Today on For the Record I interviewed Esther Rausenberg, visual artist and Executive Director of the Eastside Culture Crawl – one of Vancouver’s largest arts festivals.
The ‘Crawl’ is an annual celebration of local artists. Doors open tonight, Thursday November 15th, and the festival runs through to Sunday November 18th. When the crawl started up in 1997, it featured 45 visual artists in just 3 Strathcona area studios. This weekend, over 480 artists will be featured in 70 different buildings around East Vancouver.
Check out the soundcloud link below to hear what Esther had to say about the festival’s history, its future, and how it gives back to the community.
