Minnekhada as Muse


We seek to unite nature and creative groups through the artistic interpretation of Minnekhada’s beauty in its many forms.

“Minnekhada as Muse” Songwriting Project

Presented by the Minnekhada Park Association, with assistance from Metro Vancouver Regional Parks and the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks Foundation.

This project is an excellent opportunity for up and coming songwriters who want to receive some great advice and mentoring from some very experienced local songwriters and meet other talented people from the area, all while enveloped in, and inspired by,  a beautiful natural surrounding.

2024 Plans

While we won’t be hosting a performance event this year, we will be having a couple of songwriter meetups at the park in 2024. The next one is on April 14, 2024 (see below) and here. We are currently accepting waitlist entries for this event. Please contact Steve at secretary@minnekhada.ca if you are a local songwriter and would like to join our group. You can also request to join our Facebook group here.


2023 Event

Muse Playlist

Our live event was held June 11, 2023 at the historic Minnekhada Lodge. There were many amazing performances!! All the performers have received an edited and mastered version of their performance. Many have chosen to allow us to add their performance to this playlist and others have provided remixed versions. We hope you enjoy these original songs and can hear the echoes of Minnekhada’s Muse in their words and music.
