Mini Fall Fair for 9th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Monday Oct 22, 2012

PRESERVE THIS: Stories, Food, Culture, Community Dinner
Monday October 22, 6pm – 9pm
W2 Media Café, 111 W. Hastings
Mini Fall Fair 3pm – 6pm
Woodward’s Atrium

In many ways, stories, food and culture go together. Through the stories we share over preparing and eating food we not only preserve the food, we preserve our culture and our histories. As part of W2’s Community Dinner Dialogue series Preserve This: Stories, Food, Culture is an evening of fall markets, food, friends and storytelling. Come early to explore the mini fall fair with fun demos and jam competitions in the Atrium. After we will listen to stories from special guests over a healthy local dinner made by Chef Karen McAthy of W2 Media Café. Proceeds
go toward W2 Media Café’s community education programs on healthy eating and local food security.

Dinner tickets $15 at W2 Media Café or www.w2mediacafe.org.



This event was on a Pre-Festival Day of  the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

The 9th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 

Wednesday 24 October to Sunday 4 November, 2012

Over 120 events at over 25 venues throughout the Downtown Eastside


On page 13 of the Festival Program guide, there is a writeup on AHA MEDIA

The Festival is thrilled to partner with the DTES’s AHA Media to provide social media coverage (video/photos/blog) of the Heart of the City Festival. AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
