Social justice arts fair

The Art Matters Society has organized the Alberni Valley’s Social Justice and the arts day on May 18 starting at 4 p.m. at Char’s Landing

The Art Matters Society has organized the Alberni Valley’s Social Justice and the Arts day this Saturday, May 18 starting at 4 p.m. at Char’s Landing.

The microphone will open at 4 p.m. for poets like Sarah Louise Bunda, spoken word pieces and more. Expect a reading or two from upcoming productions, as well as the crowning of the winner of a poster contest Art Matters Society ran to promote the day.

At 7:30 p.m., Gwynne Hunt unveils Mudflaps, a gritty play about violence against women that brings a strong message to the stage.

This play deals with the uncomfortable subject of violence against women but is told with heart and humour. While events are free between 4–6 p.m., tickets for Mudflaps are $7 in advance at the Main Artery, 4969 Argyle St. or $8 at the door. Doors open at Char’s at 7 p.m.
