We will be leaving False Creek tomorrow after a 2-week stay. We enjoyed having Emily Carr faculty conduct some of their classes on board — great inspiration! Thanks to all the water-born visitors who explored Deadhead on the weekends — we continue to appreciate your enthusiastic support for Deadhead. We are now heading over to the Fraser River. Please check back for more information.
September 14, Sunday, OPEN HOURS: 3 — 5:30 pm
Catch a False Creek Ferry from either the Granville Island dock (located north of the Granville Island Market) or from the dock on the west side of David Lam Park. Check this MAP before heading over. Fare is $1.75 one way.

After a perfect summer moorage, we said a fond farewell to all of our friends at the Vancouver Maritime Museum and to the wonderful wharfingers who watch over the docks at Heritage Harbour. The Blue Water Systems crew arrived and fired up the winch, pulled up the spuds, and towed us to our new location in False Creek, just off of George Wainborn Park.

Grow diy Manual
From May 1st to November 30th, 2011 Other Sights for Artists’ Projects presented Grow, a project by Vancouver artist Holly Schmidt. The Grow DIY Manual draws from the writing and creative projects generated during the project.
Inspired by the Farmers’ Almanac which is a repository for sage advice about gardening, weather predictions and canning recipes, the Grow DIY Manual brings together critical writing, illustrated DIY projects, weather reports and local seasonal recipes. The manual acts as both a reflection on the Grow project and a look forward to future possibilities.
Contributors include: Barbara Cole, Randy Lee Cutler, Magnolia Pauker, Alexander McNaughton, and Holly Schmidt.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Learn more about the project.
I Know What I Want: Open Studio
An Other Sights collaboration with The Western Front and 221A
Other Sights is collaborating with The Western Front and 221A on a publicly-sited research intensive about the possible futures of the Kingsway, Broadway and Main Street neighbourhood in Vancouver. In addition to conducting interviews with local independent business people, cultural leaders and members of the design and planning community, we gathered and circulated ideas from neighbours at the Western Front 40th Anniversary party.
Between July 22 and 28, members of the Other Sights collective created an Open Studio at the Kingsgate Mall. Using an aerial view of the intersection, we modeled the desires that were offered on site and through othersights.ca. The model adapted, combined and recombined these ideas throughout the week.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia. Learn more about the project.
