THE FIREHALL’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY DONATION CAMPAIGN
30 years ago, the Firehall Theatre opened its doors. City of Vancouver Mayor Mike Harcourt pulled up to the theatre in a 1912 fire truck driven by Fireman Alex Matches (what a name!) to cut the ribbon on the new theatre, and we were off and running!
Since that time, the Firehall has been working with the mandate to animate the heritage building with eclectic theatre, dance, music and interdisciplinary works that celebrate Canada’s cultural pluralism, and has hosted over four thousand performances for audiences of all ages.
Fast forward to today, and the Firehall Arts Centre has received numerous awards for its commitment to artistic excellence and inclusion and to the community of the Downtown Eastside. Preparing to enter its 30th season, the Firehall is one of Vancouver’s most beloved and respected cultural hubs consisting of a theatre, studio, gallery and exhibition space.
To celebrate our 30 years, the Firehall is launching a $30 for 30 Campaign, asking you to donate a dollar for each of our 30 years!
Over the next 30 days, we will be posting a Firehall fact on our social media sites; check Facebook, Twitter and our Blog for updates!
