Join Burrardview Park Fieldhouse artist-in-residence Lexie Owen on a walking tour through Hastings-Sunrise and the Burrardview neighbourhood, looking at existing and historical corner store locations.
Space is limited, so please register for the walk through eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/corner-store-hastings-sunrise-burrardview-walk-registration-51446618220).
The Corner Store discussion and events series is a critical component of this project through which community members at-large can come together to discuss pertinent questions of social practice and community engagement in contemporary art, as well as urgent and specific local issues of food commodity and production, gentrification, and the erosion of community under conditions of financial precarity. The three discussion sessions in the series are led by artists, curators, and cultural workers knowledgeable to the respective topics being addressed, and are punctuated by special events such as Andrea Creamer’s Anti-Fascist Karaoke, and Lexie Owen’s walking tour of the Burrardview/Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood. More about the Corner Store project.
