8 DAYS, 2 CITIES, 350+ PERFORMERS, AND TONS OF #BHANGRALOVE
The weird, the wonderful, the unexpected—it’s all part of the City of Bhangra Festival, June 11-18. From crashing an Indian wedding to experiencing desi sketch comedy, bhangra burlesque, workshops, and club nights in unexpected places, we promise you 8 days and nights of pushing buttons and pushing boundaries through bhangra like you’ve never seen before.
Join us for City of Bhangra Festival 2016, and share some #BhangraLove!
Gaming, dining, promotions, meetings—Edgewater Casino is Vancouver’s destination for all things entertainment. But did you know that Edgewater is also a major contributor to improving the health and well-being of our community? We learned this recently from Jennifer Fields-Bell, the Casino’s General Manager. In the interview below, Ms. Field-Bell describes the wonderful work they do to assist moms, families, and at-risk youth, and the unique employment opportunities they provide for those in need.
We’re thrilled to welcome Edgewater Casino as one of our Festival sponsors this year. The work they do to recognize and encourage acceptance, inclusion, and diversity is right in line with VIBC’s own goals to enhance our city by creating opportunities for enjoyment, education, and inspiration for everyone.
Thanks again to Edgewater for their support, and to Jennifer Fields-Bell for so generously sharing her thoughts on our partnership. #BhangraLove!
This year, VIBC’s City of Bhangra Festival is committed to sharing the stage. We are focused on providing a platform to push boundaries in terms of gender and sexuality—it’s about time we support artists and create space for conversations around gender politics and the barriers women and queer artists face.
On May 2, we officially launched our 12th Annual City of Bhangra Festival, June 11-18, in the cities of Surrey and Vancouver.
We’ll be firing off details about the Festival pretty much daily in the weeks to come, so stay tuned to http://www.vibc.org, follow us on facebook.com/vancouverbhangra and @vibc, and you won’t miss a thing!
