Union Gospel Mission is proud to participate in the Eastside Culture Crawl for the 11thyear! The name of our exhibition, Uncovering Vision, was inspired by a common sentiment expressed by participating artists, year after year: The act of creating art is empowering. It allows people to visually represent themselves in a way that cannot be done through words.


This year’s exhibition features curated artwork from past-participants of UGM’s Photo 101 program.


Participants in our Photo 101 program explore many different neighborhoods within the Downtown Eastside, and engage with diverse subject matter — from picturesque mountains and parks, historical Gastown, Chinatown, to Vancouver’s industrial waterfront. The photos capture a level of beauty and rawness within the Downtown Eastside community that often goes unseen. They open our eyes to new forms of expression, and can be truly transformative. This year, we are looking toward the future of the program – imagining what the next 10 years of Uncovering Vision will mean for our community.

All of the artists who participate in UGM’s Uncovering Vision exhibit are members of the Downtown Eastside community. We are searching for Volunteers with a passion for the Arts and who are comfortable with hosting the public.

Volunteers will be helping to serve coffee, engage patrons, provide information, and just be a friendly presence.

There are four shifts that we need Volunteers for, and if you are interested and available for one of them please let us know.
