100 Year Journey is a new publication that captures and commemorates the stories of early South Asian pioneers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and innovators as they settled in the province of BC and made it their home. Come celebrate the launch at a gala, invitation-only event on Saturday, November 29 at 6:00 pm at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. Great food, great wine, a great venue and two leading US-based entertainers will ensure the evening is truly memorable.
Even better: there’s a VIBC connection! We're listed in the publication as the project’s “Community Partner”—the only one in this category. VIBC is dedicated to creating community engagement throughout the year by building partnerships with other cultural organizations, supporting local arts initiatives, and creating educational opportunities for youth through the joy and celebration of bhangra. We’re proud to be a part of this extraordinary initiative, which both matches and supports VIBC’s own vision for connectivity across cultures. Congratulations to the dedicated researchers, writers and publishers on the exciting occasion of the launch! For more information, please visit 100yearjourney.com.
