Centre, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating affordable cultural spaces, is nearly 50,000 square feet and has already rented spaces to more than 71 collaborators and artists.

BC Artscape president Genevieve Bucher says she hopes the renewed space at the Sun Wah Centre will become an creative hub that supports cultural activities and arts without artists fearing threats of eviction or rent hikes.
