ABOUT BIL VANCOUVER:
For those new to our scene, here’s a bit about why BIL exists: Vancouver is a community driven metropolis and the artists, innovators, movers and especially the shakers, power it’s beating heart. BIL events are powered the same way, being entirely participant driven and volunteer run. In these volatile times, it’s important to get out there, engage with your neighbours and talk about (even celebrate) the future.
