Prohab is going to Calgary!

Prohab is teaming up with Sled Island Festival and AMA in Calgary, Alberta!
We’ll be providing helmets by donation to festival attendees at the Olympic Plaza outdoor stage on Friday June 24th from 3pm-8pm, and Saturday June 25th, from 12pm-8pm. Also, look for us cycling around Calgary with our trailer of helmets during the fest!
As always, all donations received will go towards acquiring more helmets for more heads

The Prohab Helmet Show recap

First of all, Thank you very much to everyone who came out on Friday to the new and beautiful Modus Studios! The event was a huge success, with over 350 (estimated) people through the doors over the course of the night.

We’re also very happy to announce that every helmet was sold!
Thank you so much to all the artists who participated, all of the work was amazing, and so varied from piece to piece. Keep an eye out for their next showings!

You can see some photos from the first half of the night on The Georgia Straight’s website, taken by Jon Cranny.

It was a new venture for us to organize and curate an art show. It couldn’t have been accomplished without the support of the community, and our event sponsors, Scion Canada & Ultra X-Press Printing.

Our next event is the 2011 Calendar release party, which will be November 5th 2010, at The Astoria. Save the date!

Prohab Helmet Show

Prohab Helmet show

Hey everyone! We have a big big announcement!!

Friday September 17th, 2010.
The Prohab Helmet Society proudly presents:

The Prohab Helmet Show!
(click the link for the Facebook event)

We’ve been wanting to make this happen for a long long time, and it’s finally coming together!

Here’s what’s going down.
We’ve given blank helmets to seven of our favorite Vancouver artists to create/decorate/reinterpret as they please. The only rule given was the finished helmets must be able to be used for their intended purpose: being worn on heads, of course!
The helmets will be sold during the night through a silent auction, with the proceeds being split 50/50 to the artist and Prohab.

Featuring:
Randy Grskovic
Peter Taylor
Vincent Parker
Andy Dixon
Coreena Lewis
Ben Skinner
Graeme Berglund

DJs Neil Hillbrandt & Kellen Powell (Blastramp, Make it Count!), and NiƱa Mendoza will be playing some tunes for mingling and there will be a few kegs at low low starving artist prices!
Come by and have some drinks before the bar or stay all night.
That said, please do respect the gallery and all art inside, this isn’t a frat party.

Doors at 8pm, Goes til 1am
at the brand new MODUS STUDIOS at 206 Carrall!

See you there!

This event couldn’t happen without our generous sponsors:

Scion Canada
&
Ultra X-Press Printing
Thank you!
