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 one year anniversary of the games is fast approaching but the effects that it had on our local culture are still largely unexplored. This documentary
After the screening there will be beverages and celebrations at W2
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:
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
