Tales from the West End:
Creating community with stories

Tuesday, March 17, 2014 ; 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Ongoing event, third Tuesday of every month
JJ Bean Coffee Roasters (Bidwell and Davie)
1209 Bidwell Street, Vancouver
Event is free, no registration required

'Tales from the West End' is an invitation to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past. The JJBean coffee shop is located in the original Maxine’s Hideaway, a West End landmark with many tales hidden in its walls, including illicit activities that add to the colourful folklore of the West End.

This is an opportunity to visit this renovated historic building, hear stories and tell your stories about the West End. Come and meet your neighbours and explore ideas to create community around the stories that contributed to creating our neighbourhood.

This event is free and is made possible by the Heritage Vancouver Society, Gordon Neighbourhood House, the Greenest City Fund, JJBean and WEArts.
