DJs take song requests, get the party started, and according to disco band Indeep, save lives on the dance floor. At School of Remix, fledgling DJs learn the techniques needed to become sought-after party-starters. Under the tutelage of popular local DJs, students practice music mixing, spinning, and scratching behind a record’s ear on the school’s high-quality equipment, all while developing their own creativity and inimitable style.

When Alfonso Arnold took time off from touring Canada as a musician, he planned to focus on business and marketing. But when a colleague asked him to snap a quick shot of a local artist, Arnold realized he had found a new artistic passion: photography. Since capturing that spur-of-the-moment image, he's crafted a diverse portfolio that encompasses fine art, commercial work, and a wide variety of subjects. He also teaches at Vancouver's LaSalle College of Design, imparting the photographic technique that's inspired the University of British Columbia and Amnesty International to commission his work. Arnold himself has been featured on CBC and MTV Canada. As the instructor and founder of Photography Cures, he follows a philosophy that hinges on giving constructive critiques and paying close attention to students' skills so he can tailor each workshop and curriculum to individual needs. Not content to merely lecture, Arnold takes students on photo walks so they can get hands-on experience and try out their new skills.

Friends, business partners, and educators Karen Lorena Parker and Katherine Keating had a shared vision of holistic, community-based learning. Combining Parker's 15 years of classroom experience and Keating's knack for program design and entrepreneurship, they created DreamIndigo Society, where students can incorporate the arts and sciences into a comprehensive, experiential learning adventure. While youngsters conduct science experiments in summer camp or develop leadership skills that will come in handy when leading a successful debate team or founding a successful debate team made up of neighbourhood dogs, they're also stealthily becoming well-rounded members of society.

Talented filmmakers at this film school teach courses that hinge on hands-on involvement. Single- and multi-session classes cover everything from screenwriting and editing to motion graphics, and venture beyond documentary making with lessons in drama and still photography. While practicing techniques and pole-vaulting on boom mics like the pros do, students use a combination of their own gear and gear they've rented from the school. In addition to firsthand filmmaking experience, documentary students get hands-on experience, partnering with community charities to create short films used for education, outreach, and fundraising.

Running for three weeks every January and February, the PuSh Festival brings more than 100 performances and events to Vancouver and showcases new and innovative theatrical pieces. Performed by award-winning Mexican touring ensemble Teatro Linea de Sombra, Amarillo weaves a mesmerizing tale of a lost man travelling between Mexico and Amarillo, Texas. The performance makes use of multimedia imagery to add dimension and keep audiences from becoming distracted by neighbouring gum chewers or compulsive aria singers. The Idiot, one of Vancouver magazine's entertainment picks, presents Fyodor Dostoyevsky's acclaimed novel in a musical format, produced by Neworld Theatre and Vancouver Moving Theatre. The play tells the story of the preternaturally good-willed Prince Myshkin and the chaos he unleashes on the circles of Russian society. Performed on a slowly rotating stage, El pasado es un animal grotesco —Spanish for "the past is a grotesque animal"—follows the lives of four young Argentineans. Taking place across a ten-year span, the show demonstrates how the characters enter adulthood while dealing with both their country's economic crisis and the need to crisply project everything they say.
