Ackery’s Alley is located in a working laneway behind the Orpheum Theatre and follows the success of the first More Awesome Now laneway, Alley Oop.

Together with key partners including HCMA Architecture + Design (HCMA), the City of Vancouver’s VIVA Vancouver Program and Vancouver Civic Theatres, the DVBIA raised money through a Kickstarter campaign to fund FIELD, the key piece and focal element of the Ackery’s Alley redesign.

FIELD is a permanent, interactive art installation by international artist Alex Beim, founder of Tangible Interaction. FIELD’s immersive experience senses a person’s presence and their movements, and responds by creating a light and soundscape which gives the participant the opportunity to create their own unique composition.

Along with the FIELD installation, the laneway development will include red velvet paint, artful signage, gold paneling and reflective metals, fostering social connection and social engagement within our community.
