Welcome to
Here For Now vol. 3


Thank you so much for joining us. We have been eagerly awaiting this event for two years now, and we are so excited that you’re all here to share it with us! It is an honour to present these three exceptional artists, and we are thrilled to be able to do so in partnership with our wonderful venue, Slice of Life.

Below you will find information about the 3 new works you will see this evening, and below that, some links to the organizations mentioned in the opening speech, should you like to donate or learn more about these important Indigenous-led initiatives.

HERE FOR NOW is a cross-disciplinary art event that hosts boundary-pushing
experimental work in unconventional spaces. Now in its third iteration, Here For Now is
excited to bring this collection of live performances to SLICE NEXT DOOR, a new co-
producing venue known for their community programming in East Vancouver.
Many, many thanks to our partners and supporters!
