About the Zine: Last year we expanded our project to include a zine. The DEWAC zine is a collection of artwork made by artists based out of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. The project, as well as the artist's compensation, has been funded by fundraising events, community projects, and personal or group donations. *Please note that all of the material in this book is the property of the artist. Contact us at: [email protected]
if you would like to know more about a specific piece or contributor.
Event Accesibility: Accessibility information to be provided soon.
DEWAC would like to acknowledge that this event takes place on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. We recognize the continued colonial genocide against Aboriginal peoples which makes it possible for us to be here as settlers.
This event is hosted by CiTR Radio 101.9FM and Discorder Magazine as part of their programming at PLOT. PLOT is a new space at Access Gallery intended for occupation by collectives, artist initiatives, nascent or small-scale organizations and those conducting itinerant projects who seek space, greater visibility and, most importantly, who desire to cultivate a relationship with a community or public.
Access Gallery gratefully acknowledges the support of the BC Government Collaborative Spaces Program and Measured Architecture for making PLOT possible. We also acknowledge the ongoing support of The Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of BC, the BC Arts Council and BC Gaming Commission, the City of Vancouver, and our committed donors, members, and volunteers.
