We are working to make WePress a sustainable, long-term, gathering and art-making place in the Downtown Eastside (DTES), but this takes time. We have applied for more grants, are slowly raising money through our paid workshops, and are developing a social enterprise whereby artists, and low-income and marginalized people can receive payment for their work – for the workshops they teach, the knowledge they share, the artwork they create, and the community they build.
We hope you’ll agree that this is a worthwhile project. While we wait to hear about funding from various sources (BC Arts Council, City of Vancouver, Vancity, and others), we’re asking supporters and sponsors to make a donation.
Please send whatever you can manage (cheques payable to ‘WePress’) to:
#202 – 268 Keefer Street
Vancouver, BC V6A 1X5
or drop by the space with cash!
You can also sign up for our paid workshops and come to our events. We appreciate all levels and forms of support!
