Culture Saves Lives! photo 5Located on the traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples, Culture Saves Lives provides space for community members, especially First Nation people oppressed by the mechanisms of colonization, to rediscover and celebrate their roots. The Festival is honoured to support this vital program (Portland Hotel Society, lead Patrick Smith, community artist Larissa Healey) and the Slax’in [Medicine] Project Gallery Show, which features over thirty 4ft tall wood feathers uniquely painted by community artists, and then sold via live auction at the gala. Funds raised will support the artists, future Cultural Saves Lives street level programs, and contribute to a community memorial fund. Learn more at
