About 8EAST

8EAST, a social space for new culture. Music. Art. Ideas.

8EAST is a joint project of the New Orchestra Workshop (NOW) Society and the UNIT/PITT Society for Art and Critical Awareness. 8EAST serves as a meeting place and a performance space. We operate a retail store for the sale of items produced by the artists, musicians, writers and cultural workers in our communities.

We gratefully and respectfully acknowledge that 8EAST is located in the heart of Historic Chinatown on the traditional and unceded Indigenous lands of the the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
