ABOUT VAL NYE VAL NYE is the landmark event of Vancouver Art and Leisure Society, a radical artist-group devoted to presentation and advocacy. We mark the end of an incredible year working with hundreds of local artists with no discrimination of rank, intent, or artistic discipline. We are proud and honoured to share this space with an amazing and diverse audience who has perservered through oppression, political conservatism, and helped create this safe space for artists and audience alike long into the future. Together, let us welcome in a new year.
