Venue Accessibility

VIVO is located in the homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples in a warehouse space at 2625 Kaslo Street south of East Broadway at the end of E 10th. Transit line 9 stops at Kaslo Street on Broadway. From the bus stop, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight decline. The closest skytrain station is Renfrew Station, which is three blocks south-east of VIVO and has an elevator. From there, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight incline. There is parking available at VIVO, including wheelchair access parking. There is a bike rack at the entrance. The front entrance leads indoors to a set of 7 stairs to the lobby.

Wheelchair/Walker Access

A wheelchair ramp is located at the west side of the main entrance. The ramp has two runs: the first run is 20 feet long, and the second run is 26 feet. The ramp is 60 inches wide. The slope is 1:12. The ramp itself is concrete and has handrails on both sides. There is an outward swinging door (34 inch width) at the top of the ramp leading to a vestibule. A second outward swinging door (33 inch width) opens into the exhibition space. Buzzers and intercoms are located at both doors to notify staff during regular office hours or events to unlock the doors. Once unlocked, visitors can use automatic operators to open the doors.


There are two all-gender washrooms. One has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The other is a single room with a urinal and is wheelchair accessible: the door is 33 inches wide and inward swinging, without automation. The toilet has 11 inch clearance on the left side and a handrail.

To reach the bathrooms from the studio, exit through the double doors and proceed straight through the lobby and down the hall . Turn left, and the two bathrooms will be on your right side. The closest one has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The far bathroom is accessible.

About the 

c. diab is a musician from the west coast of canada. all thoughts are afterthoughts.


Andy Zuliani is an ambient musician, video artist, and writer; he lives in “Vancouver,” a colonial fiction located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. His work is deeply invested in modes of collective healing and care, and hopes to bring these about through immersive, communal experiences. He has performed and mounted installations at Vines Art Festival, at Deep Blue, at Active/Passive Festival, and online at outer spaces, a virtual performance space he co-runs with Max Ammo.


Midden (Evan Hardy) is a Vancouver based musician, artist and archaeologist, who uses modular synth, field recordings, and other instruments to create compositions inspired and shaped by the weighted complexities associated with working with the distant past – while living in the present. These compositions mirror the stratigraphic structure of middens. Midden has played at a number of festivals including Glasgow International (Glasgow, UK), Sled Island (Calgary, AB), Case-Tétte (Prince George, BC), Hexistential (Vancouver, BC), Neuztec (Victoria, BC) and Big Joy (Vancouver, BC).
