Feeling under the weather? Here’s your prescription – have some comedy! Join host David Granirer and comics from Stand Up for Mental Health, including our favourite local funny guy Paul Decarie. Special guests are the Highs & Lows Choir, a choir for people with mental health issues, and their friends and supporters, who know a comic song when they sing one. Stand Up For Mental Health was founded by award-winning counselor, stand-up comic and author David Granirer who teaches stand-up comedy to people with mental illness. David and his comics look at the lighter side of taking meds, seeing counselors, getting diagnosed and surviving the mental health system. For more info: www.standupformentalhealth.com

This event was on  Day 3 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.
