Vancouver Art Attack & Culture Saves Lives invite you to a unique event that celebrates Indigenous art, dance, storytelling and culture. Held at the Woodwards Building at 131 West Hastings (new location), in the heart of historical Chinatown, A Native Perspective is a not for profit fundraiser for Culture Saves Lives that actively promotes the protection and education of First Nations culture.
Hosted by a Vancouver downtown eastside survivor, Duane Howard (The Revenant), A Native Perspective will be an event to remember. It will include showcasing an amazing line up of Indigenous painters from various nations and territories that will create original artwork live. The art will be auctioned off to the highest bidder and proceeds will be donated to Culture Saves Lives.
They will be holding an opening ceremony with #CultureSavesLives to honour those who have died from the Fentanyl crisis.The show will also feature live music by DJ Rexx, carvers, drummers, dancers and storytellers as we gather together to honour the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Coast Salish, Tsleil- Waututh and Squamish First Nations People.
