Our amazing animation & design community is all over the globe, but we meet and support each other in Vancouver.

Vancouver is like summer camp with a bustling local scene of breweries, coffee roasters, all kinds of arts & crafts, and so much amazing food. Don’t forget the mountains and ocean! It’s so beautiful and diverse here, and with all the programs, schools, and studios, it’s clear Vancouver loves animation too.


We will be hosting this year’s Blend at Performance Works on Granville Island, one of Vancouver’s hubs for arts and creativity.


Coming from afar? Welcome! You will like it here.

There is a hotel right next door to our venue or if you prefer Airbnb, check out neighbourhoods like Granville Island, Olympic Village and Kitsilano which are all nearby. Downtown and Yaletown are also easily accessible from our venue thanks to the Aquabus.

Vancouver is a very walkable city with bike and car share options, like Car2Go, Evo and Modo, and a decent public transit system.
