Harvest Dinner at Woodward's atrium nov 4th 2018

The Woodward’s community is coming together once again to host the 9th Annual Woodward’s Harvest Dinner.  The event will take place on Sunday, November 4th starting at 5:00 pm in the Woodward’s Atrium. Come join us and enjoy a tasty dinner! We’ll feed over 1000 of Woodward’s neighbours and friends. The food for the meal has been generously donated by the incredible people at Nesters Market at Woodward’s and other Woodward’s partners, and will be cooked and prepared by the professional team at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.  

We will also have the artist Aurelia Bizouard (@aureliabizouard) who will be on site for a live community painting, created from a light placed behind her glass artwork, and that will be projected onto the canvas. Everyone is invited to be part of it and colour the canvas! This public engagement project(@kulturelia) provides an immersive experience, by enabling people to create a work of art, to be part of it, to connect to each other and to represent the Woodward’s community. The painting will then be placed in the atrium of Woodward’s as it belongs to the people who created it. The original glass art piece will then be auctioned off and the funds will go towards our charity partner, PHS Community Services Society. 

PHS Community Services Society is a charitable non-profit organization operating in Vancouver’s DTES. A gift as little as $25 can provide someone in the Downtown Eastside community with BC ID, something many individuals can’t afford and desperately need.  To donate online visit www.phs.ca/donate 

Come out and enjoy a nice meal, paint away and help a good cause!

See you there!!
