Salish Coast LIVE Winter Gathering

FOUR VENUES! TWO DAYS! WARRIOR UP!

An evening downtown concert experience is the celebratory ending to a rich day of learning and mobilisation.

Confirmed resource people include: Rueben George, Ta’ah (Amy) George, Charlene Aleck, Carleen Thomas, Jessica Clogg, Melina Laboucan-Massimo, Eugene Boulanger, Gabriel George, Brigette DePape, Sean Devlin, Gord Hill, Jayce Salloum, Kai Nagata, Mike George, Lido Pimienta, A Tribe Called Red, Ben West, Mandy Nahanee, and ++ a dozen more!

REGISTRATION 
http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/salish-coast-live-winter-gathering-tickets-9990159837

We are currently fundraising so that the cost of participation is free for Tsleil Waututh and Coast Salish participants. We are asking environmental and progressive groups to sponsor their participants as well as additional Coast Salish participants with a $500-1500 contribution. This is both an act of solidarity, as well encourages participants and groups to support the true cost of this major event. We would be pleased to send a proposal to your group so that you and others can participate. [Contact: ioostindie@twnation.ca].

The registration tickets are structured so that people with access to financial resources contribute fairly, and Indigenous participants have their fees waived in order to support redress and participation. We ideally would have everyone's participation costs waived, but we have not yet raised sufficient money to do that. Therefore for the month of January we have structured a $40 subsidized ticket, and $60 regular ticket. If you already have your A Tribe Called Red evening ticket, simply register for the weekend by clicking on the All Events - except Commodore" option. 

The Commodore show will be sold out long before the Gathering - and is currently being sold at $30 just by itself (on TicketWeb).https://www.facebook.com/events/182415785293987/ so the NEXT 80 PEOPLE TO REGISTER HERE WILL GET THE COMMODORE TICKET INCLUDED. After that it will be sold out. If you want to participate and are unable to afford these fees, please do get in touch with us. It is time to Warrior Up! and while this prject is very costly to produce, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Do be in touch, or select the 'by donation" option. 

If you do not have a credit card, you can select the "Other Payment Options" and complete your payment at the door. We are continuing to fundraise to ensure the event is accessible to all. If you are unable to afford the full costs for events, note many events are free such as the Saturday afternoon program, and the Friday and Saturday evening events are by donation. Only the Commodore Ballroom show has a fixed costs. Help us by making a donation for what you can afford.
