Calling artists, students, thinkers and planners in Vancouver, BC, who work in community engaged-arts and social practice, architecture, urban planning…

Susanna Haas Lyons is facilitating and co-presenting an evening conversation with artist Candy Chang about place-making, engagement and the possibilities for creative exchange in the places and spaces where we live, work and play.

Thursday November 5, 2015
Vancouver Art Gallery, Courtroom 301

Candy Chang is a Taiwanese-American artist who challenges the conventional perception of public space and the role it can play in our evolving needs as a community and as individuals. Renowned for interactive public installations that provoke civic engagement and emotional introspection, her work has examined issues from criminal justice and the future of vacant buildings to personal aspirations and anxieties. Projects include a vacant high-rise pleading for love, a confessional sanctuary in a Las Vegas casino and a public wall about death and aspirations. Her participatory public art project Before I Die has been created in over 1,000 cities and over 70 countries. Learn more at
