Welcome to a special edition of The Richmond Review. In this, our second annual arts and culture preview edition, we had occasion to focus on Richmond’s growing arts community. Providing guidance for our coverage was Vicki McLeod, the guest editor for this edition. Beyond providing input on the vision for this issue, McLeod gave us reason to challenge our perception of who artists really were. So we threw

out the label to understand creativity is in all of us—and Culture Days is the perfect place to find it. See the Opinion page to read more. McLeod also challenged us—to create relevant linkages between richmondreview.com and the print edition. We tried, and encourage you to visit our website and explore—and hopefully inspire a little creativity at the same time. —Matthew Hoekstra, acting editor

Dream of performing mired in reality Artist making ends meet as landscaper and barista by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Alfonso Banzon doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. In order to reach his dream, he’ll have to continue to do just that. The 20-year-old grad from A.R. MacNeill wants to sing, dance and act for a living, but that’s something that remains out of his reach. So he can be found toiling away in people’s yards doing landscaping work, or serving up cappuccinos at a local Starbucks when he’s not at the Richmond Academy of Dance sharpening up his skills and doing what he loves. Banzon first emigrated to Canada from the Philippines six years ago with his parents and two younger sisters, leaving behind extended family and friends. Coming to Canada opened up a world of opportunities, giving Banzon freedoms he never had in Manila. But it did not come without sacrifice, as Banzon and his family had to leave behind loved ones. When he performs, he taps into the

Love for arts runs deep John Van Putten photo Alfonso Banzon balances his dream of a singing/dancing/acting career with the everyday necessity of paying bills.

emotions like those he experienced during the transition to life in Canada. Banzon never considered a career in the performing arts until 2007. Up to that point, he’d been studying the sciences, and was more closely following in his mother’s footsteps, as she was a dentist in the Philippines. But then he enrolled in a musical the-

atre program at the Richmond Academy of Dance, and something clicked. After that, he became enamoured with shows like So You Think You Can Dance? and Dancing with the Stars. “Everything about it is fun,” said Banzon, who enjoys expressing himself, helping make people happy, and taking them on journeys they might not have

experienced otherwise. Banzon recently hired an agent to help him find work and knows the road ahead is uncertain. With his triple threat of skills, he’s hoping to do all three in a stage production, but is more than willing to do television and film work in the meantime. “I just want to be performing.”

Artist’s struggles key to creative process Works draw on sum of an artist’s life experiences, UBC prof says by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter From Xiong Gu’s perspective, the notion of a starving artist isn’t so much one of economic victimization as it is a necessary part of the artistic process. An artist who struggles, and endures hardships, encounters a range of emotions and experiences that fire the creative cauldrons, argues Gu, an associate professor of art history at University of British Columbia. “If an artist has a comfortable life, I don’t think he will make good art,” Gu says. But that’s not to say that a community shouldn’t play the vital role of supporting artists as they are cutting their teeth. “In Canada, we have a great system to support artists to

“If an artist has a comfortable life, I don’t think he will make good art.” - Xiong Gu do contemporary arts,” Gu said, whether it’s music, visual arts or theatre. While the provincial and federal governments and lo-

cal organizations do support the arts by providing financial backing, it’s at the toughest economic times that cutbacks tend to have the arts in the crosshairs. But Gu argues that arts funding provides great value for the dollar. Supporting the arts through financing exhibits and providing exhibition space, creates jobs such as curators, directors and their secretaries. And when artists find work, that helps them to remain selfemployed, allowing them to sell their works in the future, on which they pay taxes. By cutting funding, that makes it difficult for artists to become self sufficient, he says. But beyond the dollars and cents, Gu argues that society benefits from the creation of contemporary artwork that is meaningful and relates to

current global trends, events, experiences and issues. A prime example of artwork that creates discussion was the controversial Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head sculpture near the Richmond Olympic Oval and crafted by brothers Gao Qiang and Gao Zhen. The Vancouver Biennale art piece was the target of a flood of letters to the editor. Stimulating discussion was no doubt one of the goals of the Gao brothers, and in that respect it was mission accomplished. “That kind of controversy makes people think and makes society aware of what’s going on in the past,” he says. Gu says artists in China have been learning for the past several years that a career in the arts is indeed viable.

