Remember what it's it like to have your head in the clouds, not a care in the world, a crayon in your hand, a booger in your nose and to not be afraid to let your imagination run wild. This all ages collaborative exploration in clouds through visuals, textile art, sculpture, sound and street wear is based on the themes of: Imagination, dreams, vulnerability, presence, nostalgia, and self reflection. Swing by, enjoy some music, cartoons, style and art.

The Toast is a storefront with the following measurements:
-Front Door 40 inches across
-Bathroom Door 27.5 inches across, very small bathroom area, door opens inwards
-Kitchen Door 36 inches across
-There is a 6.5 inch step at the front entrance, there is a portable ramp to use to accommodate this step

This event takes place on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded homelands of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way. As we organize, we also remember the historical and ongoing colonial genocide against Indigenous peoples that make it possible for us to be here as settlers.
