Get Lucky Art Show 2018
Presented by District Local Vancouver
In celebration of Chinese New Year 2018 (Year of the Dog!), we’ve invited Vancouver artists to create artwork on red pocket/lucky envelopes for a one-day art show. Artists have the freedom to use their media of choice, using red envelopes as the canvas.
Timed with the Chinese New Year Parade, the art show is right on the parade route. Come get a full dose of new year’s fun and culture and party with us!
Lucky Red Envelope Art by 35+ Vancouver Artists

Free event – RSVP on Eventbrite | For all ages – bring your friends and family (babies and grandma, too!)
*Donations will be gratefully accepted – help us put on more community events like this.
As the landscape of Chinatown rapidly changes, it is part of an ongoing discussion for us and many others to activate community participation in the neighbourhood in creative and meaningful ways. In bringing together local artists around an iconic cultural celebration, we hope to inject a bit of fun with culturally relevant events that bridge connections between new and old.
District Local is a living, breathing anthology of Vancouver happenings and good people doing good things. Coffee shop poetry slams. Weekend markets. Art shows. Photo walks. Breaking bread with strangers. We want to nudge you out of your comfort zone and get you out to experience and enjoy more of what this city has to offer. We’ve always got our eyes and ears out for the next rad thing – hit us up for event tips, collabs, and partnerships.
FORTUNE SOUND CLUB
Nuanced by the grit and grime of its historic locale in Vancouver’s Chinatown, Fortune Sound Club seamlessly blends high and low by bringing up-from-the-street ambience into a clean and modern setting. What was once the infamous Ming’s Chinese Restaurant is now a revamped space focusing on innovative design, art that can’t be messed with, and eco-friendly features.
With thanks + love to:
