We Are A
Family

As part of the vision to realize the dream of making Vancouver a Lantern City, six lanterns will be presented at English Bay (1800 Davie Street, Vancouver) as part of the Community Lantern project – “We Are A Family”. To echo the project’s artistic vision of “Family is everything “ with our festival partner, LunarFest Vancouver, LGBTQ2S+ artist Kent-Chan Kusalik, will be featured for the first time alongside Filipino-Canadian artists Mayo Landicho and Bert Monterona, and returning Squamish artist Cory Douglas, as all of them will join the Lantern City family.  “Lunar New Year in Vancouver isn’t just a celebration of an Asian tradition; it is an opportunity to bring our communities together regardless of who you are.  Only until we accept the importance of treating everyone as part of a big family, can our city truly celebrate our diversity as the city’s strength and vibrancy,” said Charlie Wu, the General Manager of The Society of We Are Canadians Too.
