Fernie's artistic minds came together to bring us a weekly Quarantine Social on Saturdays. The lineup looks a little something like this:
Open Studio Time has moved online!
For all your virtual creative connection needs, we are hosting open studio via zoom on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm.
As part of #soloartstreak, this is a great time for you to connect with other creatives, show what you've been working on, chat with each other, or just sit in silence while you draw/paint/knit/underwater basket weave!

Avalanche Canada will issue its final forecast for the season on March 28, which is about a month earlier than normal. The final three-day forecast will remain in effect until March 30.
Avalanche Canada’s forecasts rely primarily on data from a network of avalanche professionals across western Canada. The early closure of backcountry operations due to the Covid-19 pandemic has cut off much of that data stream, so the warning service is no longer receiving enough information to issue accurate forecasts.
In response to COVID-19, Columbia Basin Trust is postponing the public engagement process to renew its strategic plan, including community meetings scheduled this spring and the two regional Symposia this fall.
