    Motion: To change the purpose(s) of WePress Community Arts Space Society from:

    a) To use historic and contemporary methods of print and art-making to support learning, skills development and creative communications for personal and community benefit amongst residents and friends of the Downtown Eastside.

    to the following:

    The purpose(s) of the society is (are):
    a) To advance education by providing workshops on historic and contemporary methods of print- and art-making for the public, with a particular focus on individuals from marginalized communities in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

    WePress recognizes that the purpose of our organization outlined in our Constitution may require updating in order to properly reflect the direction that we have taken since our registration as a BC Society on September 21, 2016. Since that time, we have focused our work on bringing art-making to the general public with a focus on providing access to our programming for those living in poverty and on the margins of society for a wide variety of reasons.
