Forever Young


Granville Island is a place of creativity, where many residents of Vancouver have familiar memories of childhood tied to its colourful setting. Children are fountains of creativity, with imaginations sprawling farther than their arms can reach, providing us with a refreshing perspective on how, together, we can build better communities for brighter tomorrows. Inspired by the youthful spirit of Granville Island, The Lantern City is excited to exhibit lanterns featuring artists who have captured the wonder and playfulness of children. From Indigenous artist of Canada like Jody Broomfield to Taiwanese Indigenous artist Pacake Taugadhu, kids from all over the world and their endless potential are acknowledged and celebrated.
