July 25, 2015: Diversity Walking Tour


In partnership with PeerNetBC, SIETAR BC would like to invite you to join us for our July 25, 2015 event.

Following up the success from their citizenU project in 2011 with the City of Vancouver, PeerNetBC is continuously offering their highly requested Historical Tour of Vancouver on Coast Salish Territory. This is done through a social justice lens, looking at flashpoints in Vancouver’s storied history.

 On this free adapted walking tour, we’ll explore themes of diversity, in/equality, in/exclusion, in Vancouver’s past, present and future. And we’ll ask some tough questions about what we can all do to make Vancouver a better place.

 The stories we’ll share are just a few small pieces of Vancouver’s history and culture. We hope that you’ll share your own stories as well. What do you love about Vancouver? What do you want to change? Imagine that it’s fifty years from now—what stories will be told on a tour like this?

 Venue: Across from Hogan’s Alley Cafe at the grassy SW corner of Gore Ave & Union St in Chinatown

Time/Date:10am- 12pm, Saturday, July 25rd, 2015

Fee: Free for SIETAR BC members, $5 for students, $8 for non-members

Kindly RSVP your attendance to info@sietar.bc.ca by July 23, 2015.
We look forward to seeing you there!
