About fringe2013

Art Matters Society produced a Fringe Festival for 14 years in the Fraser Valley-now operating on Vancouver Island we are bringing alternative theatre to Port Alberni . . . .we also do lie unjuried theatre all year round with our May 18th, Social Justice and the Arts Day. Gwynne Hunt's play Mudfaps will be presented at Char's Landing at 7:30 PM. Jenn Fisher-Bradley is presenting a skit during the afternoon at the Main Artery along with slam poets, singer/songwriters and more. Five Directors: Gwynne Hunt, David A Hunt, Jenn fisher-Bradley, Sarah Louise Bunda, Judith Reeves. Director of Art Matter's Society: Gwynne Hunt On March 19th, the book ‘Rampage; the pathology of an epidemic’ written by Gwynne Hunt was released at the International Celebration of Women in Abbotsford. The book is Hunt’s personal journey over the last six years working on the book and the Memory March (a walk/vigil honouring over 4,000 missing and murdered women and children in Canada). It includes interviews with grassroots' workers she met. There are a lot of individual, concerned people who work to end violence against women. One of those women is Mary Billy, a writer and activist in Squamish. There are interviews, case stories and conversations with family member’s who have lost loved ones. The book is not about how we are going to end the violence but an examination of the problems, concerns and stereotypical thinking that keeps us trapped in a cycle of violence. Included are the names of 4,000 missing and murdered women and children that have been compiled for The List. The book archives the struggles of grassroots' workers who actively try to raise awareness and focus a light on the violence against women. Domestic violence accounts for most of the murders but media tends to focus on ethnic groups and women at risk. All women are at risk and it is time society stood up united to end the violence.
