Breaking Boundaries in Three Unconventional Ways

Some say rules are meant to be broken. Others will adhere to them even in the most dire situations. One thing is certain: there is something weird, but satisfying about breaking boundaries. The following three events follow along the concept of boundaries and rules, but no obviously so.

St. Patrick goes punk (?!)

Sure, the month of March often tolls bells and stories of Saint Patrick’s day, but have you ever heard of Saint Patrick’s Day going punk? Neither have we, until now (and three years ago, when all this first started)! Head on over to the Rickshaw on March 15 and 16 for some Saint Patrick’s Day (and weekend) celebrations through punk/Iris/ska bands. With the Dreadnoughts as the headliners, you are sure to get what you asked for. Tickets are from $20 – $30 and you must be 19+ (with ID) to attend. If that’s not one way to break boundaries, then who knows what will qualify.

Cyber Security Conference

Let’s take this a little more literally: security is all about accessibility and who has access to what information, right? Well what better way to learn about these types of boundaries than to have a conference about it? For the sixth year, BSides Vancouver is back for 2019. This full two-day event is for anyone interested (both experienced and new) in cyber security. With tickets ranging from $25 to $150 it is up to you how much you want to give and take away; that boundary is yours to break. So take the plunge, and join in on some fun games, prizes, and as a bonus, see the leading women at BSides.

Ella Vos comes to Vancouver

And as a reminder to everyone across North America, March is Women’s History month. While it is fairly self-explanatory, it should be emphasized that this month is meant to highlight contributions of women to major historical events and even greater changes to society. Ella Vos, a rising star, comes to Vancouver. While she might not be quite the symbol many would choose for Women’s History Month, her lyrics sometimes bring snide remarks to the current socio-political ongoings of 2017.

With all these events spread out through some of the odd reaches of the city, it may be difficult finding a central place to find accommodations. Thankfully, the Quality Inn & Suites Vancouver Downtown is situated right at the throbbing heart of the downtown core. Pick a pleasant room with enough space for your to spread yourself like a starfish on the bed– because why not? Break some boundaries.
