Ef­fect­ing Change

Where Vancouver - - Entertainment -

TO FEB 18 Van­cou­verites are of­ten por­trayed as a laid-back bunch, more con­cerned with yoga and 420 than with any­thing “real.” We do, how­ever, get riled up for wor­thy causes on oc­ca­sion—and not just when our hockey team loses. City on Edge: A Cen­tury of Van­cou­ver Ac­tivism at the Mu­seum of Van­cou­ver (page 59) ex­plores our his­tory of protest move­ments, from race ri­ots in the early 1900s to the Oc­cupy move­ment to last year’s demon­stra­tions against oil pipe­lines. Hun­dreds of photos from the ar­chives of two lo­cal news­pa­pers, along with short films and large dig­i­tal pro­jec­tions, doc­u­ment how lo­cals have ral­lied for change over the last cen­tury.
