Coastal Lunar Lanterns

Jack Poole Plaza

Facing the waters, the Coastal Lunar Lanterns bring cultures together to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Featuring Indigenous artists from this area now known as Vancouver in a collaboration with C3 Society, and an Indigenous artist from Taiwan, the artworks are a physical and beautiful bridge across the oceans. At the iconic location of Jack Poole Plaza, through arts and culture, we are free to share our own stories in our own ways.

The Lantern City is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation). We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered on this land, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples whose arts and stories inspire us to bring communities together.
