October 22, 2010: Women in a Changing Downtown Eastside
Friday October 22 from 5-7pm at The Interurban Gallery & Community Art Space (1, East Hastings at Carrall) to celebrate the launch of the multi-faceted website, “Women in a Changing Downtown Eastside" - www.womendtes.com
"Women in a Changing Downtown Eastside" has been part of a collective effort, over many months, to look at the impact of gentrification, oppression, poverty, and racism on women in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, and to build a library of resources, maps, information and images around this community and its history.
While many who call this neighborhood home are negatively impacted by life in a society that is increasingly polarized, we know that it is women who are particularly vulnerable to the increasing displacement and disenfranchisement that is taking place in this both vibrant and suffering community.
This project is supported by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
