About Us

Quirke
Quirke goofy group photo 2 2104-15Quirk-e began as a grassroots writing group in 2006 – a joint initiative between QMUNITY Generations and local writer Claire Robson. The group was quickly adopted in its entirety into the Arts, Health, and Seniors’ Project, managed by the Vancouver Park Board. It became an independent organization in 2013, and is currently funded by its community partners Britannia Community Service Centre and QMUNITY Generations.
