Remarkable Women – Honouring Women from our Vancouver Communities
In 2008, The Vancouver Park Board established the Remarkable Women poster series to honour local women who have made significant contributions to arts, culture, sports, and community in Vancouver.
Each year, nominations and stories are collected and shared, then a selected group of 12 women representing diverse backgrounds, abilities and experiences are featured on posters. These posters highlight the important role each woman play in our communities.
The posters, which get displayed in community centres, schools, and libraries throughout Vancouver, are a unique way to highlight the important role women play in our daily lives.
Every year these women are also honoured at a public reception timed to coincide with International Women’s Day – March 8.
The theme for 2014 is: The Year of Reconciliation.
