Not a “Jean Zine”


Creativity flows through Gastown’s dutil. In the past year, dutil’s storefronts were transformed into a music venue for the launch of the dutil.Records label, and an art gallery for the First Annual Denim + Art Event. This time, dutil has collaborated with local artists, writers, and beer enthusiasts to compile their first ever zine. Visit dutil at 303 W. Cordova St. to pick up your copy of their first ever zine!
