Our poetic love of the city links us necessarily to Oppenheimer Park. In “this park of great care” (1) we consider spatial scales for struggle of a neighbourhood through to and beyond the nation state. Dispossession, mass assembly, internment, harm reduction, institutionalization, displacement, sovereign presence are present threads in the Downtown Eastside Oppenheimer District. Heart of the low-income community for a reason, it is the only neighbourhood in Vancouver ostensibly protected against real estate development by city policy. This program reveals longstanding relationships of care and honours the many, women especially, who have entwined arts and social organizing at the park.

~ Ali Lohan and Cecily Nicholson
