About Building Caring Communities: Building Caring Communities is an initiative that shows how we all are changed when we share our gifts with others. It is a miraculous story of how a small group of staff from the social service sector began having different types of conversations. This has resulted in people becoming active citizens, having more friends, and helping neighbourhoods come more alive.

About BACI: Burnaby Association is an organization that offers services for people with intellectual disabilities and their families in Metro Vancouver. The series fits with BACI's mission to build stronger, more inclusive neighbourhoods and friendships while enjoying some great entertainment.

About Can You Dig It: Can You Dig It supports communities to create inclusive and welcoming food-growing gardens where individuals from all backgrounds and life experiences can learn, share, grow and contribute to the betterment of their communities. We grow more than food; we cultivate relationships and foster a true sense of belonging. Together we can all plant a seed!

About In the House: In The House has a mission of building community through arts and culture and transforming homes into intimate cultural spaces where living rooms and backyards are given over to shows that feature all genres of music, dance, theatre, circus, magic, puppets, storytelling, spoken word, cabaret and more.
