      Those who love—and miss—the annual Eastside Culture Crawl will appreciate First Saturdays Open Studios. Getting a taste of what local artists and makers are getting up to in neighbourhoods across Vancouver and the rest of the Lower Mainland, First Saturdays Open Studios is a monthly self-guided event that invites the public to visit artists in their creative spaces.

      This Saturday (February 3), artists open their studios from noon until 5pm in several locations across the city, from Railtown to Fraserhood.
