City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism
Details:

Explore the history of our city’s street protests at this major, new photo-based exhibition showcasing rarely seen walks of resistance. The project features over 650 images of street demonstrations, protests, and riots from the early 1900s to present day from the archives of the Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers. From the shoreworkers’ strike at the Battle of Ballantyne Pier in 1935 to rallying of anti-logging groups at Clayoquot Sound in 1993, these records demonstrate the power of “ordinary people” in mobilizing public opinion and effecting change locally and globally.
