As individuals living in multicultural Canada, where no strict religious doctrines are imposed upon us, it is the task of the individual to seek out and define their spiritual beliefs. We have the opportunity to be exposed to diverse cultures, to draw customs from our own heritage, and to combine or reinvent our own unique rituals from all these influences. Whether we choose to gather for our rituals or perform them in solitude, these age-old practices continue to evolve in contemporary society.
Avenue for/des Arts is a Vancouver-based, non-profit, community arts group that has been presenting art exhibitions, events and workshops for over 25 years.

Sunday Dec.13th from 2 to 4 pm
