Event Description

During the darkest time of the year join us for A Night to Ignite!

The Resistance Rising Choir's choral concert and fundraiser for Wild Salmon Defense.
Performing live on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations, we are proud to present the culmination of our season's work.

Over the last 12 weeks we have been working on songs to uplift, inspire and ignite the kind of care that is so desperately needed in the world today. In the face of the overwhelming social and environmental catastrophe, Resistance Rising Choir comes a singing! Joyfully raising our voices to honour and protect that which is most sacred to us. Igniting inspiration by bringing magic of harmony to front line resistance.
The night will feature the harmonious offerings of the Resistance Rising choir as well as poetry and performances by Betty Supple and other special guests. We will also hear from renowned and relentless First Nations elder and matriarch, Tsastilqalus Ambers Umbas as she shares about the critical state of BC Wild Salmon and what she's been doing to help save wild salmon from systematic eradication and the domino effect of ecosystem collapse. And she'll share about what you can do to help protect this keystone species and lifeblood of the BC coast, our wild pacific salmon.

Our silent auction will feature unique items for you to bid on and our concession will offer tasty hand made goodies for you to enjoy.

Funds from our concert, concession and silent auction will benefit front line Wild Salmon Defense through Matriarch Camp.
