Amraah Carole White

says: At 78 this year, I am both an old hand and an accidental tourist in Vancouver, 2017.

I am pleased to offer an unusual take on my observations, experiences and on the wider world around me here in the Downtown Eastside. Bon Appetit!


TJ Dawe

TJ Dawe is a Vancouver based writer, performer and director. He mostly creates autobiographical monologues, and helps others do the same.

He teaches a course on creating a solo show at Langara, as part of their Continuing Studies program, which is open to anyone. He spends a good chunk of year on the road, touring theatres and festivals.

He and his partner Lindsay facilitate workshops on the Enneagram (pronounced “any-a-gram”) – a personality type system, and on creativity. A play he co-wrote got turned into a feature film that very few people saw.
