Silk & Spice

Following the Routes of Trade and Beyond

Silk & Spice is a photographic exhibition that started in 2016 as a community project to build connections within the multicultural communities living in Vancouver.  The visual examples of Asian countries and Vancouver spaces allow participants to explore different cultures that belonged to the ancient trade routes and find the common unifying factors pertaining to all humanity.

The Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society (VAHMS) recognizes the importance of strengthening the cross-cultural exchanges between Canada and Asia in cultural areas to reach more audiences and foster integrated cooperation.  Following the Silk Routes and Beyond in Vancouver is designed to improve the understanding of the cultural and commercial influences between East and West.

Objective:

To bring Vancouver communities and multicultural organizations together to strengthen cultural and community exchanges.
