Unceded Coast Salish Territories (Vancouver)

ARTSHOW/DINNER/MUSICNITE! An Unist'ot'en Fundraiser

party against colonial industrial expansion

Saturday April 13 2013
- 12:00am
Sunday April 14 2013

Venue: Artbank
Address: 1897 Powell St (@ Victoria)
Cost: $5-$20, no one turned away
Accessibility: The space is accessible through the front door, as there are no steps to get in (door width coming shortly), but the bathroom is through a narrow hallway and isn't very accessible unfortunately. There is, however, a bar down the street called the Princeton Pub which has one wheelchair accessible non-gendered bathroom that has no bars inside. The Princeton is fine with people using their bathroom during the event.

Please join us for a night of music, dinner, and art!!

6pm: Dinner (vegan and mostly gluten free- we will try hard to accommodate your other dietary needs, please get in touch with us!)

8pm-11pm- MUSIC!!!!!
-The amazing and talented MEGANG will woo us with one-human-band skills
-SPESH PEP will unleash the ecstatic dork funk upon our eardrums
-Chaos, Disorder and Panic will tear it up too

All night: Amazing works of art created by upwards of a dozen artists and donated to the Unis'tot'en Resistance Community. The idea is you buy them and the money will go up north to help continue the battle against the PTP and all industrial expansion on stolen land.

All art will be sliding scale, and there will definitely be some affordable pieces (less than $10). There'll also be patches and t-shirts VERY reasonably priced!

This event is occurring on unceded, stolen Coast Salish land, which includes Tsleil-watuth, Stó:lo, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw and Musqueam Territory. We are trying to understand what it means to be settlers on this land, and fight the institutions of power which continue colonization. We see the corporations and the illegitimate government as a common enemy of all those struggling for earth liberation and sovereignty.

Against resource extraction, industrial invasion, colonialism, assimilation, bankers, and capitalism!

For the freedom to determine our lives as we choose on our own terms!
