Every Kind of Love

Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, 6265 Crescent Road, Vancouver

EVERY KIND OF LOVE features performances from students and community artists that are dedicated to discussing and representing queer love, trans love, 2-Spirit love, Black love, Indigenous love, and radical-self love. Held in the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts in the Performing Arts' beautiful TELUS Studio.

💖 While traditional Valentine’s Day celebrations typically promote a kind of “love” which is not inclusive to all genders, sexualities, and experiences, EVERY KIND OF LOVE will create a safer space for artists and audience members to share their vulnerability. We welcome a Valentine's Day in full spectrum.

💖 Every Kind of Love is presented by the UBC Arts & Culture District and UBC Arts Undergraduate Society to showcase students and community artists in the Telus Studio of the Chan Centre in their diverse ways of loving themselves and others.

We acknowledge this event is taking place on the stolen and unsurrendered ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-waututh), and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) nations.

On Feburary 14 support the Womens Memorial March. "The women’s memorial march continues to honour the lives of missing and murdered women and all women’s lives lost in the Downtown Eastside. Increasing deaths of many vulnerable women from the DTES still leaves family, friends, loved ones, and community members with an overwhelming sense of grief and loss. Indigenous women disproportionately continue to go missing or be murdered with minimal to no action to address these tragedies or the systemic nature of gendered violence, poverty, racism, or colonialism."
