The Vancouver Quiz Show - Happy Hour Event

Thursday, March 24, 2016 - 18:00

Grab a drink and test your knowledge of Vancouver's most pressing issues.

Drawing upon the data and map materials developed for the Your Future Home exhibition at the Museum of Vancouver, this “pub style" quiz show will test people's knowledge of  Vancouver. Members of the audience can play as individuals, or team up to answer questions - created by Data Curator Andy Yan - on housing affordability, urban density, transportation, and public space. (max 8 per team). Hosted by Peter Marriott, Social Planning Analyst for the City of Vancouver. 

These questions evoke the central tenant of this exhibition and concerns about our city.  The past, present, and future challenges and opportunities developing and shaping the issues of affordability, livability, and sustainability will be present. While original and creative (if not totally accurate) answers are entertained from contestants, the show invites the audience to learn more about their City and the critical issues framing its future as a home for present and future generations of Vancouverites.

Date: Thursday, March 24

Time: Bar opens at 6pm; Quiz Show begins at 7pm.

Tickets:  $15 adults; $11 Students & Seniors; Free for MOV Members. Tickets still available at the door. Access to Your Future Home included with admission.
