Beginning her tenure in 2010, Kay Higgins has led notable projects such as UNIT/PITT Radio, the 2055 Project for UNIT/PITT’s 40 Year Anniversary, the return of Wrong Wave Festival and ISSUE Magazine, the Art & Community Reading Group series, the #tearitdown2018 poster project, and more recently the relocation of UNIT/PITT to 8EAST in 2018.
In May we welcomed multi-disciplinary artist, writer and former Editor-in-Chief of Discorder Magazine Brit Bachmann, whose practice includes ceramics, radio art and community organizing. Brit is committed to instigating critical public dialogue, and working with diverse and emerging artists and writers to continue UNIT/PITT’s trajectory for many years to come!
Hello! Goodbye! also marks UNIT/PITT’S one-year anniversary at 8EAST with NOW Society. Hello! Goodbye! will raise funds towards health care benefits which UNIT/PITT’s Board of Directors have identified as an ongoing priority for the well-being of UNIT/PITT’s staff, and to ensure equitable and sustainable growth and higher working standards within the organization and more broadly, within the non-profit arts sector.
UNIT/PITT is grateful for opportunities to host events and artist projects, though we respectfully acknowledge that our activities take place on the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
UNIT/PITT is located at 8 East Pender Street in Chinatown, Vancouver. It is on ground-level, no stairs. Our main door measures 34 inches and swings inward. The bathroom is not wheelchair accessible. There will be seating available. Please contact [email protected] to make arrangements to accommodate your needs.
