Looking to play music on a Sunday afternoon?

Renfrew Ravine Labyrinth: There is a labyrinth in Renfrew Ravine Park at 27th Avenue east of Atlin Street. Just steps from the 29th Avenue Skytrain Station, locals and visitors use the labyrinth for meditation, for health, for reflection, and for play.

Call for musicians: On the last Sunday of every month, from 2-4pm, a labyrinth steward from Still Moon Arts Society attends the labyrinth. We are looking for small groups or individuals who would be willing/excited to play music near the community labyrinth. Musicians would play to an audience of labyrinth walkers/weeders and a variety of people passing through on their way to the Skytrain station or who are just out for a stroll.

●    Dates: Any Sunday of July 25th; Aug 29th, Sep 26th, Oct 31st.
●    Session length: a period of time between 2 and 4 pm.
●    Public space – no electric or water hookups.
●    Given enough lead time, the last Sunday musicians publicized in media articles, the labyrinth blog, and community posters.
●    A short video of the musical event posted on the labyrinth blog. ●    Thanks for sharing your music!

South and North Ravine Garden Benches Refinished

Still Moon Arts Society Interns Kevin Chan and Crecien Bencio have recently finished resurfacing the benches at the Ravine Sanctuary Garden (near 29th Ave Skytrain) and at the North Ravine Garden (near Boyd Diversion/22nd Ave).

The benches have been sanded, and most of the graffiti has been removed. Unfortunately there is still significant fire damage on the hand carved bench at the Sanctuary Garden; although it has been greatly improved. There are plans for further restoration projects to take place on that bench in the near future.
