September 21, 2011 is a memorable day. A diverse gathering celebrated the official opening of W2 Media Cafe and the Concrete Park music and break dance sessions.

Many thanks for entertainment to The Hastings Set who provided the music and the Hip Hop and B-Boys breakdancers. Also many thanks to the W2 volunteers, board and staff.

Mayor Gregor Robertson cut the ribbon. Also in attendance were  Councillors Ellen Woodsworth, Heather Deal and Andrea Reimer, developer Ian Gillespie and architect Gregory Henriqez. First Nation welcome by ethnobotanist/media artist Cease Wyss while Magnus Thyvold represented the W2 board while Irwin Oostindie was MC.

The social network is replacing the broadcast network as the place where the world gets its news. From the Ukraine to the Mid East and everywhere in between, people are turning on to new ways of tuning in, and joining this emerging media democracy. With Glowing Hearts is a film about Social Media in action; its power to represent, inspire and break down the digital divide.

In February 2010, the Winter Olympics stormed through Vancouver, along with 5,000 international media assigned to cover the Games. At these Games, record numbers of residents, activists and fans used their blogs, video-streaming cellphones and the Internet to connect, engage and tell the story like never before. Centered on an unlikely initiative coming out of the city’s most impoverished and maligned neighborhood to create the Games’ first dedicated Social Media center, the film offers viewers an exclusive glimpse into a potent melding of technology, activism and passion

“With Glowing Hearts” – Screening this Saturday Feb 12, 2011

This Saturday, the Wait is Over!

Though it’s doubtful that any of you have been waiting as long for this day as Andrew and I, we hope that you’re equally excited.  We can’t wait to finally present the film to everyone and have been overwhelmed by the amount of interest we’ve had so far since announcing the screening a few weeks ago.  If you’ve already signed up on our Eventbrite page, great, but if you haven’t don’t despair because you might still be able to get in just by showing up (or join us for the afterparty at W2).  We know that there are lots of other great Olympic related events going on that day, but we hope that you’ll include us in your schedule.

Here are the details:

  • Saturday February 12th, screening @ 7pm – please arrive early (1/2 hr) to ensure you get a seat and that we can start on time
  • After the film, a Q+A with the filmmakers
  • Afterparty (19+) at W2, the first official event in their new space in Woodward’s!
  • Food supplied by Nuba
  • Screening Address – 149 W Hastings (enter off Cordova) SFU Woodward’s Goldcorp Center for the Arts

We’ll also be hosting our friends from W2, Hope in Shadows, Megaphone Magazine and OpenMedia.ca, as well as raising money for the construction of a wireless mesh network in the DTES

Reserved tickets will be held until 15 minutes before showtime and then released on a first come – first served basis.

If you miss this screening, keep your ears open for other opportunities throughout the coming year, and we’ll keep you posted as well