In what he explains is a boom in the Chinese art market, artists whose works were selling for $10,000 just five or six years ago, are now fetching $500,000 or $1 million for their pieces. These artists are now becoming so wealthy that they can afford what was previously unthinkable amounts of studio space to display their works, stretching some 4,000 or 5,000 square feet in China’s major cities. Meanwhile, in North America, an art market that peaked in the 1960s and 1970s, remains in a down phase. But Gu says the market is cyclical, and it figures to pick up again in the future. In the meantime, artists will continue to carve out a niche for themselves, and try forge a name for themselves, while juggling odd jobs that pay the bills.

At richmondreview.com: How influential is Chinese art and culture here?

by Don Fennell Staff Reporter For the guest editor of The Richmond Review’s second annual Arts and Culture Edition, interest in the arts runs the gamut. And deeply. You can thank her parents for that. “I was introduced very early to reading and music,” says Vickie McLeod. “There was always lots of music going on in our house and we listened to anything that came over the radio, it could be classic or jazz. And I played the piano, and did a bit of acting in university. I really enjoyed all those things—then I had to make a real living.” Hoping for a career in an arts-related field, McLeod, upon graduating from high school, enrolled in music history classes at the University of Carleton in Ottawa. While there she began writing about music for the campus radio station and later worked at CISL in Richmond where she wrote radio commercials. In 1984 she became Gateway Theatre’s first publicist and in 1994 became the marketing coordinator at the University of B.C. bookstore from which she recently retired. Now 59, McLeod’s creative nature is still apparent. She’s a keen member of the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond and enjoys working with fabric to create items such as quilts for community donation. “I think it’s because working with my hands is so different than working at a desk or directing people,” she says.

‘Revert to that childhood impulse’

City Board 2012 City Grant Program Applications accepted until October 14 The City of Richmond supports the enhancement of a positive quality of life for all its residents, and City Council recognizes that one means of helping achieve this goal is through an annual Grant Program to support the work of community service groups. In July 2011, Richmond City Council adopted a City Grant Policy establishing three separate Grant Programs: 1. Health, Social and Safety 2. Parks, Recreation and Community Events 3. Arts and Culture Information and application forms for the Health, Social and Safety, and Parks, Recreation and Community Events Grant Programs are available on the City’s website at www.richmond.ca (City Services > Social Planning > City Grant Program) or from the City Hall Information Counter, 6911 No. 3 Road, 604-276-4000. Applications may be submitted for only one program per year and will be considered from non-profit organizations meeting the program criteria. Completed applications must be received at the Richmond City Hall Information Counter by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 14. The vision, criteria and application forms are being developed for the 2012 Arts and Culture Grant Program and will be posted on the City website on October 21. If you have any questions regarding the program or your application, please call 604-276-4220.

“The minute I get fabric in my hands it’s something else altogether. And I’ve been really lucky to join a cultural group that has a long history and is very sociable. There are so many benefits.” Why is art important to a community? “Art always provides a new way of looking at things. It can be really innovative and beneficial to whatever you’re doing. Whether it’s painting, fabric art or whatever, that way of thinking or mindset can continue over into other parts of your life to make them more interesting and innovative as well. “I like to inspire people to think that way. Kids are so creative because they’re born that way. They say why can’t the grass be blue when they’re colouring. But as we get older we learn certain structures and through our education we learn forms that are acceptable. “Once in a while you have to revert to that childhood impulse. And creative impulse goes beyond what just hangs on the wall.” What aspect of your participation in the arts has been most rewarding? “The ability to put your ideas out there and have them accepted and talked about. The feeling you really contributed to an idea or a project can be quite gratifying and you don’t even have to get acknowledged that much. It’s more like a quiet confidence that, yeah, my opinions really count for something and my view of the world is something others (share) too.”

