We Are the People is an original musical celebration commemorating 125 years of laughter and tears in the Downtown Eastside – the heart of our city. Presented by Vancouver Moving Theatre Society, this special concert of songs of “struggle and loss, celebration and perseverance” showcases the home-grown creativity of this inner city community and reflects the Downtown Eastside’s cultural diversity and urban aboriginal residents. We Are The People features a talented team of professional musicians and Downtown Eastside residents and emerging artists, and premieres the week of Vancouver’s birthday at the venerable Ukrainian Hall in Strathcona/Downtown Eastside.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
