AHA MEDIA at Nokia Tweetup for Social Media Week Vancouver 2011

September 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Nokia sponsored a wonderful time for us at Cinema Restaurant in Vancouver for Social Media Week Vancouver 2011

Tom Hall and Kathy Garfield welcomed us warmly to our fun filled evening!   Connecting with old friends like Daniel of Nokia Love blog and Shane Gibson made our time extra special!

Highlight of the evening was when our dear friend Miraj Khaled was the lucky winner of a fabulous Nokia N8 for being the eighth person to arrive at our tweetup!

Nokia truly connects people! We had a very memorable evening socializing with our friends :)

Thanks Nokia for sponsoring such a wonderful event during Social Media Week 2011 in Vancouver!

AHA MEDIA and Fearless City Mobile was pleased to celebrate the New year at W2 Lights NYE 2011 in W2 Storyeum – Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Below is a photo and video of Irwin Oostindie, Executive Director of W2 Community Media Arts welcoming all of us to W2 Lights NYE

Irwin Oostindie, Executive Director of W2 and his welcome to W2 Lights NYE:

“So we are here at W2 Storyeum, for a very major event with W2 Lights NYE.. It’s interesting, W2 and all of our volunteers and crew have created a major event for New Year Eve 2011 and I guess our goal is to kick butt on the “No Fun City” thing…

You know this is an amazing experience where 10 different community groups, cultural crews who routinely produce their own events especially around live audio visual productions and electronic music..

It’s a particular part of the cultural scene in Vancouver and they’ve all come together under one roof in a city owned building at W2 Storyeum and it’s exciting to be able to host that much talent, creativity with communities all working together and say we want to do something together,

We want to celebrate Vancouver, celebrate culture and do it together to have a beautiful large facility with the City of Vancouver, residents can gather, is very exciting for W2, it’s an honor for us to be able to host”


W2 LIGHTS NYE – an unprecedented collaboration between Vancouver’s underground music communities in one large public space at W2 Storyeum, bringing back the light, and welcoming the new year. Five rooms filled with music, video, interactive media art installations, and performance. Plus participants will enjoy complimentary hors d’ouevres from W2 Cafe, a silent auction of cool gifts and artworks, a secure coat check, fresh air conditioners, and special refreshments, with their new and old friends! Conveniently located near Vancouver’s transportation hub (Seabus, Skytrains, numerous bus routes), car parking upstairs for designated drivers, all in the heART of the city.

This event is a special fundraising initiative to help W2 build an inner-city media centre for Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside – across the street – within the Woodward’s heritage building scheduled. Take a moment and see what we’re working on:

Celebrate 2011 at W2 LIGHTS NYE in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

W2 has tallied the unused W2 LIGHTS NYE tickets remaining after meeting our sponsor, media and artist commitments. Rather than releasing these at the door, we are announcing a purchase plan that gives twice!
As a largely volunteer-run Downtown Eastside (DTES) organization, we want to bring more benefits from what has become Vancouver’s hottest NYE ticket. We have decided to release these remaining tickets today, rather than making them available at the door which would cause uncertainty and lineups. No tickets will be available at the door.  We want to maximize the benefits from the overwhelming demand for tickets, and hereby assist DTES charitable work at the same time.

  • We are releasing these tickets online at 4:00pm PST on Dec 23rd at http://w2lights.eventbrite.com/ and for a minimum $100 payment, one ticket will be made available to the purchaser and one to a DTES residents who faces economic barriers to attending. With this plan we help more people and bring a broader cross-section of people to celebrate bringing back the light with W2 LIGHTS NYE. Proceeds from this sale will also directly support four grassroots DTES organizations working for positive change by and for DTES residents. Making these tickets available to interested people will make a real and direct impact on community organizing in the DTES.
W2 would like to thank all of the artists and producing crews for participating in this major cultural event that raises crucial funds for W2 Community Media Art Society. Shout outs to: Beats Without Borders, Integrated Grime Unit, Bass Coast Project, Wet Mi Down, Low Indigo, Perception, Moo Crew, SHAHdjs, Lighta!, Ting!, as well as  75 volunteers helping produce the event.

Give your loved one the credit they deserve, make them a Producer!

When this project started there were only two people involved, Andrew and I, but now two years later, our family of producers has swelled to around 200 and we’ve got great news for everyone.  Having just submitted our most recent cut of the film to SXSW in Austin TX, we’re very happy to announce that we’re opening presales for the film on the site, with the official launch having been set for February 12, 2011.  We’ll mark the occasion with a special screening of the film in Vancouver where you’ll be able to come pick up your copy on DVD or USB key, with traditional shipping options available to those who can’t make it.   We’re also very excited about our exclusive WGH Producer’s Package which we think is a thoughtful alternative that some people on your list will definitely appreciate receiving this holiday season.

This handsome package includes:

  • An official Producer’s certificate and name in the film’s credits
  • A certificate confirming your $5 contribution to the construction of a wireless mesh network in the Downtown Eastside
  • A ticket to the February 12th, 2011 screening and afterparty at W2
  • One copy of the completed film on DVD or USB

To show our appreciation for the support you’ve already provided, we’re giving all existing producers a 10% discount off any purchases you make on the site, so don’t miss this limited time opportunity to share your involvement with this project with your friends and family.

Thanks for everything,

Jon Ornoy
Producer
