Exhibition Hall
INFO FB Event page

A selection of works by Vancouver’s contemporary Iranian artists focused on exploring the individual and collective beliefs and values which propel the Iranian people’s ongoing defiance in the face of oppression.

Welcome Note
Nowruz has long been a time of celebration for Iranians across the world. This year, it marks the end of a remarkable year that was as inspiring as it was harrowing for Iranians inside and outside the country. In the city of Vancouver, the Iranian community, joined by neighbours and friends, stood up in solidarity with the people in Iran who are risking their lives in the honourable fight for freedom. This year, a group of Iranian-Canadian artists will be presenting a limited selection of their works inspired by the endurance, courage, and honorable defiance of the Iranian people.

Unveiling Honour is a contemporary Iranian art exhibition in support of the ongoing defiance of Iranian people in Vancouver, BC. All participating artists will donate a portion of their sales to support nonprofit organizations that advocate for women, children, and the people of Iran. We invite all communities to join us at Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre on 21st to 23rd of March 2023 for this cause.

THE IDENTITY BUREAU is a bold, existential, theatrical production that explores the importance of one’s identity. Set in the very near future, the Identity Bureau is a place that assigns identities and traits to all citizens. It’s the last day citizens can make identity updates and pay fines before the big system overhaul. Meant to create calm, the Bureau creates chaos as we witness the absurdity of not simply deciding to be who we truly are. Created by artist-in-residence Valerie Methot with several youth and artists, this theatre piece engages and entertains with relevant content, humour, music, and inspiration. Celebrating its 23rd season, Some Assembly’s theatre collaborations between youth and professional artists promote awareness, wellness, dialogue, and positive social change about issues facing youth.

A collaboration between Metro Vancouver Youth and Some Assembly Theatre Company with artists: Valerie Methot, Susan Bertoia, Allen Morrison, Matt Clarke, Heather McCrae, Sally Zori, Nik McLaren, Tina Biello, Anna Talbot, Sophie Labrie, Brogan Ho, Joe Baker, Lauren Preissl, Heather McCrae, Jeremy Baxter, Duane Murrin, and Patrick Graham.

Some Assembly thanks the Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation, Ministry of Children and Family Development, City of Vancouver, BC Arts Council, Province of British Columbia, CLICK and Hamber Foundation, Grosvenor, Canada Council for the Arts and the private donors for funding this project as well as community partners The Roundhouse, Vancouver Coastal Health, Methotical Productions, Sarah McLachlan School of Music, Scene Ideas Inc., and the Vancouver School Board for their support and collaboration.
