Pigeon Park Street Market in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) on Sunday Oct 13 2013

October 16, 2013 Leave a comment

Sunny breezy weather during Sunday Street Market had vendors and peer workers of the DTES Street Market Society enjoying a fun Thanksgiving  in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Roland Clarke, Coordinator says:

The first sunny day in weeks came to the DTES on Sunday.
We had very little police presence, and very few incidents. The market was packed with near record number of vendors and customers, and we had a film crew with AHA Media doing a promo piece for us.

One of our patron funders from the City of Vancouver – George Walker – came down to the market twice and had some very kind and supportive words for us.

The holiday spirit was in the air, lots of Halloween costumes and fun items were present. Lots of people were talking about upcoming Thanksgiving feasts.

We got a huge donation of hockey equipment that we could not sell, but come look for it next week.

It is on days like this that I have renewed faith in the DTES and its residents. Rain or shine, the market will continue. If we get a brief respite from the rain, a huge crowd returns to the square and fills this area with life.

We have 52 markets per year. This dwarfs any other festival in the city. In fact, I like to think of the DTES Street Market as the Iron Man of Vancouver Festivals. Always there, every Sunday, with virtually no funding and no support, the Market will soldier on. It embodies the spirit of the DTES – that against any hardship, any weather, any attacks, we will persevere.

Come down and buy a coffee or a pop any given Sunday, and support your neighbourhood at its finest.

Filming Promo video for Mothership Stories Society for their Indiegogo campagign to go to Magnetic North Festival

April 12, 2013 Leave a comment

A promo video for Mothership Stories Society  to go to Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa with a Indiegogo campaign was filmed recently by AHA MEDIA with ACCESS TV under Direction of Waterline Productions

Mothership Stories Society is a non-profit society that asks people to write the story of their mother’ lives. From these stories we have created theatre, books and an online Archive.(http://www.mymotherstory.org) We want to share and celebrate the extraordinary lives of ordinary women with the world.

My Mother’s Story, the theatrical version of our project was created by Marilyn Norry (actor, dramaturg and Mothership Artistic Director) and Jenn Griffin (award winning playwright and actor). Under commission from a professional theatre we custom make a script from lifestories written by women in a community about their mothers.  Help us share the extraordinary lives of ordinary women by getting us to the Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa!

Please donate to Mothership Stories Society: My Mother’s Story Indiegogo campaign to go to Magnetic North Festival in Ottawa!!
