Dear friends, family and fans of AHA MEDIA

We are very happy to share with you that AHA MEDIA online has turned 2 years! This joyous occasion is to be celebrated with some cake and champagne, so please enjoy with us!

We’ve had a full and very enriching year learning, growing, working, collaborating and being part of something greater in Vancouver and Downtown Eastside!

When AHA MEDIA works as  Fearless City Mobile project participants from W2 Community Media Arts Centre, we peer train others in our Downtown Eastside (DTES) neighbourhood on media literacy and help bridge the digital divide in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside, most recently through our DTES CAMP

AHA MEDIA is very proud and honored to be in the documentary film With Glowing Hearts

We are  proud to continue to grow everyday and help document/report  from social justice issues , community festivals and  social media events!

AHA MEDIA enjoys providing an independent and alternative perspective to general main stream media views. Through our new media devices and cameraphones, we hope to be a news resource for everyone who is interested in us.

We appreciate everyone and all the times we were able to help in providing our services!

We look forward to another great year with you!

Thanks very much! :)

AHA MEDIA is very proud to have their photo in the Vancouver Sun newspaper in “Arts take over Downtown Eastside – Heart of the City Festival shows off community culture and character” article by Graeme McRanor !!

To many people the Downtown Eastside is an intimidating place: a dangerous, dirty, drug-infested ‘hood patrolled by pimps, pushers, prostitutes and police.

But there are also poets, painters and patrons of the arts in the mix. And spend some time chatting with residents in the area’s animated streets and you’ll discover a tenacious camaraderie unmatched in the Lower Mainland.

Celebrating that community’s culture, heritage and distinct character, the seventh annual Heart of the City Festival — running from today to Nov. 7 — features 80 events at more than 25 venues throughout the neighbourhood. Festival artistic producer Terry Hunter likens it to an open house. And if that makes him a de facto sales agent, well, he knows every nook and cranny: as a DTES [Downtown Eastside] resident and executive director of the Vancouver Moving Theatre, Hunter has lived and worked in the area since 1975.

“It’s a great community with a great spirit,” he says. “It’s a community that’s always fought for its rights … there’s a quote in the program guide where one of the poets [Na, Megwich] says, ‘I love the Downtown Eastside community because of its beauty and its strength, its refusal to shut up and its insistence upon justice.’

AHA MEDIA is looking forward to an amazing 2010 DTES Heart of the City Festival!

With a focus on the rich and diverse communities of the Downtown Eastside, the seventh annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival celebrates the culture, heritage and distinct character of the   heart of Vancouver.

The festival features twelve days of cultural events, including cultural celebrations, outdoor festivities, processions, forums, workshops, discussions, history talks and history walks.

To celebrate and promote the spirit of our home community, the 2010 Festival theme is: “Downtown Eastside – Heart and Home.” The Downtown Eastside is the heart of the City of Vancouver and the home of choice for thousands of its residents.

The Festival takes inspiration from the words of Downtown Eastside resident Bud Osborn:
Our purpose is to live in community, and community is care, care for one another, care for those least able to care for themselves, care for all care in action.

2010 Festival highlights include: a community celebration at the new Oppenheimer Park club house; First Nations and Latin American days of cultural sharing; and a diverse array of exciting community showcases.

Program details will be posted on the website by 8 October 2010
