Eastside Friday: Creative Magic!

Friday November 7, 7pm – 10pm
EWMA Studio, 56 E. Hastings
Join EWMA (Enterprising Women Making Art) for Eastside Friday: Creative Magic!, showcasing EWMA artists and community members in an evening of music, dance and circus arts that blends art, creativity, personal insight and inspiration. Featured artists include, among others: rap and spoken word artist Janice Jacinto who delves deep into personal odyssey and artistic experience; Renee Mak performing circus arts; costume artist and dancer Montana King; and special musical guest Resonance, a duo with vocalist Rose Eide and singer and guitarist Peggy Wilson. They deliver original tunes and carefully selected classics with their own special vocal blend – a community joy! EWMA is a development initiative of Atira Women’s Resource Society. It focuses on supporting women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside to work together to develop an alternative form of business or employment that is grounded in their needs and realities. The EWMA retail store showcases designs created by emerging local women artists, and is the perfect place to shop for locally-made products and support sustainable art and design practices.
