2018 Chefs Table Danvee Kwok 800

Join VCC alumnus Danvee Kwok for an evening of spectacular fare. Danvee's culinary career began with the Glowbal Restaurant Group restaurants, where she moved quickly from line cook to sous chef. She then took the opportunity to be part of the opening team of The Flying Pig Yaletown and Gastown. Recently Danvee has joined the culinary teams as sous chef at Torafuku and Royal Dinette. She loves cooking foods that are nostalgic to her, such as flavours reminiscent of growing up in Hong Kong. Or, her first trip to Japan with family, where the aromas of dashi and grilled fish filled the hallway every morning. These are a few things that contributed to her style of cooking and passion for food.

Your ticket includes a five-course, fixed menu with optional wine pairings.

The Chef’s Table Guest Chef Series was initiated in November 2017 as a means to showcase VCC alumni and the culinary arts and hospitality programs, and to raise funds for the VCC Foundation.

This staged reading does not disappoint! Proving that great entertainment never goes out of style, the presentation of LoveLoss and What I Wore by award-winning screenwriters and authors Nora and Delia Ephron (based on the book by Ilene Beckerman) comes to Presentation House Theatre  stage, for two  evenings only.
Like a long heart-to-heart with your best friend, this intimate and engaging collection of stories meanders from musings over wedding-day attire to a rant about loathing a purse and everything in between. Odes to first bras, cowboy boots, and outfits that made our mothers cringe, LoveLoss and What I Wore evokes funny memories and poignant stories about tyrannical dressing rooms, painful heels, comfy Birkenstocks and having to choose between the two!
 
Love, Loss, and What I wore is a fundraiser  supporting of Vancouver Community College’s (VCC) Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), Visually Impaired (VIP), ASL and Deaf Studies, and Interpreting Services (IS) departments. Funds raised from the ticket sales of this performance, and the rummage sale following the performance will go directly towards scholarships for Deaf, hard of hearing, and visually impaired students.

2018 Chefs Table - Jefferson 800

VCC alumnus Jefferson Bueno will be creating an evening of deliciousness. You might recognize Jefferson as the culinary face of VCC's "Make Your Mark" campaign or from the video, The Master & the Prodigy that featured Jefferson and his instructor, Chef Ysabel Sukic.

Jefferson currently resides in Victoria, B.C. working as a chef catering for over 200 people at one of the provinces largest childcare centres. He devotes his spare time to two of his favourite hobbies - foraging local wild food, and the science behind cooking such as molecular gastronomy.

"I believe that working directly with kids and giving them the opportunity to try a variety of different ingredients at an early stage will promote a healthy lifestyle and food culture for them as they grow to appreciate food." - Jefferson Bueno

The Chef’s Table Guest Chef Series was initiated in November 2017 to showcase VCC alumni, our culinary arts and hospitality programs, and to raise funds for future equipment needs and student bursaries and scholarships.

You'll enjoy a five-course, fixed menu with optional wine pairings. Seating is limited, purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Join VCC in supporting the work of the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre


Herstory-in-focus-2018-600


The Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (DEWC) presents the third annual HERSTORY IN FOCUS, hosted at the Vancouver Art Gallery. HERSTORY raises support and awareness for the work of the Centre, celebrating the strength and resilience of women in our community. As the night's highlight, women of the Centre perform a live fashion show as an expression of style and empowerment.


This year, the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre commemorates our 40 year anniversary, with a special focus on our meal program, and its long-term support sustaining and nourishing women from the Centre's inception. The theme this year is 'inner essence: highlighting the inner power and unique personalities of women.'

HERSTORY aims to raise $50,000 for the drop-in centre and meal program, providing over 500 meals daily to women. As the sole low-barrier drop-in space in the Downtown Eastside, DEWC provides invaluable sanctuary to women in a highly marginalized community, with the meal program serving as the entry point to the Centre and a continuum of care. 

Many VCC departments (including fashion, hair design, makeup, and graphic design) are volunteering their time to support this event. Join us at HERSTORY IN FOCUS in supporting the work of the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre and elevating women's voices, stories, and strength.

Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters

Add it to your calendar

Date Day Time Room Location
- 11:59 PM

 

Honouring families and communities impacted by the residential school system


On September 28, VCC will observe Orange Shirt Day. We encourage everyone to wear an orange shirt in the spirit of reconciliation and to show their support of families and communities impacted by the residential school system. 

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, B.C., in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

The concert will feature one of Canada's top latin-jazz drummers, Raphael Geronimo, Latin-jazz specialist and VCC alumna Niho Takase on piano, as well as VCC Music Department Leader, Laurence Mollerup on bass.

John Korsrud is the recipient of the 2012 City of Vancouver Mayor's Arts Award, the 2015 Canada Council Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award, and is the leader of the 18-piece new music/ jazz ensemble, The Hard Rubber Orchestra, a group he formed in 1990. In 2010, John performed on his own trumpet concerto, Come to the Dark Side, at New York’s Carnegie Hall, commissioned and performed by The American Composers Orchestra. John's diverse playing experiences has seen him play with international improvisors such as George Lewis, Anthony Braxton, Barry Guy and Kenny Wheeler, as well as The Vancouver Symphony and Vancouver rock bands such as 54-40 and DOA.
