Powell Street Festival’s Advocacy and Outreach Committee is hosting their annual Minori (実り) Harvest event in Oppenheimer Park on Sunday November 5! Join for a meal of butternut squash miso soup, plus arts and crafts!
This year, they have invited Japanese American artist, PJ Patten, to host an art workshop and assist folks responding to the prompt, ‘sounds like home.’ This theme explores how we come to know or sense a place sonically. Paper, markers, and other craft supplies will be provided, and all participants will have the option of submitting their work for potential publication in the Advocacy and Outreach Committee’s zine, the paueru gaizette!
When: Sunday, November 5 from 12:30-3:00pm (Workshop starts at 1:00pm)
Where: Oppenheimer Park
About Minori Harvest from the Powell Street Festival Website:
Minori (実り) Harvest is an annual event to celebrate the harvest season and honour the history of Japanese Canadian farmers in BC. We partner with local farmers to source fresh produce to cook and distribute a free miso butternut squash soup. There is also thematic cultural programming activities throughout the day in which we celebrate the delicious abundance of autumn with our DTES community.
This event is organized by Powell Street Festival Society’s Advocacy and Outreach Committee, with support from Oppenheimer Park & Carnegie Community Centre, Vancouver Japanese Language School & Japanese Hall, Yakashiro Farms, TD Park People, and Vancity.
