Connection in Social Isolation

What have you learned about community and connection in the past year?


In the midst of a historic moment in time, we have globally faced a year of social disconnect and isolation, challenging the way that we connect with others and shining a light on the importance of community. This year we have collected 100+ responses from members of our Downtown Eastside community, as well as responses from the greater Vancouver community and all those participating virtually.

We hope that these responses will provide insight to attendees of the very human and real experiences this past year has brought. By hosting our event virtually, our entrepreneurs and community thought leaders will share the lessons, realities, and hopes that we have for community connectedness moving forward.
