Creating an inclusive community through celebration and the joy of bhangra

We are driven by artistic innovation, creating inclusive spaces and strong community bonds.

We see the power of arts and culture to shatter barriers and build meaningful bridges between people. Our work is to engage and to provoke – to reimagine ourselves, our identities and roles in our community.

    Edgewater Casino Joins VIBC as Festival Sponsor

     Blog__21_Edgewater_Casino.jpg

    Gaming, dining, promotions, meetings—Edgewater Casino is Vancouver’s destination for all things entertainment. But did you know that Edgewater is also a major contributor to improving the health and well-being of our community? We learned this recently from Jennifer Fields-Bell, the Casino’s General Manager. In the interview below, Ms. Field-Bell describes the wonderful work they do to assist moms, families, and at-risk youth, and the unique employment opportunities they provide for those in need. 

    We’re thrilled to welcome Edgewater Casino as one of our Festival sponsors this year. The work they do to recognize and encourage acceptance, inclusion, and diversity is right in line with VIBC’s own goals to enhance our city by creating opportunities for enjoyment, education, and inspiration for everyone.

    Thanks again to Edgewater for their support, and to Jennifer Fields-Bell for so generously sharing her thoughts on our partnership. #BhangraLove!
