Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Arts Alive 2018

Arts Alive 2018

Arts Alive 2018
April 20-June 3, 2018 | Lower Gallery
Opening Reception | April 19, 7-9pm
In collaboration with School District 41

Arts Alive 2018 is an annual showcase of student works held in collaboration with the Burnaby School District. Highlighting works by secondary students, this year’s 36th edition presents a selection of artworks from eight schools across the city.

Through an initial process involving teachers, two students’ work is selected from each participating class for the virtual gallery that will also be on display in the gallery and online. From this collection of works, the Burnaby Art Gallery jury then chooses between five to ten artworks to represent the talents of each school in the gallery’s main exhibition space. The result is a collection of work representing the depth, breadth and extraordinary talents of students across the district.
