Fair in the Square: Celebrating together in the Inner City

Sunday, May 27th, 11 am – 2 pm

W2 and AHA MEDIA are pleased to be at the 6th Annual Fair in the Square!

Alongside dozens of social enterprises, artists, and community organisations, terrific local bands and musical artists will donate their talents to entertain from the Victory Park stage while a delicious BBQ including cupcakes, beverages and more are served up by the dedicated faculty, staff and students from Vancouver Community College’s Culinary Arts program.

Fair-goers are encouraged to wander the park and visit the tables set-up by a diverse range of social enterprises and neighbourhood non-profit community organizations providing an opportunity to chat and reach out to a network of neighbours, connect with services available, and admire talent coming from the inner city.
All of this is possible with the support of literally hundreds of volunteers who prepare, staff and strike the Fair site in addition to the donation of food, drinks and other goodies from generous corporate partners.

From What’s Your Status

Together we can radically stop the spread of HIV and AIDS through identifying participants who are positive. The earlier you learn your status and start treatment you significantly lower the risk of transmitting this disease to someone else.

Finding out your HIV status is positive used to be thought of as a death sentence. This is no longer the case because of pioneers in medical research like Dr. Julio Montaner and the BC Center for Excellence in HIV/AIDS who have developed a highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for people living with the disease that can prolong healthy living for a lifetime and reduces the risk of HIV transmission. Along with this ground breaking research, a Point of Care test (similar to a test a diabetic would take) has the ability to screen for the virus in 60 seconds.

We are initiating a HIV testing, treatment and education campaign in the downtown eastside community (DTES). This program is a pilot project linking peers within our DTES to information and resources that they need and are available to them within the PHS programs that currently exist as well as special summer outdoor events.

Our objectives are to test and educate as many people from the DTES community as HIV screening is an important part of preventative health care for everyone. We also intend to link people living with a HIV positive status to all the resources and support that are available to them in their community.
