Shine: Intercultural Spring Market

March 20, 2022 from 11am-3pm in the Britannia parking lot and the šxʷqʷeləwən ct Carving Centre

The Spring Equinox is a returning of light, a shift from winter to spring. We invite you to celebrate with us and share our stories with each other through music, art, dance, food and togetherness. The market will feature the works of local artisans, delectable food, community tables, and activities—it’s our time to shine again.

Bring your instruments for a chance to play. Get ready to sing, dance, and clap! 

 

We'll have free bannock and Latin American style vegetarian and chicken soups (while supplies last). Elders will be invited to have food first. The šxʷqʷeləwən ct Carving Centre will be reserved for Elders.

Location

šxʷqʷeləwən ct is located in the Britannia Community Centre parking lot at 1001 Cotton Drive.

Britannia is located on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, and we hold the heritage of these lands close in our everyday work. We aim to embrace Indigenous values and practices and are committed to reflecting Indigenous protocols, beliefs, and ways of being in our work. We thank those who came before us and who have guided our learning.
