Presentation + Art Workshop
Join WePress as they share their 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 them 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.
Co-presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement and WePress.
