Last Friday the staff of Proscenium did a scavenger hunt out in New Westminster. We learnt about some New West history and architecture, then had a fabulous time at Steele & Oak where we drank excellent beer, ate some delicious BBQ and enjoyed the sunny weather.

Last week Proscenium organized a clothing and item drive for the WISH Charity. The WISH Charity focuses exclusively on aiding female sex workers by providing a non-judgemental place where they can get nutritious hot meals, showers and hygiene items and clothing. They also help by providing an on-site nurse, referrals to detox centres/rehabilitation houses and shelters for upwards of 150 women.

Thank you to all of our collaborators and friends that dropped off clothing and items to our office May 4th-8th!
