Another Slow Food Cycle Sunday event in the books. Nearly 4,000 riders showed up to Pemberton for this lovely event. We feel lucky to be able to create the yearly logo design for the event while working with Anna Helmer and Niki VanKerk to bring the knowledge to the general public of where our food comes from. www.slowfoodcyclesunday.com
We were lucky enough to participate in this year's State of the Art, Art Exhibit at the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler this Spring. It's an amazing opportunity to be featured with some amazing artists from far and wide. "There are no rules and this is not a paint-inside-the-lines event. Sub-cultures and anti-movements are celebrated and portrayed in gritty and thought-provoking mediums." It's my favorite event in Whistler each year.

The proceeds go to the Montana Skate Park Association and the Red Cross for Japan Earthquake Relief... This is the last week! Check it:
Aki just informed me that they had raised over $1,000 from the raffle alone for relief funds to the crisis in Japan on Pecha Kucha Night this past Monday! So awesome. Here is the link to the page: http://www.wssf.com/event/pecha-kucha-1. It is a series of 20 second presentations with images and words. Aki described it as a "powerpoint presentation on crack". Very entertaining. See you there next year! Background info: PechaKucha, devised in 2003 and named for the sound of ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, is the worldwide phenomenon held in hundreds of cities worldwide. A rapid fire form of PowerPoint presentation and connection, PechaKucha allows for 20 images at 20 seconds each then onto the next speaker. Now held as a massive celebration and opportunity for young designers and entrepreneurs to meet, network and show their work in public, PechaKucha delivers on all levels, keeping the concept grassroots, passionate and high-speed. Update: Thanks to everyone for coming out last night, best PechaKucha Night ever! We raised over $1500 for the Canadian Red Cross so thanks for all your support, follow @pknwhistler on Twitter to get updates on upcoming events.
New work is being shown at the Telus Conference Centre. The opening reception begins tomorrow at 8PM and the show runs for a week. Telus Fest, is my personal favorite festival Whistler offers. It always has an amazing music line up as well as art and athletic show down. It basically showcases everything I love about life. I hope to see you tomorrow night. http://www.wssf.com/event/state-art Featured artists include: Amy Ruppel Andrea Mueller Ben Frey Ben Tour - MURAL Color Magazine feat.

Get Ready Pemberton..."On The Sopranos, “getting made” was the initiation ritual, the way someone became part of the group. You don’t have to swing with mafiosos to get made in Pemberton… Being identified as part of Pemby-town is as easy as showing up at MADE, the annual art showcase.Music, Art, Dance, Expression: that’s what’s getting MADE in Pemberton, and showcased at the funkiest live art show in funky town.Pemberton’s across-the-board arty-love-in is no surprise to anyone who has attended the Pemberton Arts Council’s annual MADE event. MADE stands for Music Art Dance Expression, and the Community Centre gets a boho make-over every November, as it fills with funky energy and exhibits.MADE in Pemberton returns for its third year on Saturday, November 27, 2010. Anyone keen to participate can contact Moldy. Get the details by joining the Pemberton Arts Council on facebook."
