The Caboto Series +

The Caboto Series + : Celebrating 150 years of Cultural Exploration and Engagement marks the community’s participation in the creation of our mosaic through a series of new partnerships, presentations and collaborative initiatives with the Vancouver professional arts and cultural sector. Designed to bridge and connect the arts and cultural community groups through Italian/Canadian themed co-presentations, productions and collaborative cultural presentations, the Caboto Series + is a continuation of the highly successful Caboto Series, launched in 2017. This year the Italian Cultural Centre (Il Centro) will present 7 productions and co-presentations over the 2018 calendar year  to highlight the Italian Canadian contributions to the multicultural fabric of the country.

The Caboto Series +: Celebrating 150 years of Cultural Exploration and Engagement program, as stated above, is a collaborative partnership initiative that highlights Italian culture within the context of Canada’s diverse cultural heritage.
