W2 & Connecting Circles Present: A Night of Deep Sounds, Art and Ideas
Saturday, November 17, 2012
8:00pm until 4:30am
So it’s been a little while since our last show back in January. This time we are excited to be offering a fresh lineup that combines live and electronic performances by BC locals. Two floors of music will be accompanied by an art gallery, video installation and live painting on the main floor, featuring work by West Coast visual artists.
The evening will also be preceded by a panel discussion and Q&A to introduce and evolve ideas related to a new community fundraising initiative called the New Democratic Dance Party, which will be launched on December 15th. This initiative will organize dance events in order to pool community funds and resources which are then used as grants to enable local, socially conscious projects. These projects are selected by the event participants through a direct democratic process that will take place live at the venue. More details:
