We want to acknowledge and honour that this event is being held on unceded, ancestral and occupied homelands of the Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm Skxwú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh Nations. We live, create, work and play on these lands. Deep gratitude to the folks of these lands & Deep gratitude to the land. This market is a way to challenge mainstream white dominated arts spaces. Creating our own art is political & a form of decolonization. settlers support Indigenous Artists!!!

Scent free event:
Always aiming to keep our events scent free/scent reduced. Multiple chemical sensitivity (MSC) affects a lot of folks in our communities. Perfumes, chemical scents really make some folks sick. Please be aware of what you are bringing into the space this includes hair and body products, scented laundry soaps, lotions, nail polish. We know that this can be hard for many people. As Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha says in Fragrance-Free Femme of Colour Realness,
"Cutting out scents may seem like a pain in the ass, but it means that awesome, ass-kicking community members you love can attend events you're at and make out with you without having seizures, throwing up or otherwise getting really sick." Please, bring your amazing self, and keep the scents at home!”
