MOV | The Vancouver Quiz Show
March 24, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Grab a drink and test your knowledge of Vancouver’s most pressing issues.
Drawing upon the used and unused data and map materials developed for Vancouver’s Your Future Home exhibition at the Museum of Vancouver, this “quiz show” will test selected members of the audience about their knowledge on Vancouver’s housing affordability, urban density, transportation, and public space.
These questions evoke the central tenant of this exhibition and concerns about our city. The past, present, and future challenges and opportunities developing and shaping the issues of affordability, livability, and sustainability will be present. While original and creative (if not totally accurate) answers are entertained from contestants, the show invites the audience to learn more about their City and the critical issues framing its future as a home for present and future generations of Vancouverites.
Date: Thursday, March 24
Time: Bar opens at 6pm; Quiz Show begins at 7pm.
