On July 6th, 2013 The Artery live music venue in Edmonton hosted their 1 Year Anniversary Party: a celebration of live local musicians, artists, and cuisine. A plethora of bands played from 3:00pm until close, while local Edmonton artists displayed artwork for the silent auction. By 5:00pm people were lining up for delicious tacos catered by Tres Carnales. The
The Artery also featured Hollaback Alberta! and gave us a wonderful space to raise awareness about our organization as well as how we are fighting against street harassment in the community. The Artery is a very supportive ally to Hollaback Alberta!, continually creating a safe, friendly, and respectful environment for everyone to enjoy.
Special thanks to the one and only Phil, who continually supports local non-profits, live music, artists of different mediums (including puppets!) and creates a wonderful atmosphere in his venue. Check The Artery on Facebook as well as twitter (@ArteryEdmonton) for updates on local shows and events!
A big thank-you to the Hollaback Alberta! volunteers and supporters who helped during the all-day anniversary event!

Ending street harassment is good!
