Tents – Setting Up A Future

Through micro-enterprise, the Vancouver Downtown Eastside Street Market is creating opportunities for individuals to live with purpose, participate in their communities, and earn income in a meaningful way to combat the cycle of poverty.

This micro-documentary hopes to shed light and awareness into an area the National Post calls “Vancouver’s ‘gulag’. Headlines like “Canada’s poorest neighbourhood refuses to get better despite $1M a day in social spending” continue to dominate the narrative and further isolate, perpetuating the stimga of the Downtown Eastside.
