SafeSpace Love Fundraising Event


Saturday, June 8

6PM - 10PM

1025 Elias Street


Visit 1025 Elias Street this June 8 to support your local Safe Space. Forest City Gallery, Odyssey Records, Brown & Dickson, Back to the Fuchsia, and a legion of true-blue buddies are organizing this fundraising event for SafeSpace. Come out and spend time in this wonderful neck of OEV, and support a local non-profit delivering on-the-ground supports to the community.


SafeSpace London is a volunteer run support centre for sex workers, allies, and women in crisis. As some have astutely recalled, it was originally housed in the beloved arts and music hub, East Village Arts Collective (or EVAC), a champion for creativity, collaboration, community support, and mutual aid in Old East Village.


1025 Elias will be hosting live performances as well as an on-site auction and/or art sale. 100% of proceeds will go to SafeSpace. Tickets to this event will be $20, or $15 with a donation of a needed item. Contact info@forestcitygallery.com if you require a subsidized ticket (capacity limited).



Purchase discounted tickets here ($15) (available with an additional donated item).
