Housing Justice, Racism and Socially Engaged Art

Saturday June 1st, 2024 @ 7:00PM – 9:00PM

Panel Discussion + Poetry Reading

Please note: At Wildfires Bookshop, all events are masked. Masks will be available at the door. Please read more on their Location + Accessibility page.

Join us for an interactive panel discussion, poetry reading and art exhibit hosted by Changing the Conversation Artist in Residence, Amal Ishaque.

Featuring Margaret Wanyoike and Monica Deng, CAN peer leaders from the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition and Gal Lee from Chinatown Together.

These incredible community leaders and artists will share their art and talk about what it means to organize at the intersections of housing insecurity, racial justice and creative resistance in Chinatown and New West.

Changing the Conversation is a multi-year project focused on shifting narratives about the housing crisis and centering the voices of those living on the frontlines.

This is a free event that takes place in our shop at 712B 12th Street, New West. We are situated on the stolen and occupied territories of the Halq’eméylem speaking peoples.
