Pixel Virtual Festival - July 9/10/11, 2020
Please join us in raising funds for the BC Civil Liberties Association during the Pixel Virtual Festival presented by Bass Coast. We’ve chosen an organization that defends the civil liberties and human rights of Black, Indigenous and people of colour in BC and Canada.
From July 9 - 12 Bass Coast is raising funds for the BC Civil Liberties Association. Donate here if you can help.
To donate to Bass Coast at a later date, please visit the site after July 12.
"The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association is the oldest and most active human rights organization in Canada. The BCCLA’s mandate is to promote, defend, sustain, and extend civil liberties and human rights in British Columbia and Canada. We do this through law reform advocacy, test case litigation, court inventions, complaint assistance and community education.
Currently, we are closely watching the government’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. There have also been drastic changes to privacy laws, and policing and surveillance are on the rise. We want to make sure the most vulnerable, including precarious workers, refugees, prisoners, homeless people, seniors, people with disabilities, women and trans people escaping violence, and Indigenous communities are not left behind or disproportionately impacted.
Your gift supports the creation of resources and factsheets. It supports advocacy work and public education initiatives. It supports letters to government officials and phone calls to community partners as we team up in this fight. It’s so important that no one is left behind in the response to this pandemic and that unreasonable government overreach is held to account. Together we can look out for each other and keep each other safe."
Presenting Pixel Virtual Festival July 9-11, 2020
Bass Coast is pleased to present: Pixel Virtual Festival on July 9-11, 2020. The online programming will take place on the same dates that Bass Coast Festival had been scheduled before cancelling due to COVID-19. Free to attend, Pixel Virtual Festival will feature innovative dj sets, movement workshops, a panel discussion on anti-racism, a workshop on mental health, an art installation discussion panel, and the opportunity for the festival community to connect with each other online. Special programming on July 9th will be co-hosted by Twenty Twenty Global - a digital residency curated by the team at 20/20 LDN Recordings. The team broadcasts a weekly magazine of Hip-Hop inspired Electronica / Alt Rap / Leftfield Bass / Visual Arts / Dance.
“Bass Coast isn’t just a weekend festival, it’s a culture that thrives year round. With the cancellation of all festivals this summer it’s more important than ever to gather,” says Bass Coast co-founder Liz Thomson. “We thrive on connection and Pixel Virtual Festival gives us a platform to interact with each other online while experiencing the best of Bass Coast: thoughtfully curated music and thought provoking workshops.”
Participants will have the option to donate to the BC Civil Liberties Association. “We acknowledge electronic music is a culture invented and nurtured by black and queer artists, and will be raising funds for the BC Civil Liberties Association,” says Andrea Graham, Co Founder of Bass Coast Festival. “They are the oldest and most active human rights organization in Canada. This is an essential organization at this time because their mandate is to promote, defend, sustain, and extend civil liberties and human rights in British Columbia and Canada.”
The full music line up and program will be released July 7th. “We are excited to unveil the full line up next week. The roster is a diverse offering of Bass Coast alumni artists featuring house music, techno, jungle, soul, funk, bass, and more,” says Graham.
