Community Celebration
COMMUNITY DANCE with Marian Rose
Sunday November 7, 7pm-9pm
Ukrainian Hall, 805 E. Pender

The community dance is so popular and so much fun that it has become a festival tradition. This year we share the evening with Marian Rose, accordion player and dance caller, fiddler Jennie Bice and Mary Boulanger on piano. If you’ve never danced a step in your life, now is your chance to get together in musical celebration across traditions and generations. Follow the dance caller’s directions and you’ll be an expert in minutes! Marian Rose created the Community Dance Project to rejuvenate community dancing, together with the vibrant musical traditions that go along with it (www.marianrose.com). Dances may include contra, square or ethnic folk, and music will find it’s way from all over including the folk music of the Canadian prairies. Grab your friends, neighbours, the whole family, and head on down to this toe-tappin’ heartwarming ending for this year’s DTES Heart of the City Festival. Pay as you can

Association of United Ukrainian Canadians Community Concert & Supper for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Sunday Nov 7 2010

Community Celebration
ASSOCIATION OF UNITED UKRAINIAN CANADIANS COMMUNITY CONCERT & SUPPER
Sunday November 7, 3pm
Ukrainian Hall, 805 E. Pender

The AUUC is pleased to present their season opening concert for the closing afternoon of the Festival. Featuring all of their performing arts groups, the Barvinok Choir, the Vancouver Folk Orchestra and the Dovbush Dancers, the concert offers a welcoming atmosphere of Ukrainian traditions. Enjoy this afternoon of lively music, invigorating dance, colourful costumes, and an array of special guests including: a welcome song with Squamish elder Sam George; the ferocious and compelling flamenco music and dance of Kelty McKerracher and Celina Tinio, baile (dance), Juan de Marias, toque (guitar), and Maria Avila, cante (song); and the internationally renowned recording artists, gospel trio The Sojourners (Khari McClelland, Marcus Mosely and Will Sanders). The Festival is thrilled to welcome back Marcus along with his fellow songmates, accompanied by guitarist Paul Pigat. While it wouldn’t exactly be right to call The Sojourners a new act—given that each member of the group has been in the music business for around fifty years—the sound, energy and commitment they conjure any time they get together would be the envy of singers half their ages. Echoes of doo wop, R&B, country and blues weave together with gospel to create a unique sound that has all but vanished from today’s world, www.thesojourners.ca. “These guys are as authentic as the well-worn pews and well-used Bibles stationed in any Church welcoming the sounds of Gospel songs. Rich and textured voices that harmonize along a rolling sea of sound waves; The Sojourners take you on a gentle walk down the back alleys and pathways of the soul and have you cathartically ending up on the other side.” – AnEVibe.com
Stay after the concert for the hall’s delicious traditional Ukrainian Supper. Concert and supper $15. Be sure to book your tickets in advance for this very popular event. For tickets call 604-879-2089.

November 6, 2010 Leave a comment

Workshop
PRESERVING FOOD TRADITIONS
Saturday November 6, 1pm-4pm
radha yoga & eatery, 728 Main, 2nd floor

This fall, radha offers “Urban Meanings”—a unique series of interactive workshops for soul sustenance and inspiration in the city. Andrea Potter, chef at radha, shares her experiences and lessons learned in preserving traditional foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles. We will make a batch of community ‘kraut and discuss questions such as: How do I, a modern city-dweller, benefit from learning an ancient skill? What are the benefits of preserving food at home? How do I benefit from preparing food with a community? What is culture? Fermented foods are ‘cultured’ by a community of organisms. Join us in this fun, community-oriented discussion and take home a recipe and practical skill to get started in preserving your own food traditions! For more information: 604-605-0011 or www.radhavancouver.org. $40, please pre-register with a $15 non-refundable deposit. (5 seats pay as you can, pre-register)

CELEBRATION OF OPPENHEIMER PARK for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Saturday Nov 6 2010

Community Celebration
CELEBRATION OF OPPENHEIMER PARK
Saturday November 6, 11am-2:30pm
Oppenheimer Park, 488 Powell

Join the community in a celebration of Chief Henry Robertson’s new carvings to be installed in Oppenheimer Park. Many trees fell during the devastating storm in Stanley Park four years ago, and with the help of Constant Arts Society and the DTES Heart of the City Festival, one of those large cedars has found a home in the Downtown Eastside. The cedar is being carved in two vertical halves by Chief Robertson, his son Henry Robertson Jr., local carvers and community youth. Join us for music, drumming, song, ceremony and celebration as we honour these two new carvings for the Downtown Eastside in the traditional territory of the Coast Salish.
Afternoon musical guests include: Sam George (Tse-at-sul-tuxch) of the Squamish Nation; the Snowy Owl Drummers with Dalannah Gail Bowen and Aboriginal women of the community; Oppenheimer Park’s Sunshine Choir led by Swallow Zhou; the Carnegie Village Choir conducted by Beverly Dobrinsky; and Patrick Smith with the Oppenheimer Drum Group.
This carving project and celebration is made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, City of Vancouver Great Beginnings Program, Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, Vancouver Moving Theatre, Constant Arts Society and the Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.  Everyone welcome! Free

Opening Reception
The Oppenheimer Park
Community Art Show
IN OUR BACKYARD IS YOUR BACKYARD
Friday November 5, 6pm-9pm
Gallery Gachet, 88 E. Cordova    Exhibition November 5 to 28

It is an honour to include in the Festival the 3rd Annual Community Art Show. When the Oppenheimer Park Art Show began in 2008 it helped to bridge the community through the challenging transformations of a pre-Olympic city. Today, on the other side of redevelopment, Oppenheimer Park remains a resolute community of people upholding the Park’s vision as a place for art, education, recreation, health and healing. This art show features work by new, emerging and established artists that reflects the vibrant and creative community in and around the Park and offers a unique perspective into the heart and home of the Downtown Eastside community. For information: 604-687-2468 or www.gachet.org. Free
