ABOUT REVOLVING DOOR
Big things are happening in Southeast False Creek. Over the past three years we’ve watched the corner of East First and Quebec Street evolve and grow alongside the development of Meccanica. Now, as the building nears completion the area is also coming into fruition, developing an identity of its own.
Revolving Door is a series of intimate events taking place at Meccanica’s new presentation centre between August – November, 2014, aimed at cultivating culture and fostering a deeper sense of community within the Southeast False Creek neighbourhood. From inspired art showings, to sustainable dining, to pet-friendly photo-shoots, the events have been curated by local connectors (who we affectionately refer to as our Revolving Door residents) with a goal of telling their unique stories to the larger community.
Each event also raises funds for the Revolving Door resident’s charity of choice thanks to the good folks at Handybook.UPCOMING EVENTS:
