On December 7, 2021, we hosted CityStudio North Vancouver’s fifth HUBBUB project showcase online. It was an exciting interactive event opening with a Slow Media video “Icy Creek” by Gregory Coyes. The over 150 attendees were then invited to watch the Launch Session, a welcome video including addresses by Mayor Linda Buchanan, Capilano President Paul Dangerfield and project introductions by some of the term’s City partners and faculty. Attendees where then invited to explore the project showcase to discover the brilliant ideas that students developed in response to the term’s opportunity questions. We were joined by the talented Emma Richard who joined us for the event to then present her graphic artwork representing the themes, ideas and highlights of Hubbub #5. See her work at bottom of page.

We are so proud of the 17 student groups from Summer and Fall 2021 that represented their classes by pitching their creative ideas and sharing hopeful and inspiring projects.

The Panel of Judges:

  • Tania Loken
    Tourism Instructor, Capilano University
  • Blair Underhill
    Planner 2, Transportation
    City of North Vancouver
  • Lisa Stirling
    Community & Partner Relations Specialist
    City of North Vancouver

Thank you to the participants who joined in to celebrate this term’s collaborations, participated in the Q&A sessions and voted for their favourite ideas. While not the same as gathering in person, we are grateful to each of you for helping us bring this digital event to life.

Congratulations to the winning teams!
