Open Letter: All-ages music venue in Vancouver

Dear Vancouver Mayor and Council,

I am writing to ask that space be set aside in this year’s Capital Plan for an all-ages music venue in Vancouver. I firmly believe that Vancouver’s youth would benefit tremendously from a legal, sustainable, affordable and accessible all-ages music venue.

As a young person growing up in inner-city Indianapolis, all-ages venues were a godsend. But they were unstable and unpredictable. The Emerson was the best one - but it was only all-ages for about a year, which meant we went back to walking the streets and pestering the staff at the Waffle House to hang out. Then there were the churches that would become all-ages venues for a month here or a month there, but it was never predictable. And again, we’d be out on the streets - finding other ways to keep boredom at bay. 

We got into a lot of trouble when we had no place to go - and I’m convinced we wouldn’t have done half the drugs we did had we had other opportunities for entertainment.

When we had music venues to go to, we were exposed to a world of culture - and those are experiences that helped shaped my lifestyle for the rest of my life. They taught me to appreciate the arts and music - and got me into the habit of spending money to see live shows. This is a habit I continue as an adult - which puts money into pockets of artists and supports the local economy in an important way. 

I look forward to participating in public discussion for the need to create safe spaces for youth and adults to share live music experiences together with my friends and colleagues - in person and online. It would be wonderful for the city to facilitate such discussion.

Thank you for your consideration.

From this angle, the bridge appears so tranquil, so serene. And yet simultaneously, up top, it’s like a torrent, a thunderstorm of traffic. #perspectives (at Lions Gate Bridge)
