You Are Here celebrates the North Shore Region, including the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver. This land is part of the unceded territories of  the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation), and all of the images in the calendar are inspired by this place. This exhibition shows the original artwork chosen for the 2024 You Are Here Calendar.  The images are also featured on folded art cards. Proceeds from sales of the calendar and art cards support the North Shore Culture Compass, a free, online map that helps the public explore a the diverse cultural landscape of arts, heritage, and stories that the region offers. The Culture Compass celebrates life on the North Shore.

We are very grateful to the talented artists who have donated the use of their art for this calendar.  These artists are inspired by their surroundings and have created works of art that allow you to imagine that You Are Here.
