A group of about a dozen youth and some artist mentors have been working together for four months on an art presentation to tell stories from the Downtown Eastside/Strathcona community through mediums such as stop-motion animation, video and shadow puppetry.

The content derives from interviews of seniors and long-time residents of Strathcona, the oldest neighbourhood in Vancouver. The project was developed by Media Undefined’s Jaimie Robson in partnership with the Strathcona Community Centre.

Screenings are on Friday and Saturday night in the 400 block of East Hastings, outdoors on storefront walls/windows.

The works will also be shown at the Powell Street Festival on August 1 in Woodland Park.

Both screenings are free.
