Description

It's 2019 and we are Claiming Our Time.

Celebrate International Women's Day at the Columbia Theatre, on the unceded territory of the Qayqayt First Nation and Coast Salish peoples for whom this land has been a gathering place.

Speakers/performers include:

Chelene Knight
Chief Rhonda Larrabee
Elaine Su
Micaela Evans
Harman Kaur
Stephanie Allen
Eden Fineday Patten
Women of Quayside

This event will be in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation's Grandmother's Campaign and Spirit of the Children Society.* It is sponsored by Piva.

This event is hosted by the Glamoramas, Women on Wednesdays, & co**.

Our values are:

  • Intersectional feminism
  • Allyship
  • Reconciliation
  • Diversity
  • Inclusivity
  • Accessibility

Venue Accessibility information:
The theatre has 2 accessible washrooms, an elevator from the lobby to the main area and ramps inside the theatre and on and off the stage. The venue itself is quite crowded and difficult to move around within the seating area. The doors do not have a push button and the entrance does not have a lip.
We will have volunteers attending the event to assist speakers and attendees navigate the venue.

This event is open to everyone!

*Ticket proceeds will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation and we will offer the opportunity to contribute funds to Spirit of the Children Society at the event.

**Incredible women in our community!
