WRITE TO THE CITY: Adventures in Social Writing for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Thursday Nov 4 2010

November 5, 2010 Leave a comment

Interactive Writing
WRITE TO THE CITY: Adventures in Social Writing
Thursday November 4, 8:30pm-10pm
Brickhouse Bar, 730 Main

Join the Thursdays Writing Collective with guest author Michael Turner for 90 minutes of writing prompts, pencil-chewing, and laughter as they push the phrases and numbers that determine how we navigate Vancouver into a creative realm. Numbers, acronyms, forms: how can we repurpose these constraints and social controls into an act of creative liberation and change the way we experience civic space? Pencils and paper will be supplied and participants will have the opportunity to share their writing. Michael Turner is a Vancouver-based author of fiction, criticism and song. His books include Hard Core Logo, The Pornographer’s Poem and most recently 8×10. He blogs at this address: http://mtwebsit.blogspot.com/. The Thursdays Writing Collective, directed by Elee Kraljii Gardiner, has been called by Geist magazine “the biggest, boldest, and by far the most vital conspiracy of writers operating in Vancouver at present.” TWC meets at Carnegie Community Centre every Thursday for drop-in creative writing sessions. More info at www.thursdayspoemsandprose.ca. Cash bar. Free admission

Sustaining Memories Opening Reception by Colleen Carroll for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Thursday Nov 4 2010

Opening Reception
SUSTAINING MEMORIES Colleen Carroll
Thursday November 4, 6pm-8pm
radha yoga & eatery, 728 Main 2nd floor
Exhibition November 4 to 30

Downtown Eastside artist Colleen Carroll has lived at Main and Hastings for nine years after moving here from the north due to severe health challenges. She loves it here and says she’s “never looked back.” “Painting helps me in many ways. It makes me focus on things other than my pain and poor memory. It takes me back in time and place to where and when I had my health. It lets me record the beauty I have found, and still find, in my life, living here in the DTES.” She works in acrylic, mostly on canvas, with subjects from Haida Gwaii to Ecuador but mostly her work these days is of “the hood.” (Colleen Carroll) For tonight’s reception Stan Hudac will play some of Colleen’s favourite piano selections and as a special Diwali treat, Nazil Kara will do complimentary mehndi designs for the guests. The eatery is open for dinner 6pm-10pm. For information 604-605-0011 or www.radhavancouver.org

CRAB PARK & THE NEST PROJECT Walking Tour with Greg Ferguson & Don Larson for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Thursday Nov 4, 2010

November 4, 2010 1 comment

Walking Tour
CRAB PARK & THE NEST PROJECT
with Greg Ferguson & Don Larson
Thursday November 4, 4:30pm-6pm

Meet at Wendy Poole Park, NW corner of Main & Alexander
Environmental artist Sharon Kallis spent the summer in workshops with community members to create woven sculptures for the marsh pond located in CRAB Park. They wove perches and protection for park birds and helped to make the area more livable for birds in the DTES, www.crabparknest.wordpress.com. As they worked they learned about the history and stories of the favourite waterfront from Don Larson, activist and founder of CRAB Water for Life Society. Led by Don’s persistence in the mid-80s, determined residents set up a tent-city for almost three months to fight for the right to build a park in the DTES. Their persistence eventually paid off and we celebrate the results of their activism in this natural jewel of a park. Don and Greg Ferguson, biologist, will lead a walking tour of the park history, ecology, and various memorials and art works. $10 for non-residents, pay what you can for local residents

Day of the Dead Fiesta & Procession for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Tuesday Nov 2, 2010

November 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Community Celebration
DAY OF THE DEAD FIESTA & PROCESSION
Tuesday November 2, 2pm–8pm
Oppenheimer Park, 488 Powell

In the Downtown Eastside, Latin Americans celebrate Day Of The Dead with pageantry, music, love and humour. We throw a party and invite the dead to join us for a few hours before returning to “the other side.” This year Watari Research Association, Oppenheimer Park and the Heart of the City Festival join together to present an afternoon of music and celebration. Bring flowers, candles, and photographs for the ofrenda (altar), noisemakers, costumes or musical instruments. The afternoon begins with a First Nations welcome and we’ll share some folk music with DTES residents, poetry with Lady Die and special guest, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Joseph ‘Pepe’ Danza. Your hosts for the fiesta are Byron Cruz, Dr. Enema and folklorista Isabel Ramirez. We’ll end the afternoon with a piñata for the children. At 6pm Ross Barrett and the Carnival Band will lead us on a procession through the DTES to honour the lives lost on these streets, returning to Oppenheimer Park for hot chocolate. Everyone welcome. Free

Bill Quinn’s Story for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Monday Nov 1, 2010

Teaching
MY STORY Bill Quinn
Monday November 1, 1pm-3pm
Aboriginal Front Door, 384 Main

Longtime DTES resident, First Nation elder and artist, Bill Quinn will share his story with us. His story is about the past, the present and the future of his people and his own journey. He tells of the history—of food, medicine, shelter, and how for a number of years now there’s been a downfall and the aftermath is now stuffed into city sidewalks. Ten years ago Bill took an original approach to collage art and he puts his words into pictures. His work layers tragedy and humour into an exploration of his story from buffalo meat to baloney. Bill now talks about a better destiny when we become aware that we all share this galaxy. Come and share in Bill’s story. Everyone welcome. Free
