The Heritage Lounge will be a part of the Vancouver Mural Festival‘s street festival being sponsored by the Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area (MPBIA).
It will be located in front of Rath Art Supplies at 2412 Main Street, just up from the intersection of Main, Kingsway and 7th Avenue.
A feature display this year will be ‘My Mount Pleasant: Vancouver’s First Suburb’, a project put together by the neighbourhood’s grade five heritage ambassador Lauren Lee for BC Heritage Fairs.
We will have materials about Sean MacPherson’s ‘Remembering Brewery Creek’ project. He has received a grant from the Chapman & Innovations Fund at UBC to create a website and walking app which will remember historical Brewery Creek.
Our Treasured Buildings 2015/2016 Walking Tour pamphlet will be available to take away and we will also have our Mount Pleasantries of the Arts Realm about the neighbourhood’s rich history of the arts.
Hope you can join us. Mount Pleasant’s Heritage Lives!
