Special Collaborative Guests
Anna Crow, a self-taught Métis artist, will be live painting in the garden between 11 am and 4 pm! How cool is that? Anna’s in Dude Chilling Art Collective’s exhibition too. We can’t wait to see Anna work her magic.
Vancouver Pop-Up-Poets, 11 am to 1 pm in the community gardens of Dude Chilling Park (East 7th and Prince Edward). In case of rain, Pop-Up-Poets will move to Maker Labs at 221 East 10th Avenue.
Your Word! We Write! We Recite! On the Spot Poetry! Published Poets invite you to request a poem be written on the spot. The poet performs it and gifts it to you.

Musician Adam Bowen, 1 pm to 4 pm in the community gardens of Dude Chilling Park (East 7th and Prince Edward). In case of rain, Adam Bowen will move to Maker Labs at 221 East 10th Avenue.
Adam Bowen has been entertaining audiences since elementary school. Building on a background of theatre arts and raised by musicians, this energetic human never fails to liven up a crowd. He’s got a repertoire of hundreds of songs dating from the 40′s through to today that play well along side his extensive original material. Adam adds an infectious groove to the music, whatever the genre may be. Adam is a musical chameleon, guaranteed to please.
Sinead Sanders is an East Van-based musician/songwriter, in the roots/blues/rock & roll vein. Sinead will be performing at 2:30 pm on the lawn of St. Michaels Hall, 2472 Prince Edward Street, and then at 3 pm in front of 490 East Broadway.
So much creativity in one place, you won’t want to miss this!
