CARVING DEMONSTRATION for 10th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2013 in Vancouver on Oct 22 2013

Cultural Sharing

Tuesday October 22, 9am – 4pm
Aboriginal Front Door, 384 Main

Anywhere you wander in the Downtown Eastside, you will see artists carving wood, bone, stone or who knows what. In recognition of the importance of carving in our community, the Front Door is hosting a day-long demonstration with carvers who are residents of the Downtown Eastside. Stop by to talk and see what they’re up to. Carvers include Ralph E Hill, Stanley Paul and more to be confirmed. This is a day-long event and the carvers will come and go. If the weather’s nice, the carvers will be outside. Please note: from 1-3pm, men-only inside the Front Door. Other times of the day: Everyone Is Welcome! Free

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!

On page 9 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.
