Join us at our Sip and Paint! Unleash your inner Picasso while supporting a great cause – our 14th annual INCLUSION Art Show & Sale coming up this October! While you’re sipping on some refreshments, a professional instructor will guide you through a painting theme which you will then turn into your own unique masterpiece.
Tickets are only $30 and include refreshments, snacks and all painting supplies. We’ll also have a cash bar and pizza by the slice. No painting skills necessary, just a fun evening that’s almost more about the party than the paint!
Painting theme: TBD! Will post photos shortly, stay tuned.

Niall & Marcus Talk About Sh!t Niall Likes
JOIN NIALL MCNEIL, MARCUS YOUSSEF, AND FRIENDS FOR AN EVENING OF GOOD TIMES TALKING ABOUT SH!T NIALL LIKES.
Presented by New Westminster Arts Services
Created and performed by Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef, directed by Chelsea Haberlin. Music by Veda Hille. Special guests TBA. In Development.
Produced by Neworld Theatre, created with the support of the Boca Del Lupo artist residency program.
Niall McNeil likes to talk and Marcus Youssef is one of his favorite people to talk to. They live around the corner from each other and have known each other since Niall was 18 years old. Niall’s got an opinion about pretty much everything, and he’s funny, too. Niall and Marcus talk about his friends, writing, music, photographs and videos, acting, the grocery store Niall works at, his homemade CSI videos, romance, Beauty and the Beast – all the sh!t Niall likes. It’s a conversation that changes every time they have it. It also questions who in our culture we allow to speak, and who we expect to listen.
Niall is a professional actor and Marcus is a well-known Canadian playwright. Over the last 10 years they have devised a way to write together and, working with musician Veda Hille, written two big shows: Peter Panties (PuSh Festival) and King Arthur’s Night (Luminato, National Arts Centre, PuSh Festival). These groundbreaking productions put the vision of a neurodiverse artist at the centre of their creation, offering audiences a perspective on iconic stories unlike any they have ever seen.
