ROUNDHOUSE VISION & MISSION

n September 1996, the Roundhouse Advisory Committee, composed of neighbourhood representatives, heritage supporters, members of the arts community and Park Board staff, undertook a retreat to work through a vision for the Roundhouse. The following is the result of those discussions: The overall mission is to celebrate diversity... of people, values, ideas and activities. This mission is made up of three key elements:

THE ROUNDHOUSE AS PROJECT

All of us who work or play or socialize at the Roundhouse will be active participants in an evolving Roundhouse Community project to find new and creative ways to integrate the arts, community, culture and sports. Arts & Recreation Centre THE ROUNDHOUSE AS OASIS 181 Roundhouse Mews The Roundhouse is located in the centre of one of the largest urban experiments in history, transVancouver, BC V6Z 2W3 forming a few hundred acres of mostly vacant lots into one of North America’s densest and most Tel: 604-713-1800 diverse urban sites. The Roundhouse will be an oasis in the centre of this dynamic mix, enabling Fax: 604-713-1813 people to use their creativity and energy (at whatever level) to rejuvenate themselves and to be info@roundhouse.ca better equipped to face a blizzard of challenges and opportunities around them. www.roundhouse.ca

THE ROUNDHOUSE AS CONNECTION

The Roundhouse exists to identify and serve the needs of widely divergent communities. To do this the Roundhouse must reach out to the places and situations where those communities feel comfortable. These relationships will grow into Roundhouse programs through sponsorships, partnerships, and our own productions.

ROUNDHOUSE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE SOCIETY It has been a busy summer at the Roundhouse. We have enjoyed the addition of such new programs as Wheelchair Floorball (part of our Adult Sports drop-in programming), our first ever community garage sale—Preloved is Reloved, and a range of innovative and inclusive arts programs and events.

We are pleased to announce a range of new and exciting programs for children and youth. Preschoolers can now attend Farsi Club, Nature Club, and Family Yoga on weekends, while Elsie Roy Noon Hour offerings have been expanded to include Discover Electronics and Unique Creations. September also brings the arrival of a full-time youth programmer to the Roundhouse team, who will work to expand existing development- and arts-based programs, with a special focus on at-risk youth. We hope children and caretakers also join us in making fond memories during our annual Halloween Carnival and Holidays at the Roundhouse. Remember to register in advance to reserve a spot as these events sell out every year! In addition to recreation programs and special events, our arts programmers have curated a diverse array of arts festivals, exhibitions, and performances in recent months. One such is the Sustenance Festival, part of a citywide celebration to foster greater inclusion in food, arts, and cultural communities. Other exhibitions and performances to keep an eye out for include State of the Practice— featuring artist Sharon Kallis and her work Local Threads: relearning, reciprocity, reconnection on Salish land and sea—and A World of Rhythm: Trichy Sankaran and Friends in Concert.

Ancient ceremonies and songs of Indigenous peoples, as well as creative expressions of visual and performing arts, music, storytelling, and guest speakers will call the wild salmon home to the rivers and streams and honour their important role.
