Are you a teen interested in entering the Banner Project but not quite sure how to go about it? This live Teen Banner Project Session is for you! Tara Higgins will walk you through the steps and help work around a theme.

They would really love to see teen artists have a presence at the Banner Project this year. The feedback I've gotten is that they many would love to submit a piece of art or photography but are pretty stymied and overwhelmed by the process. So, they've put this special Banner Project session together just for teens.

What this means for musicians is that you will look good on stream, but you won’t sound good. Until the big players decide that the audio quality of live streams is as important to the feed as the video and adjust the algorithm to compensate, we are unfortunately stuck with terrible-to-mediocre sound. 

Chili, short for Chilcotin, is a well-known long time canine community member. She was adopted from the BCSPCA as a pup and she’s been calling Fernie home for the past 13 years. Back in the day, Chili used to start almost every morning by trotting over to her neighbours’ houses and jumping on their beds so she could sleep in with them. Mornings have never been her thing. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a reliable food supply and has increased the demand for locally grown products. To help Columbia Basin food producers meet this call, Columbia Basin Trust is introducing two new programs: one that provides loans for operational and equipment needs and one that provides wage subsidies to hire workers.
