Led by community-based performer and choreographer Lance Lim of the Pigeon Den Art Collective, the community hub “Our Voices, Ourselves” will bring together several artists and organizations for a three-week long series of artist-led workshops. The hub events will be centered in the Strathcona neighborhood in Vancouver with activities at the Raycam Co-operative Centre and Vancouver Public Library (local Strathcona DTES branch).

“Our Voices, Ourselves,” is about enabling ourselves through our art and our stories and to engage, communicate, and express ourselves through artist-led workshops in our own community.
