Public space is for everyone. That’s why we partner with a range of community curators to showcase a diverse array of Vancouver’s music and arts scene through the events we produce.
Our third laneway curator introduction features vogue ball mogul, Ralph Escamillan, a queer, Canadian- Filipinx performance artist, teacher, and confidante.. Collaborating with Vancouver’s own New Forms Festival, Escamillan brings a close knit community in Kiki house-ballroom, street dance, fashion, and performance art to this upcoming Public Disco.
Our second laneway curator introduction features a local singer and performer, and co-host of hip-hop freestyle night, The Stew Jams, Larisa Sanders.
Good Night Out Vancouver is a chapter of an international initiative dedicated to raising awareness about sexual harassment and assault on nights out. We build safer communities by providing nightlife economies with the capacity to respond to and prevent harassment and sexual assault within licensed venues, bars, pubs, festivals and art space. Our vision is to generate a cultural shift in Vancouver's arts, culture and nightlife. Simply put we want safer nights out for all.
As we gear up for the summer season, we want to bring you closer to the magic that is Public Disco. We caught up with our Laneway Series curators Char Loro, Larisa Sanders, and Ralph Escamillan to learn how these creatives think and what sparked their interest in public space and the arts. Our first laneway curator introduction features MC, visual artist, and dancing queen, Char Loro.
