W2 Belongs to Me Press Conference on City of Vancouver Locking out W2 Media Cafe, W2 Community and Indigenous Groups shut out at W2 Media Cafe in Vancouver

December 19, 2012 Leave a comment

As a pre-Christmas gift, on December 17 the City of Vancouver changed locks on the W2 Media Cafe in the Woodward’s Atrium.

Community groups are responding raising objections to loss of inclusive space in the Downtown Eastside. The 10,000 sq ft community-engaged media arts centre had been facing a controversial December 31 eviction notice.

The inner-city media hub is broadly recognized for incubating and launching programs and services with the Urban Indigenous community, and these groups are most affected by the locks being changed.

A Press Conference will take place at the Woodward’s Atrium on Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 at 11:00am.
