Sites Of Empowerment & Gentrification
Tour with CCAP
Saturday October 31, 11:30am–1pm
Start at the Carnegie Centre front steps and visit some of the best loved places in the area according to the stories of low-income DTES residents.
Contemplate how these key sites give us clues as to how to build a vision for a safe, healthy and affordable low-income neighbourhood and how this future is threatened by gentrification. CCAP is building consensus within the low-income community for a vision of the Downtown Eastside that hopefully the city will adopt. Visioning reports and information on gentrification can be found on their blog: www.ccapvancouver.wordpress.com.
All proceeds to CCAP. $10 for non-residents, low-income people free.
