Mutual Respect is a Coalition Vancouver comprehensive policy initiative to keep our
roadways clear, our commerce flowing and our residents safer. It has 3 primary
components:

ASSIST IN THE RELOCATION OF THE VANCOUVER ART GALLERY:

The relocation of the Vancouver Art Gallery has been an ongoing objective for
more than 10 years.Vancouver Art Gallery has long outgrown its current home on
Robson Street, which was a former provincial courthouse built in 1906 and
reconfigured in the 1980s to house the gallery. To date, more than 40M is still
needed in order for the relocation to happen. Coalition Vancouver will champion
the relocation of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Wai Young will leverage her
experience in both the government and community to assist the gallery in
achieving its financing goals.

AWARD BURSARIES TO ACCOMPLISHED ARTISTS:

To support the continued development of artists, Coalition Vancouver will award
$50,000 bursaries in the amount of $10,000 each to artists in the following
categories:
a) theatre;
b) music;
c) literature;
d) visual arts;
e) champion of the arts (professor, arts academy, non-profit arts program).
The recipients will be honoured in a city-organized gala that will showcase the
artistic talent in the community.

ENGAGE THE ARTISTS IN BEAUTIFYING THE CITY:

seek proposals from artists in the city in respect of projects to beautify the outdoor
spaces, buildings and structures in key areas of the city including Vancouver East
Side, and our important Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts among others.
