Join us for a discussion with women artists working in the Downtown Eastside who are generating public art to share stories of women of this community. Their public art is a form of resistance as it honours women for their power, courage, resilience, activism, strength, memory, cultures and voices. The artists speaking up this afternoon include: Mercedes Eng, writer and teacher; Sharon Kravitz, activist and documentary filmmaker; Kathy Shimizu, a sansei (3rd generation Japanese Canadian) graphic and web designer; Karen Ward, art=politics=love=justice; Skundaal Bernie Williams (Haida/Coast Salish), carver of the Survivors Totem Pole in Pigeon Park; and Diane Wood, artist and poet.
