It’s a start to a beautiful week! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and there’s so much happening in our beautiful city!

Here are 5 things happening in and around Victoria today!

Rick Rivet

What: Exploding with colour and a dreamlike state of representation, Rick Rivet’s solo exhibition captivates our imagination. It’s the feeling of forgetting something that’s just on the tip of your tongue. Like feeling the weight of an un-experienced history that draws you in. Working in his distinctive style in mixed media on canvas, this exhibition truly captures the multi-faceted sides of the artist to shine.

SOGI 123 Dance-in/Counter-Picnic
