MR. FIRE-MAN PAINTS A PICTURE for 12th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2015 in Vancouver on Nov 7 2015

MR. FIRE-MAN PAINTS A PICTURE: Live Painting Tea House
Saturday November 7, 5pm -10pm
InterUrban Gallery, 1 E. Hastings, entrance on Carrall

The Festival is pleased to present something a little different; something a little unexpected and improvised. David Gowman is Mr. Fire-Man and he paints a picture. ‘In a hall, at the back, beside the music, local painter performs: Pacific Northwest landscape class: an oil painting step by step.’ Musical guests: Idverb (Brad Muirhead, trombone plus composition/musical direction; Lisa Miller, piano; Chris Kelly, electronics; Kedrick James, text/spoken-word artist) will wax poetic with a kaleidoscopic collage of spoken word and music. Following their two hour set, the horn section of The Legion of Flying Monkeys will close the evening with an exploration of sound and rhythm.

This event was on  Day 11 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.
