Engage: The Western Front hosts a free public conference called Urgent Imagination: Art and Urban Development. It aims to talk constructively about gentrification and the arts. In the spirit of full disclosure, the Western Front explains that this conference comes just as the organization received $1.5-million from the City of Vancouver in "community amenity contributions" that are intended to offset the socio-economic impact of the (under construction) 22-storey condo tower at the intersection of Main and Broadway. Expect panels and workshops with architects, artists, urban planners and city staff.

Oct. 2, 7-9 p.m. and Oct. 3, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Western Front (303 8 Ave E), free, front.bc.ca
