Open Letter: All-ages music venue in Vancouver


Dear Vancouver Mayor and Council,

I am writing to ask that space be set aside in this year’s Capital Plan for an all-ages music venue in Vancouver. I firmly believe that Vancouver’s youth would benefit tremendously from a legal, sustainable, affordable and accessible all-ages music venue.

As a young person growing up in inner-city Indianapolis, all-ages venues were a godsend. But they were unstable and unpredictable. The Emerson was the best one - but it was only all-ages for about a year, which meant we went back to walking the streets and pestering the staff at the Waffle House to hang out. Then there were the churches that would become all-ages venues for a month here or a month there, but it was never predictable. And again, we’d be out on the streets - finding other ways to keep boredom at bay.

Photography has very little to do with mastering all the knobs and dials on your DSLR and everything to do with learning to look, really look, and get beyond the endless collections of different objects and people.
