I am embarking on a social media experiment on Instagram called “Real Vancouverites”. Within each photo, there is a statement – or a declaration – or a suggestion of what it means to be a real Vancouverite.
The idea is to instill pride on the things that make us unique and great, whether you were born in Vancouver or have moved to Vancouver.
The hope is that it will make others think about some of the things that make this city special and are worth fighting for, to ensure that future Vancouverites get to experience these same things.
If anyone has ideas or thoughts on this, I’d love to hear them. Message me here, or check out my Instagram account @realvancouverites.
