Co-presented by WePress and SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement.
Join us as we share our journey from being a small group of community-builders and art- and print-makers to delivering innovative art programming in the Downtown Eastside, in a space shared with Gallery Gachet (9 W. Hastings Street).
Check it out firsthand by making your very own block print while learning about WePress’ exciting Sketchbook Project, a community partnership with Gallery Gachet and Powell Street Festival Society. In collaboration with several Downtown Eastside community organizations and supported by the Vancouver Foundation, BC Arts Council, the City of Vancouver, and the Community Arts Council of Vancouver, this will culminate in an exhibition opening at Gallery Gachet on Friday, March 9, 2018.
WePress is a community artspace in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver on the occupied territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), and mi ce:p kwətxwiləm (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We seek to support Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside residents and communities to empower themselves and build community capacity and resilience through art-making.
