Below is a video of the Visual Arts –   CHILDREN LIVE DREAM HERE

The presence of children in our community is the focus of this show of photo works by students from grades 4 to 7. Photographer and lead artist Anne Marie Slater collaborated with the students on an interpretive walk of Princess Avenue and their photographs reveal the sky, the street, and the industrial side of Hastings Street re-linking the historic north/south connection to the waterfront.

The perspectives of inner city children are captured in photo stories and audio recordings, on view in the main gallery and in projections on the outside of Chapel Arts. Children Live Dream Here: Urban Landscapes is a community arts initiative with the participation of local organizations, community members and the support of the Festival and the City of Vancouver Great Beginnings program.

Sponsored by Strathcona Elementary School, Strathcona Community Centre Association and Chapel Arts, with funding from Port Metro Vancouver and Telus-Vancouver Community Board.

This was filmed by April Smith of AHA MEDIA on a Nokia N95 mobile cameraphone. April is passionate and skilled in making Nokia films by exploring mobile media production through the camera lens of a cellphone.

Roy speaks about horrible living conditions in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) SRO Hotel

June 29, 2009 Leave a comment

In this video, Roy ( who declined to be filmed ) speaks about the horrible living conditions which include bed bugs, rats and cockroaches that he and his partner face.

What is even more surprising is how his rent jumped $65 dollars extra  and how he lives on just $100 a month for support!!

Roy’s personal story is just one of the indications that gentrification and homelessness are becoming more apparent in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside
