About:

Join us in a workshop that will cover a brief history of street & protest art, offer hands-on demonstrations, and — if time — take folks out onto the street! All supplies will be provided and participants may take home what they create.

Safer Space Guidelines:

Open to everyone, including cis/het allies, except for cops, media, and fascists.

This event is a safer space. We recognize that oppression exists everywhere, and that we cannot guarantee safe spaces, only that we can make them safer by recognizing, understanding, challenging, and transforming oppressive ideas and behaviours. This includes, and is not limited to, racism, classism, ableism, cissexism, heterosexism, ageism, sexism, and sizeism.

Participants are encouraged to give care to themselves and engage in this space in ways that works for them; no one expects folks to do anything they don't want to do.

This event centres trans people and their lived experiences, and we will prioritize their voices above all else, particularly those who are multiply marginalized. This is not a space for parachuters or co-opters.

Organizers are bound by the Mission, Vision & Basis of Unity of TWOR and reserve the right to remove anyone who is disruptive, breaches the safer space guidelines, and/or creates an unsafe space (please note: discomfort is not the same as unsafe.)


Accessibility info:

The building entrance, meeting space, and washrooms are wheelchair accessible.

There are multi-stall, gendered washrooms that will be declared 'all genders' for the duration of the event.
If you require childcare, please let us know as soon as possible through direct message, leaving a comment, or emailing [email protected]. com.

Bus tickets are available for attendees who require them, no questions asked.

This event will use art supplies with strong scents, including sharpies and spray paint. We still ask folks to refrain from wearing scented products the day before and during the event. This includes perfumes, lotions, hair products, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc. to help maintain a scent-reduced space. If you have multiple-chemical sensitivities and are experiencing barriers, please speak with an organizer.

Organized and taking place on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the x?m??kw?y??m, Sk?wx?wu?7mesh, & S?l?i?lw?ta?? nations. This event stands in solidarity with Indigenous peoples in their struggle for autonomy and self-determination.

The Vancouver Pride Society allows event organizers to create an account and upload their local LGBTQIA2S+ event as a free service. These events are briefly reviewed to ensure they are hosted by the organization who posted it. Community listings are submitted by local event producers which consist of fundraising and for-profit events and should not be considered sanctioned by Vancouver Pride Society.  If you have any questions or wish to report such events on our web site, contact [email protected]
