Richmond’s annual Lulu Series is getting ready to kick off next week for the 15th year, bringing together arts experts and enthusiasts from across Metro Vancouver for evening talks.
Since 2003, the city has presented talks by artists, architects, urban planners and cultural leaders. Topics have ranged widely and included planning, public art, urban revitalization and architecture.
This year’s series begins next Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at city hall. Justin Langlois, an artist, educator and writer, will centre on public art and he’ll suggest new ways that artists can “create public art encounters” with communities.
On April 4, Debra Sparrow, an Indigenous knowledge keeper and weaver, will share stories of this land and its links to her Musqueam ancestors.
Finally, on May 9, Vance Harris will discuss the role public art has in shaping development architectural processes.
All talks will begin with a short presentation or performance by a local artist.
All talks are at 7 p.m. at city hall. They are free, but registration is required by visiting the city’s website.
