In July of 2017, the NOW Society partnered with the UNIT/PITT Society for Critical Awareness at 8EAST, a social space for new culture. We present concerts, artists talks, readings, workshops and screenings. We endorse principles of inclusion and anti-discrimination. We want to create a safe and inspiring space for the sharing of culture and ideas.

In this spirit, we will facilitate a renovation that would result in a wheel chair accessible washroom in our space. This renovation will be made with all the necessary permits from the City of Vancouver and would follow current BC Office of Housing and Constructions Standard Building Codes. The NOW Society  has received a Strategic Opportunities Project Grant from the BC Arts Council, contributions from UNIT/PITT and a private donor to partially fund this renovation.

We could use your help!

About us: For over 40 years, the New Orchestra Workshop (NOW) Society has been presenting unique concerts, offering inspiring improvisation workshops, collaborating with world renowned artists and commissioning new works.
