Building on two years of VG PlayRoom sessions where artists experiment with new ideas, Virginia Gillespie has opened the Word Studio upstairs in Alexandra Hall to develop projects, events and training in the Verbal Arts. Performance oriented, Word Studio will generate ideas and projects for a variety of events and engage with the community.
Join us for a day of exploration and fun! We enter a sixth season of our popular monthly trips with a trip to Lonsdale Quay and the North Vancouver waterfront on Tuesday Sept 25th. This season, our out-trips move from the last Monday to the last Tuesday of the month (to take advantage of more venues). On Oct 30th, our wanderings take us to the Maritime Museum at Vanier Park and on Nov 27th, we take our customary last trip of the year to Granville Island, where folks can do some early Christmas shopping. Out-trips leave from Alex House at 10am, arriving back about 2pm.
Enjoy a home-cooked meal, music, games, prizes, and a lot of laughter at our monthly Celebrating Community Lunch – a fixture at Alex House since 1992. Lunches are held the second Wednesday of the month September through June.
The Semiahmoo Peninsula is a virtual hotbed of artists, artisans, crafters and other very talented people. Following the success of last year’s Fair, Alex House is planning another Christmas Craft Fair Saturday Nov 17, 9am to 3pm.
