On Thursday, March 3, join us for another evening of food, fun, and supporting community-building projects.

We host a public dinner at the Groundswell Cafe, where, for a minimum donation of $10 cash at the door you get soup, salad, bread, and a vote.

4 initiatives will pitch their ideas on how to make Vancouver a better, friendlier, or more sustainable city.

After the 4 pitches you can vote and the initiative with the most votes will win the donations raised that night! $$$!

A bigger crowd means a bigger purse for the winning project, so invite your friends and RSVP here.  If you're not on Facebook, just show up.

We have 4 new projects that want to win your vote (and your $$)

Seeing Green: An Environmental Documentary Series
In a partnership with Gordon Neighbourhood House, Kendall Andison brings you Seeing Green. The goal of the series is to bring together activists and environmentally minded folks from around Vancouver to mingle and inspire each other. We hope to do this while breaking down traditional barriers to activism such as age, education and economic status. Groups are invited to bring materials, banners, pamphlets to display and share. Snacks and child care are also available and children are always welcome.
STEM Mentoring Cafe
Wes Wong from Open Science Network presents STEM Mentoring Cafe. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education is important for all citizens in order to understand the world around us. It touches our lives on a daily basis and allows us to participate in policy decisions. Children have limited opportunities to meet with STEM professionals and the STEM Mentoring Cafe is designed to provide such an opportunity. The goal is to inspire the children to consider a STEM career and to encourage girls to enter STEM fields.
Urban Oasis
Sebastian Mather will pitch Urban Oasis - a project that connects binners with healthy, convenient, and affordable food. Binners play an important role in diverting containers from the landfill or incinerator to recycling depots. We hope to bring a sense of empowerment to the way they get food and are currently focusing on selling fresh fruit by the recycling depot on Industrial Avenue. Our hope is that by making healthy food options available in areas that lack them, binners can have the opportunity to get food conveniently without hindering their work day.
Centre B
Tyler Russel from Centre A presents Centre B - a new non-profit art gallery/studio space dedicated to artists engaged in intersectional investigations that challenge Vancouver to think (and discuss) seriously about our community’s diversity. This matters because Vancouver has so much cultural work to do. Vancouver was built on attitudes that oppress and exclude and the mess of our present continues to be tangled up with that history. How better to face the daunting cultural task of unpacking that history than to give artists the space they need to engage our community in thoughtful, emotionally intelligent processes of contemplation and conversation? Centre B offers artists a 3 month studio residency in a highly visible storefront near Main and 4th.
