Fabulous events this week in Vancouver, British Columbia
Bring Your Boomers combines intelligent conversation with music, film, visual art, storytelling and dance to provide a culturally-driven entry point to discuss social transformation. This installment would explore BC’s emerging carbon corridor and the provincial policies needed to change course towards a green economy, just society and a healthy new era. An inter-genrational dialogue would be bookended by performances from Luciterra Fusion Belly Dance quartet, Brasstronaut and Ta'Kaiya Blaney. Thanks Tara!
