Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty
+ Calendar 05/05/2018 01:00 PM 05/05/2018 06:00 PM America/Vancouver Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty WHAT: On May 5 and 6, hundreds of thousands around the globe will march together in the second "Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty"; a charitable walk hosted by the international religious organization Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC or Church Of Christ). An expected 358 sites around the globe in 44 countries, 33 territories and across 18 time zones will simultaneously host the multi Guinness World Record event. The first Worldwide Walk was recognized as the largest charity walk across multiple venues held in 24 hours. The 2014 event had 519,221 participants from 129 sites across the world, situated in 16 countries. This year’s Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty is aimed to beat its own records. Proceeds of the Second Worldwide Walk will be used to continue providing food and medical assistance for those in immediate need in impoverished communities.

So grab some friends (or make some new ones) but be sure to register early as space is limited! The ticket price covers your materials to participate, a beverage (non-alcoholic options available) and some light appetizers. If you have questions feel free to call us at 604-525-0760. Registration can be done through Eventbrite, by phone, or in person at Craft Cafe. Workshops are led by Craft Cafe unless a guest artist is otherwise specified. ********************************************************** NOTE: Ticket purchases are final sale. Some sessions will require a minimum number of participants for the event to run. In the case a session doesn't run a refund will be issued. Should you not be able to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.

Ink & Drink: Paper Marbling Edition

2018-05-14 - 2018-05-14
06:30pm -09:30pm
Wild Rice at River Market, 810 Qayside Drive

Paint and Sips are a popular way for all skill levels to get creative while being social. We have for you a unique twist: Ink & Drink - a monthly series of changing creative projects.

For the May session, participants will have the opportunity to create marbled paper while enjoying some refreshments. Inspired by suminagashi, the ancient Japapanese art of decorating paper by floating ink on water, we’ll explore some of the materials and techniques used in this process.

So grab some friends (or make some new ones) but be sure to register early as space is limited!

The ticket price covers your materials to participate, a beverage (non-alcoholic options available) and some light appetizers. If you have questions feel free to call us at 604-525-0760. Registration can be done through Eventbrite, by phone, or in person at Craft Cafe.

Workshops are led by Craft Cafe unless a guest artist is otherwise specified.

**********************************************************
NOTE: Ticket purchases are final sale. Some sessions will require a minimum number of participants for the event to run. In the case a session doesn't run a refund will be issued.

In a novel that has a lot of characters, readers can have a hard time keeping track unless there are clear distinctions. When you introduce a new character, you must provide a clear impression of that character's uniqueness. Characters, even in fantasy stories, need to seem ‘real.’ Try to create characters so memorable that they stay in the readers' minds for the rest of their lives. What is their back-story? What made them like they are? How do they speak? What do they think about? What are their aspirations? All of these things are important ingredients in building characters.

What is the Flood Management Strategy for the Fraser River?
+ Calendar 05/31/2018 06:00 PM 05/31/2018 09:00 PM America/Vancouver What is the Flood Management Strategy for the Fraser River? Potential flooding is already in the news across BC, but projections to the year 2100 are for larger and more frequent floods in the region that could cause widespread disruption and trigger direct and indirect losses estimated at $20-30+ billion — four to five times the losses from the Alberta floods of 2013. These daunting findings come from a phase 1 (2016) report of the Lower Mainland Flood Management Strategy initiative, which has the participation of over 50 governmental and non-government entities and program support from the non-profit Fraser Basin Council. Given the critical nature of this issue, the Fraser River Discovery Centre has invited Steve Litke, Senior Program Manager for the Fraser Basin Council at our next Fraser River Dialogue on the evening of Thursday, May 31st at the Fraser River Discovery Centre in New Westminster to talk about next steps in development of the regional Flood Management Strategy – and what is needed to better manage flood risk and increase community resilience. Tickets to this event include: -Wine and cheese reception (no-host bar) -Self-guided tour of the new working river exhibit, Journey Through the Working River -A seat at the fire-side chat Tickets to this important event can be purchased at http://fraserriverdiscovery.org/FRD.
