ARTS, CULTURE & TOURISM
Following our mandate to continually enhance the communities in which we operate, Quay North Urban is proud to support the following organizations.
The Polygon Gallery is an important cultural institution in North Vancouver that highlights local contemporary artists, and hosts world-renowned exhibits. As an annual sponsor of The Polygon Gallery, we support the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Polygon, and all of their innovative programming.
NORTH SHORE ARTIST GUILD
We partnered with the NSAG to create a unique community gallery space, run by artists to showcase and sell their work, and host events for the community. Brushstrokes Gallery was in operation for many years at Lonsdale Quay Market, and we continue to maintain a great relationship with the organization.
As the official operator of the Destination BC Visitor Centre for North Vancouver, and the only private company operating a Visitor Centre in BC, we serve the needs of visitors, by promoting destinations and activities within the region. Quay North Urban manages the program, donates storefront space and resources free of charge, and subsidizes the operating budget each year, to ensure the neighbourhood is served as a tourist destination. The Visitor Centre is co-funded by Destination BC, the City of North Vancouver and the Lower Lonsdale BIA.
Over more than 40 years in business, Quay North Urban Development has commissioned more than 20 pieces of public art in the various communities in which we operate. Many of the pieces are on permanent display at our various properties.
