El Mash Up is coming!

EPFC | March 29th, 2021

EPFC North is excited to be working with Daniela Rodríguez and Dora Prieto to present an exciting new youth program!

Calling all self-identifying Latinx/Latine youth (ages 15-18), and those that don’t identify as Latinx but have a connection and heritage to the lands known as Latinoamérica, and who reside within the greater Vancouver area, on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples including the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.

El Mash Up is for you!!!

The Project: In the late Spring of 2021 (May/June), we will be giving a hybrid creative writing + media arts workshop for self-identifying Latinx youth. In order to make this the most interesting for the participants (as in, you!) we want to get some of your feedback first. The flow of ideas is a two-way street.

To participate in a short survey go here:

This project is supported by a Creative Spark Vancouver grant disbursed by ArtStarts in Schools and funded by the City of Vancouver.

Marvelous Movie Mondays: Blue Movie vs Liquidator

EPFC | April 8th, 2020

guest curator: Kerry St. Laurent

Theme: Tonal Contrast
We’re looking at films that explore contrast in the several ways we can interpret the word “tone” – sound, color, and mood – both in each individual piece and how they contrast with each other.

Today’s first pairing is “Blue Movie” by Michael Morris (2016) and “Liquidator” by Karel Doing (2010). Both manipulate archival footage and use monochromatic palettes, but the end results span from romantic to sinister, vibrant to desaturated, and rounded to sharp. See for yourself and tell us how you think these two films work (or don’t) together!
