Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre presents the world premiere of an innovative, multi-media dramatic work This Stays in the Room. From the company that brought you Except in the Unlikely Event of War, Re:Union, and Palace of the End, this collective creation brings together several of Vancouver’s finest theatre artists in a provocative and intimate experience which will propel the audience on a theatrical journey that asks: why do you shame and how do you forgive? Come enter a vulnerable and exposed environment where the stories you will hear are the actual lived-experiences of the performers onstage. This Stays in the Room will engage the audience through text, song, original sound and video composition, choreographed movement, and photographic portraiture.

Now Hiring - Programming Coordinator
JOB POSTING: Programming Coordinator
Gallery Gachet is seeking a motivated, creative and organized individual who will work collaboratively with the staff/Collective team to develop, support and implement the delivery of cultural services and operations related to Gallery Gachet’s mandate, while contributing to the financial health of the gallery.
Gallery Gachet is a dynamic collectively-run arts production, education and presentation space located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES) built to empower participants as artists, administrators and curators. We strive to provide a focal point for dialogue amongst outsider/dissident artists. Through artistic means, we aim to demystify and challenge issues related to mental health, disability issues and social marginalization in order to educate the public and promote social and economic justice. We see a time and place where people who have experienced marginalization feel fully supported in their struggle for a creative life and career, including access to adequate housing, studio space and economic security. We believe that the expression and practice of art and active participation in culture-building is a human right, and that art and culture are critical elements of a healthy society.
