Since 1891, the neighbourhood house movement has been working with the diverse communities of British Columbia to foster human connection, a sense of belonging, and engaging diverse and intersectional communities in local activities that are affordable or free.
In today’s digital era, face-to-face connection is slowly disappearing, and being replaced by digital communications and means of expression.
While these new ways of communication bring us new opportunities and power, many of us fear that these new ways of interaction have the potential create an anonymous world, where people lack empathy because of social isolation. We want to support new generations to function and thrive in collaborative social settings.
This is why neighbourhood houses offer strengths-based programs and services that welcome and attract a diversity of participants who work, learn and play alongside each other.
If you have any questions, or if you want to sign up to perform, or share a favourite song for karaoke, please feel free to connect with us. Through this drug-free and alcohol-free art share event, we will create digital stories together that show the fun and value of gathering and collaborating as neighbours!
