CELEBRATION OF OPPENHEIMER PARK for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Saturday Nov 6 2010

Community Celebration
CELEBRATION OF OPPENHEIMER PARK
Saturday November 6, 11am-2:30pm
Oppenheimer Park, 488 Powell

Join the community in a celebration of Chief Henry Robertson’s new carvings to be installed in Oppenheimer Park. Many trees fell during the devastating storm in Stanley Park four years ago, and with the help of Constant Arts Society and the DTES Heart of the City Festival, one of those large cedars has found a home in the Downtown Eastside. The cedar is being carved in two vertical halves by Chief Robertson, his son Henry Robertson Jr., local carvers and community youth. Join us for music, drumming, song, ceremony and celebration as we honour these two new carvings for the Downtown Eastside in the traditional territory of the Coast Salish.
Afternoon musical guests include: Sam George (Tse-at-sul-tuxch) of the Squamish Nation; the Snowy Owl Drummers with Dalannah Gail Bowen and Aboriginal women of the community; Oppenheimer Park’s Sunshine Choir led by Swallow Zhou; the Carnegie Village Choir conducted by Beverly Dobrinsky; and Patrick Smith with the Oppenheimer Drum Group.
This carving project and celebration is made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, City of Vancouver Great Beginnings Program, Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, Vancouver Moving Theatre, Constant Arts Society and the Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.  Everyone welcome! Free
