*Organized and submitted by Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice*
When: Friday, July 28 at 6 to 8pm
Where: Chinatown Memorial Plaza next to 105 Keefer
Get ready for a night of collage and karaoke, where we will collectively re-imagine 105 Keefer. Bring your favorite collage supplies, photographs, and magazines to create collages that reflect your visions of 105 Keefer, which go beyond Beedie’s gentrifying condos. The goal of this event is to demonstrate to various levels of government that 105 Keefer has the potential to become so much more for the community than just luxury condos, and that they should obtain the land for community use instead. We will remind the government of the shadow that their condominium would cast not only on the Chinese Memorial Plaza, but also the Chinatown community.
