Fernie & District Arts Council
601 1st Ave

In April, Arts BC came to Fernie to present the Fernie Cultural Forum at The Arts Station, in collaboration with the Fernie & District Arts Council. Facilitator, Patricia Huntsman shared her vast knowledge of cultural planning and the cultural sector with a range of stakeholders including City of Fernie, Fernie Heritage Society, Tourism Fernie, Fernie Heritage Library, artists and other local arts groups. It was great to see so many community representatives wanting to learn more about Cultural Planning and how to successfully make that happen.

By working together on a cultural vision in Fernie, the Fernie & District Arts Council hopes we can support and enhance the already vibrant cultural scene. Look out for upcoming Cultural Round Tables to continue the conversation on culture, including the Arts in Fernie.

East Kootenay Hypnobirthing

Preparing for the journey into parenthood can be a time of excitement and joy for some, and for others of anxiety and uncertainty. Often our society equates labour and birth with fear and pain and that a pregnant person should be fearful of the birthing process. But what if there was another way?

HypnoBirthing, the Mongan Method® is a childbirth education course focused on developing the mind-body connection through six areas: education, relaxation, breathing, affirmations, guided imagery, and self-hypnosis. This May and August, Sally Bevand CD(DONA) is offering this course in Fernie, allowing a birthing person and their partner to release fearful thoughts, learn about the mechanisms involved in birth, and why labour is perceived as painful. They also learn a range of techniques to help prepare for and use during labour to change the sensations of birth, guide the body’s birthing muscles and mind towards a calm, gentle birth.
