THRIVE is a brand new event-based initiative focused on amplifying underrepresented communities within Vancouver’s nightlife industry. We aspire to create a space where diverse innovators and artists can thrive in as individuals, and celebrate a culture of resistance and change. Community, visibility, and inclusivity is what we stand by! We’re here to push normative boundaries and help creatives THRIVE- regardless of the communities they belong to!
Our Mission – Our goal is to celebrate and showcase events with as many non-binary, female-identifying, LGBTQ+, and BIPOC performers as possible. We believe Vancouver’s event scene should be as diverse as Vancouver itself. THRIVE’s aim is to highlight local events belonging to communities that are typically under-represented within the nightlife scene, all while keeping you up to date with the best parties and celebrations our city has to offer!
Join us this Saturday via live stream for the official launch party and fundraiser streaming LIVE from Dolly at 8pm PT! The dance party will feature performances by JustKawz, Maiden China, Paisley Eva, Prado & more! All funds raised will be evenly distributed between the Black Therapy Fund, the Indigenous Care Fund, and the Emergency Care Fund for the DTES. So “drop by”, tear up your make-shift living room dance floor, and party for a great cause! We’ll see you soon!
