Join an on-the-water, paddle powered music festival!
RAVEN is paddle-powered! Bringing together allied businesses and impassioned community members, we're hosting a series of floating concerts in communities all over to raise funds and awareness for Indigenous-led legal challenges.
Ready to Grab a Paddle for Indigenous justice?
In summer 2020, RAVEN held a floating concert that brought people together in the midst of a pandemic to have a safe, fun concert experience. Since that first show, we've held 10 concerts raising over $80k for Indigenous justice.
From protecting the seabed and foreshore in Heiltsuk’s Great Bear Rainforest to pushing back against non-consensual mining in Gitxa’ala territory, RAVEN’s on-the-water events are using the power of the crowd to protect coastal ecosystems and communities.
With 6 feet of distance between each paddle-powered watercraft, this is a safe and fun way to gather friends and community in celebration of the beautiful waters where you live, in support of Indigenous sovereignty and environmental protection.
