In light of Vancouver being the hub of cultural diversity, we as a community celebrate it with much fervor and pride.
No where else in the world could we be more efficient as when we engage, indulge and make our voices be heard. To honor that continuing legacy and tradition, former Vancouver Mayor Sam Sullivan hosts the yearly Public Salon. It is a place dedicated for community engagement, inspiration and solidarity. This year, it will be held on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 from 7:00pm-9:30pm.
This year, like in previous ones , The Vancouver Playhouse at 600 Hamilton St. Vancouver brings together thinkers, doers and influencers on a platform so rich that it is almost certainly a sold-out event. With this year’s line-up of Speakers such as (hold your breath) :

Martha Carter –Choreographer at www.martamartaproductions.org
Paul Dragan – Reckless Bike at www.reckless.ca
