If you happened to miss the festivities that made this year’s Arts Week one for the record books, relax and grab yourself a cup of coffee because here are some of last week’s most memorable moments.
- Coffee House
A Dubpeeg classic with a new, roomier, less stuffy venue. Hosted by the trifecta that was Lorenzo Tesler-Mabe, Julian Levy and Jack Carriere, the show was filled was plenty of laughs. Notable performances included, The Faraday Brothers EDM act (#SeasonsintheTent), a cover of The Police’s “Roxanne” by Ayla, Charlie and Jack Anderson and David Powell & Julian Levy’s comical message (in song) to the teacher’s.
2. Visual Art Show
The top floor of the school was transformed into an art gallery that was filled with many artistic pieces, a photography exhibit and the premiere of a collection of short films. While enjoying all of these visual pieces, the experience was accompanied by music by Ayla, Charlie and Jack.

3. Student Performances
We had many amazing individuals and ensembles such as the Jazz Band and Chamber Choir perform at recesses and in the mornings before classes began.
4. The Art Fair
One of the more interactive activities of the week included the Art Fair that happened on Friday. From photo booths, spray paint tattoos, pin making, sushi art and DIY duct tape bow-ties, all students of the school were able to leave with a token from the week.
5. Closing Ceremonies
The Vancouver Youth Choir wowed us with their powerful performances. They connected with the student body involving our own choir as well as the whole audience during a group sing-a-long of The Beatles, In My Life.
