Bryan Pike has announced he is stepping down as Executive Director of Word Vancouver. Rebus Creative has been the producer for the Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair Society for 20 years, building and transforming it into a key event in Western Canada’s literacy and literary community. The festival has transformed from a one-day showcase in 1994 to a five-day celebration across Vancouver. Each year, Rebus Creative has introduced innovative new festival events, improved literacy outreach, increased participation, and showcased Vancouver’s unique artistic culture.
It is with a heavy heart that the board of directors acknowledge the passing of the torch and thank Bryan Pike and Rebus Creative for their hard work and vision over the years.
