Join Buddies and Eventual Ashes for a night of performances featuring Juno award winners Quantum Tangle (Yellowknife), plus comedy by Vance Banzo and Dustin L Hollings and musical performances by Camilla Diaz Varela and Eiyn Sof. The evening is hosted by Gwen Benaway and produced and curated by Ashley Bomberry and Gein Wong.
This special event kicks off a year-long collaboration between Eventual Ashes and Buddies tied to ongoing renovations at our theatre. Eventual Ashes is contributing to this process by commissioning Two-Spirited artists Jay Havens and Maanii Oak. The duo will create an installation in the downstairs waiting area that emphasizes the Two-Spirit presence within 2SLGBTQ+ communities, as well as the Indigenous history of the land that Buddies in Bad Times resides upon.
This will be a year-long process involving community consultations as well as workshops with Buddies Staff and Board that will outline settler responsibilities and treaties. With this process, we aim to build reciprocity between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples within the Buddies in Bad Times building
