DTES CAN (DTES Community Arts Network)

http://www.DTESCAN.wordpress.com

Founded in 2003, DTES Community Arts Network brings together artists, residents, community agencies, and arts organizations to cultivate a vibrant and viable arts scene in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

Few neighbourhoods make as much noise as Vancouvers Downtown Eastside (DTES). Although much of the attention it attracts focuses on drug addiction, mental health, and poverty, it is also one of the most creatively-inclined areas of the city, as seen in its street art, numerous art galleries, scores of artists, demonstrations, and even the unruly culture animating its streets and alleyways. While other neighbourhoods struggle to define themselves in a rapidly changing city, the DTES boasts a community that knows who it is and isnt afraid to express it. DTES Community Arts Network strives to channel this creative power to make positive change in the neighbourhood by cultivating a viable and vibrant community arts sector.

DTES Community Arts Network emerged out of the 2003 celebrations commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Carnegie Centre and the historic role of the DTES as the Heart of the City. It is a network of individuals and community and professional arts organizations working through the arts to contribute to the economic, social, and cultural renewal of the DTES. As intense redevelopment transforms the area, DTES CAN aims to strengthen the DTES as a healthy, artistically vibrant, and culturally rich community where people with predominantly low incomes and from diverse lifestyles, abilities, and financial means feel at home.

DTES CAN is committed to providing opportunities for Downtown Eastside residents to experience the arts as aspiring and practicing artists, audience members, as a means of personal and collective expression, and to advocate on issues affecting the community. Using a cluster organizational model to bring artists and residents together, DTES CAN encourages participation, builds capacity, and supports, renews, and builds arts and related projects in the community to foster cultural redevelopment.
