The 3rd Annual Back Alley Artists Night:
The Back Alley Artists Night is an annual, one night showcase brought to you by The Purple Stapler. It features the work of visual artists, filmmakers, slam poets, performance art and musicians from the Lower Mainland and provides an opportunity for cross discipline networking while celebrating amazing artists.
