About Us

Ripple Effect Arts and Literature Society (REAL) is a federally incorporated charitable organization that was founded in Vancouver, Canada in 2005. Our mission is to support programs and activities that contribute to the development and appreciation of the arts, culture and environment in Canada, with a focus on the province of British Columbia.

We now also offer special event planning, promotion and social media services to assist Vancouver-area cultural and educational organizations with audience development and network building. See Ripple Out to find out how we can help your organization’s events run smoothly and reach more people.
