I think that one of the best ways that you can get a feel for a school and their programming, as well as the possibilities that await after graduation, is to check and see what their alumni are doing.

You can check the updates here in escene, a monthly online publication that focuses on alumni-specific news, information and opportunities. It’s also worth exploring the Visions newsletter, which can be found here.

In its 14th year, the Eastside Culture Crawl is a free annual 3-day visual arts phenomenon. This event involves more than 10,000 people visiting artists in their studios in the area bounded by Main Street to Victoria Drive and from First Avenue north to the waterfront of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The Eastside Culture Crawl Society provides opportunities for the public to engage with member artists through the ongoing creation of events and programming that support the growth of east side artists. For more information on the history of this event, visit this link here.
