Price Talks Ep21: Working in Vancouver’s ‘Liminal Space’ of the DTES & Community Economic Development

Wes Regan on working in Vancouver’s DTES and Community Economic Development.

As a guest on Price Talks I talk about my experience over the last 10 years working at the intersections of public health, poverty, economic development and planning on the Price Talks podcast with editor Colin Stein (Formerly of the Vancouver Economic Commission and Downtown Kingston BIA).

“In a rite of passage, ‘liminal’ refers to the transition point that is neither here nor there; a threshold that can result in multiple interpretations or outcomes, and thus (often) confusion. In this episode, Wes Regan, Social Planner responsible for Community Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Initiatives with the City of Vancouver, aptly uses this word to describe his work space at the downtown Woodward’s Building and, by extension, the city’s current approach to community economic development (CED).”
