2nd STORY: Blood Alley
Thursday October 30, 5:30pm – 8pm
InterUrban Gallery, 1 E. Hastings
2nd Story maps personal stories onto local places using various media, including video and mobile technology. For this edition, personal stories from the area known as ‘Blood Alley’ in the Downtown Eastside have been gathered and documented. The area has been chosen for its long history and as a microcosmic example of a neighborhood in transition: a Single Room Occupancy hotel and shelter stands across the alley from a new condo development with boutiques and restaurants. Over sixty stories were documented, and nine of those were crafted into short videos by a team of film and theatre artists. For this screening a selection of stories and adapted videos will be shown, with storytellers and artists in attendance. More stories are sure to be exchanged! Presented by The Only Animal.

Everyone welcome. Free.