Gallery finds success in showcasing contemporary art Staff Reporter Beauty, it’s been said, is in the eye of the beholder. And in no context is that more true than the arts. Operated by an independent, non-profit society, the Richmond Art Gallery plays a dynamic role in the growth of visual art through exhibitions and education. And director Lynn Beavis says galleries, as a whole, are moving away from offering an explanation of a piece’s meaning “because everybody sees something different and no matter what they see, if it touches them then it’s a valuable experience.” Beavis says the Richmond Art Gallery is also trying to integrate its patrons into the exhibitions. Next year, it plans to invite the public to share family portraits that will become the focal point of a show. “The ideas imbedded in the art are made more meaningful if you can actually participate in the creation of the work,” she says. Presenting pieces that are thought-provoking is also important, says Beavis, who believes it is good to challenge oneself. She hopes that if a visitor to the gallery doesn’t like something they’ll ask themselves why not. “That’s where the growth comes in,” she says. “Personally I’d rather be pushed. Not all the time maybe, but I like to be challenged to think about new things. There’s a certain amount (of the public) that is always going to be interested in pretty much anything we present, probably 10 per cent of the population that is passionately committed to art. But we want to grow that to 15 or 20 per cent and that’s why we try to program to different segments, so that we’re always engaging different people all the time.” The Richmond Art Gallery is part of a contemporary art network that extends throughout not only the province but nation wide. Its mandate is to enhance both an understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art which Beavis defines as “about the life we’re living right now.” Looking at, thinking about and making art is at the core of the gallery’s school art program. Exhi-

bitions provide students and teachers with a starting point for exploring and discovering art. “When you bring children in, and if they have a good experience, they bring their families back and become lifelong fans of art,” says Beavis. As the curator of the Richmond Art Gallery, Nan Capogna ultimately chooses what will be shown at the gallery. But she relies heavily on the input of other

For the past several years these groups have spent most of their resources on just surviving, not thriving. They’re experts at making a buck stretch—but in the face of double-digit rent increases and unexpected insurance costs to name a few, members fees have been used to just keep things going, rather than growing. With less benefits and increased fees, there’s no wonder that membership has declined. But wait—in the next year, Richmond could undergo a cultural renaissance. Over the spring and summer, city staff, together with councillors Evelina Halsey-Brandt and Linda Barnes, conducted a review of the city grants program. The resulting report, adopted by council in July, will be of tremendous benefit to the local arts scene. (See full report at http://tinyurl.com/GrantsReview.) First, arts, culture and heritage grants are now a separate section with its own allocation of funds, instead of competing against social service agencies

and sports organizations. Secondly, the arts, culture and heritage funding will be boost-

ed from $18,000 to $100,000 (from nine cents to 50 cents per person).

This increase starts to bring Richmond in line with what similar-sized communities spend on the arts per capita ($1.20 to $2.56). Thirdly, these funds can be used for a wide range of activities—unlike the pitiful provincial grants that have, so far, no-go areas such as arts programs for adults. Richmond’s 2012 arts and culture grants program vision, criteria and application forms will be posted on the city’s website on Oct. 21. The city has done its part— now it’s up to our arts, culture and heritage groups to follow through with innovative, enriching applications. It’s time to make yourselves “grant-worthy” with clear financial records and documentation. Then it’s down to brainstorming. Need high-tech help going online to reach younger potential members? What about that annual exhibition, special performance or CD? How about contracting that teacher that your members have been asking for? Which of your existing projects need extra help in making it cross cultural boundaries? The cavalry is coming. Time to pick up the pieces and do what you are uniquely known for— remind us of our soul and make that Richmond renaissance a reality! —Vickie McLeod

U

nlike Brittani Faulkes, last year’s guest editor for the Arts and Culture Edition, I don’t have years of experience as a working artist. But I do have a life long love of consuming the arts and dabbling in music and the visual arts as a hobby.

