The City of Richmond is inviting residents to take part in creative activities to contribute their memories and stories of the current Steveston Community Centre and library and share their excitement for the new one to create eye-catching and engaging public art.
Richmond artist Lisa Taniguchi will lead a series of free hands-on art workshops and fun interactive activities to inspire the artwork that will wrap 80 feet of the fencing surrounding the construction site.
The family-friendly registered and drop-in activities, suitable for all ages and skill levels, offered at Steveston Community Centre and library — Multipurpose Room (4111 Moncton Street), include:
- Walk-by word cloud
Drop by and write or draw your stories on a large poster
- Sunday, April 2, 9:30 - 11 a.m.
- No registration required
- Make a Steveston flag!
Drop by to create your own Steveston Community centre and Library Flag
- Tuesday, April 4, 2 - 4 p.m.
- Online registration encouraged at richmond.ca/register (event ID#231176)
- Drop-ins welcome if space permits
Ways to register:

- In-person at any city community facility
Other ways to get involved:
- Follow @CityofRichmondBC on Facebook and Instagram and respond to fund prompts and questions created by the artist
- Visit the Steveston Community Centre and Library between Thursday, March 30, and Friday, April 7, to check out the on-site display in the lobby where public can draw or write their stories.
