The Arts Experience Project started when a space owned by the City of Vancouver and leased by Storyeum, became vacant. The company was providing immersive experiences to explore the history of Vancouver.
Imagining the space as an Arts Experience Centre, a tour of the space was arranged by the Downtown Vancouver Association Arts and Cultures Forum. Vancouver Community Forums invited community leaders who could benefit from the idea to explore the opportunity.
The idea of creating an Arts Experience Centre in Vancouver has evolved into creating an Arts Experience Project in our theatre of the new world to excite interest in exploring the arts experience in the real world.
