Yoga and beer. Bootcamp and beer. Axe throwing… and beer. October is Craft Beer Month in Whistler which means pretty much anything that reminds you of our fave mountain getaway gets a little better with the addition of a cold one. There’s over 40 events scattered throughout the month so it’s easy to pass the time with a goofy smile of your face as we wait for the white stuff to arrive.

Woven and beaded objects reign in this new North Van art exhibition. It challenges the idea that this kind of work only exists in a historical context, and curator Adele ᒪᐢᑿᓱᐏᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau aims to bring the art (and the current living cultures that practice it) into the spotlight. Participating artists include Adele ᒪᐢᑿᓱᐏᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau, Nathalie Bertin, Naomi Bourque, Salisha Old Bull (work pictured above), Melody Markle and Michelle Sound.
