A NATIVE PERSPECTIVE:
Live art show & fundraiser | Benefitting Culture Saves Lives
Vancouver Art Attack & Culture Saves Lives invite you to a unique event that celebrates Indigenous art, dance, storytelling and culture. Held in the heart of historical Chinatown, “A Native Perspective” is a fundraiser for Culture Saves Lives, a not for profit that actively promotes the protection and education of First Nations culture.
Hosted by Vancouver downtown eastside survivor, Duane Howard (The Revenant), “A Native Perspective” will be an event to remember, showcasing an amazing line up of Indigenous painters from various nations and territories that will create original artwork, live. The art will be auctioned off to the highest bidder and proceeds will be donated to Culture Saves Lives.
We will be holding an opening ceremony with #CultureSavesLives to honour those who have died from the Fentanyl crisis.The show will also feature live DJ’s, carvers, drummers, dancers and storytellers, as we gather together to honour the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Coast Salish, Tsleil- Waututh and Squamish First Nations People.
