Join interdisciplinary artist and BC Culture Days Ambassador Regan Shrumm on October 14 from 2:00pm-4:00pm at Fairfield Community Centre in creating your own miniature banner out of textiles to express yourself through protest.

No previous experience necessary!
Free to attend. The site is wheelchair accessible. Masks are required at the event. Masks will be available for those who forgot or need them. Gender-neutral washrooms. ASL Interpretation provided for the workshop.
