Book Launch and Celebration
FROM THE HEART OF A CITY: Community Engaged Theatre and Music Productions from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside 2002 to 2013
Thursday October 29, 7pm – 9pm
PTC Test Kitchen, 739 Gore, 2nd floor
Free

Join Vancouver Moving Theatre and Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC) to launch the book From The Heart of A City, a celebratory history and resource of community-engaged theatre and music productions created by, for and about Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside between 2002-2012: I Love the Downtown Eastside; In the Heart of a City: The Downtown Eastside Community Play; Condemned – The Carnegie Opera; East End Blues & All That Jazz; We’re All In This Together; The Returning Journey; A Downtown Eastside Romeo and Juliet; Bruce – The Musical; Storyweaving; and Bread & Salt.

Whether you’re in the book or you were part of the audience of more than a decade of theatre and music productions – or just want to find out more about them – you are invited to celebrate the launch of the book edited by Savannah Walling, Terry Hunter and John Endo Greenaway. There will be a panel discussion on Community and Theatre, featuring contributing writers Renae Morriseau, James Fagan Tait, Ethel Whitty and John Endo Greenaway, moderated by Heidi Taylor (PTC) – followed by an opportunity to mingle and interact with “pop-up” mini-events, including art activity with special guest Ruth Howard from Toronto’s Jumblies Theatre.

This event was on  Day 2 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

AHA MEDIA for Heart of the City Festival 2014

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.

Say Hello to AHA Media as they visit the Festival events. They will be happy to chat with you. Stay connected to the festival with AHA’s links – see photos/videos of the festival events you attended; take in a festival event you missed; or follow one festival event while you are attending another!