I’ve found that local arts, culture and heritage groups provide several unseen benefits aside from what we see in a gallery or a performance

hall. Let’s look for these hidden benefits. As I grew up, I learned many rules and routines of doing things that allowed me to successfully interact with others. The fork should be on the left. Columbus discovered America in 1492. Financial reports have both assets and liabilities. But there comes a time when we hit the “routine ceiling.” The past won’t help us. We are called upon to come up with a fresh new concept at work, decide what career or relationship path to take or how to tweak a new recipe. One way to break through conventional ideas is to try a little creative thought. Turn things around. Look up instead of down. Reverse the usual process. And one way to re-discover creative thinking is to participate in the activities of arts, cultural and heritage groups. That’s one of those unseen benefits—helping us to think and feel in new ways not

just about the art we are working on—but a range of decisions that we make in everyday life. More of these benefits emerged when I got involved in one of these local arts groups, the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond. Guild members have informal social connections beyond their regular meetings and workshops. They share books, go to live theatre together and walk every Sunday at Garry Point. I also discovered that making something of comfort for someone in need is very gratifying. Over this summer the guild has made over 90 items for local charities such as Lion’s Manor, the public health nurse, Richmond Hospital Birthing Centre, Richmond Hospice House, as well as for Japan earthquake relief. My hunch is that more of you find yourself in my position—leaving a busy full-time career and casting around for something meaningful to do. Or

maybe you just graduated and are wondering if you can make a living in the arts. Perhaps you’ve seen the pure joy in your child’s eyes when they dance or draw and wonder, “How did I get away from all that?” Well, this week is a great time to get back to it. Culture Days, the national focus on arts participation will be held this weekend—Sept. 30, Oct. 1 and 2. Richmond will be awash with over 30 interactive creative activities to engage people of all ages. Like me, you may not see yourself as an “artist,” but don’t let a label stop you from trying out creativity more often— and discovering for yourself all those exceptional hidden benefits! Vickie McLeod is the webmaster and archivist for the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond and The Richmond Review’s guest editor for this edition. She can be reached at vemcleod@shaw.ca.

Pay parking in Steveston Too many politicians a slippery slope Editor: Editor: Re: “Steveston groups mull more pay parking,” Sept. 23. It looks like more money grabbers are looking to jump on the pay parking bandwagon in Steveston even though their parking lots are sitting empty. All the usual suspects are involved as it looks like a nice little earner for them all. We all know where this is going. Wakey! Wakey! What’s next? Meter parking on the streets of Steveston?

Bring on the RVs Editor: Re: “Offer camping at McDonald Beach,” Letters, Sept. 23. I give full marks to Lisa Nowak for her letter about camping at McDonald Beach. Not only should there be camping there. How about clipping off some of the dog park areas at the south end of No. 3 Road and allocating it as an RV camping area? Also why not allow fully-contained RVs to be allowed to stay overnight at Garry Point in the parking lot and install a pay-per-use dump station there? Richmond used to have a municipal RV dump station on Lynas Lane. Why not re-address this concept? Brian Barnes Steveston

When sport blurs the line with art Sport and art blend with rhythmic gymnastics, figure skating and martial arts by Don Fennell Staff Reporter It is the art of sport. Or should that be the sport of art? When the line between physical activity and expression blurs. Traditionally categorized more as sport than art, activities such as figure skating, rhythmic gymnastics and martial arts nonetheless feature prominently components that focus as much or more on expression, music, dance and self-reflection than on actual competition. “I definitely enjoyed the physicality of rhythmic gymnastics, but more than anything the draw was the music and dance. That’s what made it all worthwhile,” says Linda Price, formerly a competitive rhythmic gymnast and now coach of Richmond’s Ultra Rhythmics. “You don’t think you’re breaking a sweat because of the music and as a result you get absorbed in it, which is where I think the art is formed. The music is what gets in your soul and makes you want to move.” From an audience perspective, the gymnasts’ use of multi-coloured ribbons are always a popular spectacle. Attached to the end of a stick, the one-piece ribbon requires a high degree of co-ordination to form spirals and circles and the resulting smooth flowing movements. “It is definitely the most attractive (of the exercises) but from a gymnast’s point of view also the hardest,” says Price. “To keep it beautiful the ribbon has to remain in motion the whole time, meaning there is a lot of muscle and co-ordination needed to not get wrapped up in the ribbon.” Combining elements of ballet, gymnastics and dance, rhythmic gymnasts also manipulate such apparatus as ropes, clubs, hoops and balls in their performance routines. But Price maintains it is the music from which the inspiration is derived. “It has to move you, first of all, then what apparatus

is compatible with the mu- coaching himself, Keegan sic,” she says. “It’s difficult was an accomplished to sell the music if you’re competitive skater and not passionate about it the 2002 Canadian junior and don’t feel it.

