Vancouver Local Foods


Local Foods Event During Dineout Vancouver Week

The Art Party occasionally produces events, such as Local Foods and Networking during Dineout Vancouver Week at World of Walas / DUDOC in Vancouver, an Earth Charter Partner.

We promote events on Facebook, including The Art Party Facebook Group, a social networking community for creatives and changemakers in Metro Vancouver. Arts, cultural and startup news / events / workshops / Meetups are welcomed as long as they meet Facebook community standards.


Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 5:30 PM – 9 PM

The Art Party is a social networking community and endorser of Earth Charter®. The Art Party will leverage its +10,000 social media contacts to disseminate the Earth Charter and raise awareness in our local community. The Art Party will collaborate with Earth Charter Partners, Affiliates and with other organizations that have endorsed the Earth Charter in our region. We intend to inspire our members to spread the sustainability vision articulated in the Earth Charter® in Metro Vancouver, such as Vancouver Local Foods and Earth Charter Day Art Show.

The Art Party co-hosted a local food and artisanal vendor event at sustainable design space January 25, 2018 (5:30 pm to 9:00 pm) during Dineout Vancouver Week. Vancouver has been a pioneer of the local food movement, with this subsector of its Green Economy – now a positive economic force in its own right called the “locavore movement”.

Why Vancouver Local Foods Movement?

Eating fresh, locally produced food has always been a way of life in Vancouver, thanks to the bounty flowing from nearby lands and waters. We’re blessed Vancouver is one of the Best Foodie Cities in the world. We love eating good, fresh, organic food!

The event was opened to the public 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm with local food vendors taking place at Dudoc Vancouver in East Vancouver in a 5,000 sq. foot well-restored 1950s warehouse, with large garage doors for easy transfer of food and equipment. It is also home to an urban indoor farm and sustainable design offices, with a large tradeshow area.

Customer Avatar Example: What are Vancouver Cultural Creatives and Changemakers? Ray and Anderson created a questionnaire to identify “Cultural Creatives” in Western society. Below are characteristics of a “Cultural Creative”.

Agreement with 10 or more indicates status as a “Cultural Creative”. 25% of the adult population is a Cultural Creative. That’s 125 million people in the USA, Canada, UK and Australia!

  • Love of nature and deep caring about its preservation, and its natural balance.
  • Strong awareness of the planet-wide issues like climate change and poverty and a desire to see more action on them being active themselves
  • Willingness to pay higher taxes or spend more money for goods if that money went to improving the environment
  • Emphasize the importance of developing and maintaining relationships
  • Emphasize the importance of helping others and developing their unique gifts
  • Volunteer with one or more good causes
