Global Village

The Global Village, presented by the Port of Vancouver is a cultural hub of cultural activities and performances. During the day, the zone is anchored by Port Metro’s activation where you can tour the inside of a giant 40′ shipping container. Other activies in the Global Village include City Centre Community Centre’s Harvest Full Moon project, a How To… with a mix of cultural artists, and the Global Village Stage.

At dusk, the zone transforms in the Cinevolution’s Your Kontinent Digital Carnival that will showcase multimedia light based art installations and performances. This zone is cultural creativity at its finest.


Global Village Stage

An eclectic mix of talent will grace the Global Village Stage with spoken word poetry, opera, dance, music and more. Presented by the Port of Vancouver, you can find this stage under the tent of Global Village.
