These April Events Are No Joke

Don’t be a fool this April: hit up these great new Design Sundays workshops at the Museum of Vancouver.

The Museum of Vancouver is answering all of your design questions this April with its four-session Design Sundays workshop series. Each workshop covers a Vancouver-specific design and city topic, and can be taken all together as a whole series or separately as individual sessions. The series is meant to introduce discussion about Vancouver design to the people it affects most, everyday Vancouverites.
