Win a Cruise of False Creek!


If False Creek were a person, how would you describe it?

In many cultures around the world, people see the natural elements around them as ancestors, relatives, or in words like “more than human“. It’s a kind of kinship – a warm regard. Friendliness. A comforting sense of place.

Here’s an opportunity for you to express your attachment to False Creek – by capturing its essence in word, song, photography – or in any way that inspires you!

If you could talk to it, what would you say, sing, or whisper?

Take out your phone, put it on selfie mode, think about what the watery part of False Creek means to you, and just say it. Sing it, dance it , or recite poetry!
