Bring it in

RIP, outdoor season: time to focus on bringing those good vibes inside. For expert renovation advice, designer inspiration, innovative homewares and more, head over to the Interior Design Show (IDS) at the Vancouver Convention Centre from September 21 to 24. Local exhibitors include Green Theory Design (think architectural planters), modern lighting company Matthew McCormick Studio and the ethics-focused, artisan-crafted wares of Obakki.

Heat it up

Ahead of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30), there’s Come Toward the Fire—an Indigenous-led festival with an awesome lineup of live music, film screenings, workshops, food and shopping at UBC’s Chan Centre for the Performing Arts on September 17 and 18. Performers include Black Belt Eagle Scout, Mato Wayuhi and Tia Wood.
