The Italian Cultural Centre, or Il Centro, has been an essential part of Vancouver’s cultural landscape for more than three decades. It opened in 1977 when its founding members, 13 existing Italian Associations, came together “to promote and share Italian culture, values and heritage with all communities.”
They have since grown to more than 700 member families and regularly welcome individuals and groups from across the city. Whether for their exceptional catering and banqueting facilities, their language classes or their breadth of cultural activities, Il Centro is one of the most cherished event venues in Vancouver and a destination for those who appreciate authentic, cultural activities. Through their collective love of art, food, wine, design, film, music and literature, they proudly share their culture with their community, and welcome all who wish to be part of their vibrant destination in Vancouver.
At Il Museo, their focus is community partnerships with fine arts and fine craft organizations.. Exhibitions pertaining to textile, fine crafts, sculpture, painting are featured.
