The Vancouver Art Gallery mounted a groundbreaking exhibit title WE:Vancouver: 12 Manifestos for the City, running from Feb. 12 to May 1, 2011. The show, says the VAG website, "includes the work of more than 40 Vancouver-based cultural producers" whose "impact on our perception of the city is broad and opens up alternate models for living and new possibilities for thinking about this place." This occasional series highlights a handful of the people and groups featured in the exhibit, including The Tyee itself.
