10th Annual H’Arts for the Homeless

by Deanna Knight on October 24, 2018

Oct 4th brought the 10th Annual H’Arts for the Homeless at the Imperial in Vancouver. My 7th year producing this fun-filled event for The Lookout Health + Housing Society was another hit. It is always such a honour for me to curate some of Vancouver’s finest talent in music, dance, circus, poetry and visual art. Our 8 live painters kicked butt once again while David C Jones had us all giggling through the live auctioneer. The night was full of colour and inspiration with The Ladies in White, CR Avery, The Burying Ground, Mike Battie, Double Treble, Brooke Vandyk, The Hot Club of Mars, Balkan Schmalkan who all brought their A Game. CBC’s Kathryn Gretsinger was our emcee full of heart and holding together all the bits and pieces of the cabaret and awards.

One thing we NEED to tap into – is who out there has $$$ AND care about the issue of homelessness? We need to get more bums in seats and more folks out to support the important work of the Lookout. Homelessness hits not only the addicted and mentally ill but it hits seniors and families and folks who are just down on their luck.  So many live one cheque away from loosing their home and once that happens…it is very difficult to get back into the system. It can happen to ANYONE. Please contact me if you have ideas or connections that may help get the right folks to this event next year.
