Last event of the season this Sunday! (Sept 24 1-3pm)
Yes, you heard right. bao and brew: poetry in the plaza is the last event of the summer season for the occupy 105 Keefer series. If you’ve been waiting all summer to attend an event, this is your last chance!
It’ll be an afternoon of poetry, political button making, and open mic to show solidarity against “baoing” down to unjust development in the DTES and Chinatown communities.

Help us expand the events series to reclaim space in Chinatown!
This event series has proven that regular cultural events in Chinatown helps bring people to the neighbourhood while enhancing our connection to Chinatown’s living culture, so we’re planning to keep them going beyond September! To help us with the costs of expanding the event series, consider making a donation to the community events fund to make the events free and accessible to as many people as possible.
