Vancouver Sath - Flyer -- 1989. Single sheet flyer distributed by the Vancouver Sath advertizing the performance of a play on Saturday, September 23, 1989.
The flyer is printed in Punjabi with no English on pink paper with black ink.
Object History
These items are ephemera collected by the donor during the active years of the Vancouver Sath organization. Most of the meetings and rehearsals were held in Burnaby, and most of the performances were held in Vancouver. The group was passionate about tackling difficult issues within the community and giving a space for these issues to be raised. The hope was the conversations would begin and go somewhere within families and the community. They covered issues of gender inequality, martial violence, wage discrepancy in work, union support, and racism.
Vancouver Sath recognized that theatre was a more effective medium to reaching their audience than paper newsletters and publications was at the time. They were connected to the Canadian Farmworkers Union (CFU), and other location organzations for support, and due to many shared members. Often the CFU would apply for grants, and fund the cost of venue rental, set and prop procurement, and offering a modest honourarium to actors.
