Move On Up Series 2006

Uprising Parties for the Soul @ MAXX FISH

The Move On Up series was four parties organized by Hilltrip at the newly re-designed and re-opened Maxx Fish Lounge & Club. Moving up from Step 1 to 4, these events were uprising funk parties for the soul whose purpose was to raise awareness and money to fight global warming trough its Carbon Offset Program. With over $4,200 raised, there’s no daub these events were a success.

The first tree events (January 20th, February 24th, and March 24th) featured DJ Mr Fister (a.k.a. Chili Thom) for Step 1 and 2, and DJ Rob Banks for Step 3. To keep the night's energy moving up, go go dancers Lexi Moon and KLC grooved to the uprising tunes. During the evenings a live auction was hosted by Hilltrip's collaborator Rainbo to raise money while educating about Hilltrip's quest to improve the sustainability of our mountain lifestyle.

To finish it up, the forth event was on Earth Day, April 22nd, which happened to be on the last Saturday of the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival. For this last event, world renowned DJ Mat The Alien played and the place was decorated with colourful flowers and plants. During the evening there was an O’Neill Bikini Fashion Show, raffle and the auction of Stan Matwychuck’s original art piece which was done live that day in Whistler Village especially for Earth Day.

Prizes for the live auction and raffle included items from Whistler Hemp Company, O’Neill, Farfalla, Twice-Shy, Billabong, SMS Clothing, Gauge Clothing, Prior, Gnarcore Videoplay, Showcase Snowboards, Whistler Bungee and Whistler Eco-Tours.

The Positive Creation Input
For those who have been following the series of events, they may have noticed Hilltrip was using the same visuals for the advertising of all the Move On Up parties. The art work was Chris Dyer’s skateboard art piece named “Party Entities”. Chris Dyer came to Whistler to participate at Action2 in the fall of 2005 and Hilltrip’s founder Marie Fortin liked his work so much that she bought the original piece and created the poster and flyer design from it.

Inspired by his life and surroundings, Chris Dyer goal in life is to travel the world living off his art and love, hopefully waking the mass consciousness back to a positive balance. For more information visit his website
