EastVanLove 6.5

September 27, 2012 (Thursday)

Toby's Pub & Grill, 2733 Commerial Drive

6pm - 9pm



As the weather begins to cool down, Autumn certainly brings out a sense of change like no other season. Similarly, we at #EastVanLove are changing the colours of our leaves in an attempt to settle some ideas on the future of our grassroots organization.


Instead of hosting our seventh themed tweetup of the #EastVanLove series, we invite you to join us for #EastVanLove Vol. 6.5 to let us know exactly what it is that you love about East Van! At this tweetup, get to know our crew, our upcoming goals and objectives, and learn how you can help us help our community.


What is a tweetup?

A tweetup is an event where people who tweet come together to hangout in person.
 

Who should attend?
 
Anyone who loves the vibrant East Vancouver community. Is your homestead outside of East Vancouver? Non-residents are welcome to attend too!
 

A little bit about #EastVanLove:

This little #hashtag captured the collective spirit of the culture,community, and all things celebratory of East Vancouver. From the V6A to the V5S and beyond, #EastVanLove is a grassroots, cooperative organization of eager, like-minded citizens from all modes of expression and all blends of nationality.

Our mission is to grow both an online and offline permaculture of ideas, expression, and action around all things East Vancouver.
 

 

THE PRESENTERS:

 

In the House Festival: Myriam Steinberg (@InHouseFestival)

Myriam is the brains and the brawn of the “In the House Festival.” Now in its 10th year of bringing live performances of all kinds into people’s living rooms and backyards, “In the House” produces both public and private shows. Her passion for the arts in all its facets comes through in the eclectic programming that can always be found both at the festival and in the year-round shows. She believes that it is very important to not only expose the vast and varied talents of Vancouver, but also to create and foster community while exposing that talent. Check out “In the House Festival” on Facebook and Youtube.

 

Union Gospel Mission: Derek Weiss (@Derek_Weiss)

Derek Weiss

Derek Weiss is Manager of Community Engagement at Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, where he has the privilege and pleasure of working with some of Vancouver’s most awesome people to create meaningful, long-term change. Derek lives in Mt. Pleasant, where he writes haiku and drinks far too much JJ Bean coffee. You can follow him on Twitter.

 
 
There's nothing like an #EastVanLove tweetup without homegrown talent! We'll be featuring special performances by two of Vancouver's bright young stars.
