SALT WATER CITY STORIES
Thursday November 6, 7pm
Chapel Arts Theatre, 304 Dunlevy
Free

Vancouver by another name: Huam Siu Fao (Salt Water City), the name Chinese immigrants called Vancouver back in the day, retains a memorable place in the hearts of Chinese Canadians. Sid Chow Tan, longtime east-sider, videographer and community activist, hosts this evening of stories, music, video and tribute to those who came before – the mighty Lo Wah Kiu (old overseas Chinese). Special guests include Faye Leung, retired realtor, native Strathconian and personality extraordinaire; artist, educator and filmmaker Karin Lee, whose interest in Chinese Canadian identity informs her work; and Sean Gunn, longtime activist and singer/songwriter performing on electric bass.

 

This event was on  Day 9 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.
