Inner City Economic Strategy event at W2 Media Cafe in Vancouver

September 22, 2012 Leave a comment

The Inner City Economic Strategy seeks to bring together the residents of the community, with other residents, businesses, service providers and all levels government. The City of Vancouver is committed to working with the community to create a comprehensive economic strategy which seeks to empower the residents of the Downtown Eastside. Unique populations have to be considered, women, Aboriginal, youth, immigrant and the aging population. This event is open to everybody who wants to contribute to taking

ownership over this strategy.

We know we have to collectively develop an ongoing strategy with projects that have real positive outcomes for the residents of the Downtown Eastside and inner-city neighbourhoods.

How do we build a sustainable community which enhances the local economy? What type of education, training and employment strategies do we envision? What mix of businesses can we collectively advocate for? How do we get a City of Vancouver procurement policy that supports our collective goals? What opportunities already exist that need nurturing and advancement? Who is already doing this work? How can you get active with social media for your own project, cause or business? Participate, learn tips!

Presenters from local businesses and interested groups. Lunch and organic will be provided.

Display tables showcasing efforts for inclusive economic development will be featured in the Woodward’s Atrium including Crosstown Pet, ALIVE, W2, Thru Haida EyesChindi Nation and many others.

We welcome others to this inclusive event!

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! :)
