Gallery News

February 7th, 2014: Pacific Peoples’ Partnership presents a screening of Isolated and the homecoming performance of Pedalling for Papua.

Isolated follows elite world surfers on a journey to find remote waves around the islands of Indonesia, where they discover West Papua and its human rights atrocities, unethical mining corporations and political injustice. Pedalling for Papua is an international bicycling and performance tour which concluded in December 2013. Campaigner Jeremy Bally travelled nearly 20,000 kilometers on bicycle to share the story of West Papua around the world. Bally has returned home to share his experiences on the road, as well as the performance itself, with local audiences. The performance and movie event is an opportunity for audiences to see many sides of this complex, tragic and beautiful story through the eyes of explorers, athletes and storytellers.

The Tour includes stops in Victoria, Tofino and Vancouver as follows:

February 13, 2014 - VICTORIA | Victoria Event Centre (1415 Broad Street, Victoria BC), Door at 6:30 pm Show at 7:00 pm Tickets $10 in Advance or $15 at the Door. A free lunch and learn event will also be held at noon at the University of Victoria, Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives.
