Herstory in Focus: Celebrating Culture
November 2, 2017 at 6.30-9.30 pm

Vancouver Art Gallery, 750 Hornby St.

Herstory in Focus included a fashion show performed by women of the centre, drumming performance by the Wildflower Women of Turtle Island, address by long-time donor and supporter Cynthia Low, and a live and silent auction, emceed by Global TV’s Lynn Colliar. We were proud to celebrate the resilience and expression of women from the Downtown Eastside for this exciting and unforgettable evening, and exceed our fundraising goal! Photos from the night, courtesy of Jason Brawn Photography, will be posted to our Facebook page.

“I felt empowered – a night to remember forever!

For one night, Herstory was my story – but my story continues beyond the runway.”
