Community Connection - FOLKLIFE Magazine Inquiry

We're starting up a new magazine!

FOLKLIFE is a biannual print magazine inspired by the slow, sustainable, and artistic intentional living on British Columbia’s Gulf Islands. With its beautiful, minimalist design, poetic editorial, and vibrant photography, readers trust FOLKLIFE to be a window into the salty wild, showcasing art and agriculture, business and creativity, food and farming, and dwellings and nature. Each issue explores one theme through engaging interviews, stories, photographs, recipes, and artwork, celebrating and connecting those living simply and as an art form.

I am based on Gabriola Island and aim for the magazine to have a great balance of all gulf island content, and therefore would like to familiarize myself with not only Lasqueti, but the people on the island who have good contacts, insight, and information on the fabulous things going on. This could include story ideas, writers, photographers, and anyone else that might be a good fit for insight into the project.

Check out the landing page: folklifemag.ca

If you're in the know on all things Lasqueti or have an interest in being involved, please let me know! info [at] folklifemag [dot] ca

Walking Drum

Richard's snare drum seems to have been borrowed from the hotel...it's neither fancy nor expensive, but it really is an essential for the drum kit. Return much appreciated.
