Event description

Description

Ocean Falls sits on unceded Heiltsuk and Nuxalk, a company town founded in 1906 and easily one of the most intact Ghost Towns in British Columbia.

In the heart of the harbour, a 600 bed hotel--but who's willing to stay the night?

It's a legacy of boom and bust. Once 3900 people strong, now 15--depending on the summer.

With Populous Map in town, 17.

What happens when a company leaves? Who stays behind?

--
This event takes place on the unceded, occupied, and ancestral homelands of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and Stó:lō peoples.

The venue is physically accessible, with one level through to the stage area.

This is a free event but donations are always greatly accepted. A friendly reminder that The Lido is our host, please support local business by purchasing a drink.
