Event description

Description

Please support WePress!

WePress is a community artspace in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver on the occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), and səl̓il̓wətaʔł (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

WePress offers historic and contemporary methods of print- and art-making in a safe and welcoming space, particularly to those marginalized by systems of class, sexuality, gender, race, culture, disability, mental health, addictions, and colonization. We seek to support them to voice their stories, lived experience, and dreams, and to build community capacity and resilience through art-making.

To this end, we are dedicated to providing low-income and marginalized artists and community members with access to art-making equipment (including a letterpress and 3D printer), and to opportunities for learning new skills and income-generation, while honouring their strengths, knowledge, and lived experiences.

Your donation will go towards providing free art workshops and economic opportunities to the artists and community members that WePress works with in the Downtown Eastside. Many thanks for your support!
