Local Boy Tatau
CONGRATULATIONS to Local Boy Tatau, this year’s HeART of Downtown Award! The HeArt of Downtown recognizes businesses who beautify our downtown community through art. Local Boy Tatau facilitated a collective of local artists to conceptualized and execute the mural project located at Broadway and 7th Street, along with other focal points in downtown.
Over the last 11 years, the Van-Tastic Award Ceremony has been a celebration of our small businesses and Vancouver’s community-centric values. We encourage you to check out the full 8-minute program highlighting our downtown community, click here!
2021 was a year full of recovery, expansion, and resilience. During this time, business owners remained community-centric—strengthening relationships with their neighbors and welcoming back the public. VDA kept the same pledge—to keep our downtown vibrant through creativity and collaboration.
