Carnaval del Sol’s Latin American celebrations are taking a step beyond the classic COVID online programming. The 12th Carnaval will take place in three forms: online (through workshops and a series showcasing Latin American culture through music, cooking, dance, and more) in-person (including a physically distanced flamenco night at the Granville Island Pavilion) and at restaurants (okay, that’s also in-person, but food being involved makes it a whole different experience in our books). Check out their website for details on all of the events.
When: Now until Sunday, August 9Where: Online and in-person; multiple venuesMore Info: carnavaldelsol.ca
What defined west coast modern living in the mid-twentieth century? Art, of course. Check out the over three hundred works in ceramics, fashion, furniture, jewellery and textiles created from 1945 to 1975 at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Modern in the Making exhibit, which just opened last week. It’s the most comprehensive collection of this kind of work established to date, and also one of the only safely-distanced indoor activities that still feels pretty normal.
When: Now until January 3, 2021Where: Vancouver Art GalleryMore Info: vanartgallery.bc.ca
