North Vancouver, B.C. April 7, 2020 – In response to COVID-19, CityStudio North Vancouver, a joint initiative between Capilano University and the City of North Vancouver, is honouring its commitment to showcase the top student projects this term by holding a virtual HUBBUB next week. The event, which was scheduled to take place at North Vancouver City Hall, will now be open to a wider public audience as a live online event 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., April 16, 2020.
“With other CityStudios in the Lower Mainland opting to cancel or re-imagine their end-of-term HUBBUB, our virtual event is an opportunity for more people to engage with CityStudio and to highlight the great work of our students” says Adele Therias, CityStudio North Vancouver’s Project Lead. “We are very excited to celebrate the students’ innovative ideas, even under these extraordinary circumstances.”
CityStudio North Vancouver is an innovation hub where CapU students work collaboratively with staff at the City of North Vancouver and other partner organizations, such as the North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission and the North Vancouver RCMP, to co-create programs to make a more vibrant, sustainable and healthy City.
The initiative launched in fall 2019 with three Business courses and one Tourism course taking part. This term CapU’s CityStudio initiative doubled in size and diversity with Sociology, Psychology, Public Administration, Art History and Design courses also involved.
The CityStudio model of city-campus collaborations started in 2011 in Vancouver with a partnership between the City of Vancouver and Simon Fraser University, and has expanded across Canada and into Australia and Europe.
