The 9th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival
Wednesday 24 October to Sunday 4 November, 2012
Over 120 events at over 25 venues throughout the Downtown Eastside
On page 13 of the Festival Program guide, there is a writeup on AHA MEDIA
The Festival is thrilled to partner with the DTES’s AHA Media to provide social media coverage (video/photos/blog) of the Heart of the City Festival. AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
