Vertality6 — Transformation

CBC Vancouver, 700 Hamilton
Tickets: Members $20 | Non-Members $35

What better way to kick the New Year into full gear than at Vertality6 — the annual sustainability bash of the Board of Change.

The Board of Change is pleased to announce that Coro Strandberg, Strandberg Consulting and Adam Millard, ello Foods and 3Fold Partners, will be our hosts for this year’s event, and what better theme for an event that involves Coro than TRANSFORMATION. Like all of our parties we promise not to disappoint, with great people, great food from the Roaming Dragon, music and new experiences.

Re-Purpose Your Textiles
Part of the Vertality6 Transformation evening will include the creation of a giant re-purposed textile sculpture of a giant butterfly. Under the direction of Robyn Thompson from Robyn Thompson Design she – and you – will re-purpose any items of used clothing that you’d like to donate to transform the metal frame of a butterfly into a colourful textile sculpture. Included above are examples of other re-purposed textile sculptures.

Please bring any 1 to 5 pieces of used clothing items. At the event’s conclusion, all dismantled garments will be donated to local charities.

Changemaker discounted ticket

We need all the help we can get as we are attempting to raise $200,000 for Science World’s Class Field Trip Program, which give kids from underserved schools free entrance to Science World.

Think molecular mixology, 25 stellar beverage stations (open bar) run by award-winning bartenders and mouthwatering appetizers all night. Bragging rights and prizes to be won all in the name of charity. 100% of ticket proceeds will go towards Science World’s Class Field Trip Program, providing underfunded schools free access to Science World.
