PAUSE Pavilion

1600 Whyte Ave (near Bard on the Beach Parking lot, Kitsilano)
Vancouver, BC V6J 1A9 Canada
Events at this Venue:

PAUSE is situated at the site of the village of sən̓aʔqʷ (pronounced Sun’ahk), currently known as Vanier Park, the location offers a spectacular backdrop of the North Shore mountains and downtown Vancouver. Housing a festival within the festival, PAUSE features free events every day from July 6th to July 15th.

Events at this venue—Gratitude Song, Mythical Vancouver, PAUSE in the Park and Tiffin Talks — include all-star performances, talks and dialogues, food, workshops, and visual art, featuring a wide range of local and international artists.

The PAUSE Pavilion’s unique design was the result of an international design competition organized by the non-profit school DBR (Design Build Research) for TED2017. The contest winner, designer Alsu Sadrieva in Russia, thoughtfully conceptualized PAUSE as an outdoor space to reflect, gather, and interact within.

Please refrain from wearing scented products while attending Indian Summer Festival events.
