Dumpster Art Party Tonight!


“Saturday 30th June, 4-9pm at Station Square

A live interactive painting event at Station Square!

Over the years almost 40 dumpster and recycling bins have been transformed into works of art. At this live painting weekend, artists will prep dumpsters and start painting on the evenings of Thursday and Friday, with pop-up DJs building the atmosphere. The main event is on Saturday from 4-9pm with a beer tent, DJs, kids crafts, and chance for all to join in painting the community Dumpster.

Come out to watch artist’s visions come to life and vote for your favorite – there’s a $500 people’s choice award up for grabs for the winning design.

This year the Dumpster painting will be an evening event with DJs, a beer garden and kids’ Dumpster Trail activity.

Come by between 4 and 9pm to see the dumpsters painted live and contribute to the community dumpster.

Fernie Lantern Festival – Into The Woods – A Search For Volunteers


The Fernie Lantern Festival is an event I look forward to. I’ve been on the committee from the beginning and I hope to stay on for as long as they’ll have me.

It’s a wonderful evening but a lot of people, time and creative energy goes into making it happen. That’s my segue into:

If you’re interested in being part of the lantern team, either offering your talents (which can be anything from construction, to electrical, to smaller odds and ends that need to be done) we would love to hear from you!

email brinaschenk at gmail for more details

Don’t forget, the first community build is tonight. It’s a place to go to find materials that you can use to make your own lantern. Make one in one evening or take your time over multiple nights. We have a few community builds planned. Here is the list:

Thursday, October 20th 6-9pm (meet upstairs)
Monday, October 24th, 6-9 (meet in theatre from this night on)
