Experience - Upcoming Events

Join us for a rare opportunity to spend some time with one of Canada's most influential photographers. Freeman's presentation is titled "The Call to Creativity". It's a program he has presented in several countries – Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel, France, England, Canada, and the USA.

Freeman will begin his presentation with a talk about the nature of creativity and ways to nurture and develop the creativity with which we all are born. He includes stories of people who have used their creativity under great difficulty to benefit others and follows this with a series of photographs (with commentary) that illustrate his main points and reveal how both the symbols in our dreams and the symbols in our art tell our life story.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online from our website (see below). If available, tickets will also be sold at the door.

Vancouver Island’s folk rock band Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices, Christopher Arruda, Cory Woodward and Ryan McMahon, joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative, and unbridled passion. Originally known for their respective solo careers, they have joined forces, going to war on stage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability, and redemption. Media has called them “a musical force of nature” and an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be around for a lifetime”.

The City of Burlington is inviting residents to learn about a new and exciting opportunity to participate in “the Blue Zone” at a special event on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019, at 7 p.m. at LaSalle Banquet Centre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Join City of Burlington staff, community organizations and fellow residents to learn how Blue Zones are gaining popularity around the world for helping to put communities back in control of their health and well-being and how Burlington could be a great place to implement a Blue Zone Project. Blue Zone Projects get the most out of the setting that we spend our time in, our “life radius,” helping to make the healthy choices easier, and naturally adopt healthier behaviours together as a community.

Blue Zones have been successful in 49 cities throughout the U.S. in improving health for communities like improving physical activity levels, nutrition, mental health and reducing smoking and other harmful behaviours. Blue Zones also help to create and foster a sense of belonging within communities.

Communities that are healthy and vibrant are more attractive to investment, workplaces, families and tourists.

The one-hour presentation, lead by Tony Buettner, Blue Zones National Spokesperson, will inspire and motivate participants to lead real, meaningful, healthy, science-driven change within their community.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to reserve your seat through Event Bright. There is no cost for this event.
