1. SlutWalk Vancouver
May 15 | Start 1:00pm | Meet at Vancouver Art Gallery | Free!!!
A lighthearted name for an incredibly serious issue, SlutWalk addresses the culture that excuses away all sexual assault, not solely rape, and promotes the idea that all people, regardless of gender, have a role in challenging victim blaming and sex shaming that create a culture that justifies acts of sexual violence. This event is not just about the violence, but the excuses that allow violence to continue.
2. Northern Voice: Blogging + Social Media Conference
May 13 & 14 | UBC Life Sciences Centre | $50-90
NV11 is the 7th annual two-day, non-profit personal blogging, social media and publishing conference. If you want to meet and hear from online people, this is the place to be! And the Masala Bee will be doing a workshop on Saturday at 11am on Online Campaigning along with Leadnow.ca and OpenMedia.ca
3. Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration
May 13 | 5–10 PM | Vancouver Art Gallery Grounds | Free!