Toward the end of his Before getting into own skating career, while

in his early 20s, Keegan said drawing on his own artistic interests was “the most enjoyable aspect of development.” “Being part of the music research, and envisioning the choreographic ideas was exciting,” he says. Keegan says the sport has changed greatly over the last decade with the introduction of the international judging system. But at the end of the day the most memorable skaters are the ones who are able to show a part of their true personality and passion, while adapting to the rules and regulations of the sport. “These rare cases are examples of when the sport and the art have been blended perfectly,” he says.

John Van Putten photo Ultra Rhythmics coach Linda Price says music and dance drew her to the sport.

In its most obvious form, judo is a self-defence martial art. But through the study of judo, judoka learn respect (for self and others), discipline, responsibility and control. But it is in kata (forms) that the artistry perhaps manifests itself most. Kata are pre-arranged patterns of techniques, the purpose to illustrate the basic principles of the martial art

and to preserve ancient techniques no longer used in contemporary judo. “Kata is a beautiful orchestrated dance. It’s so specific in regards to movement and how you have to execute. And it’s judged on artistic basis because of its components,” says Judo BC executive director Diane St. Denis. “Judo has a lot of components you wouldn’t associ-

ate with sport exactly. If I was going into a class and wanted to talk about art, this an art form. It requires specific movements, balance and counter-balance and self-awareness. “It’s not about kicking and punching. At a younger age you might be stronger and be able to overwhelm an opponent, but eventually technique comes into it.”

rosh hashanah

Holiday marks the start of the Jewish New Year

S

unset tonight (Wednesday) marks the start of Rosh Hashanah, a Jewish holiday commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year. But unlike the New Year celebrations in January, Rosh Hashanah is one of the holiest of the Hebrew calendar, when time is spent in the synagogue and special texts called the machzor are read. There are several customs for this holiday. The first is the blowing of the shofar, or the ram’s horn, in synagogue. Many believe this practise

is a call to repentance. Many people also practise a “casting off ” of sins. Bread crumbs are carried in the pockets, and Jews flock to the water to throw the crumbs into the tides. A tradition of eating apples or bread dipped in honey is also customary. This symbolizes a desire for a sweet new year. In Richmond, Rosh Hashanah services will be held Chabad of Richmond, 200-4775 Blundell Rd., from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1. Visit chabadrichmond.com or call 604-277-6427 for more information.

Joyous New Year

Rosh Hashanah observances •Eating a piece of apple dipped in honey to symbolize a desire for a sweet year, as well as many other special foods. •Blessing one another with the words Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim, “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.” •Leaving shortcomings behind and starting the new year with a clean slate by going to a lake or river and reciting the Tashlich prayers, where sins are symbolically cast into the water. •Women and girls light candles each evening and recite appropriate blessings. —chabad.org

Candidates quizzed on the arts The next municipal and school election is Nov. 19. The Richmond Review asked known candidates to respond to two questions. If elected, how will you advocate for the arts in Richmond? How would you seek to improve the contribution of arts and culture in the community?

Council Linda Barnes: “As a longtime advocate and supporter, I will continue to push for inclusion of arts and culture in big picture plans such as the official community plan. I supported and attempted to increase the new arts and culture grant the city has instituted. The arts has long been used as a bridge between cultures, ages and beneficial for mental health patients. As such I will always push to ensure they are included in city programming as

well as private events or buildings. Arts are an economic driver that provide jobs as well as creative outlets for citizens and as such deserve all of our support.” Cynthia Chen: “Supporting our local artists and acknowledging the value and significance of the arts is vital to celebrating the wonderful diversity of our community. We should consider the construction of a new standalone civic arts and culture facility that will be a major focal point for showcasing the creativity and talent of artists, young and old, and from across all genres. We only need to look at neighbouring municipalities to see the enormous social and financial impact and dynamic community engagement such a facility provides to the community. Our current facilities are inadequate to serve the needs of our growing population.” See Page 13

Derek Dang: “I would like to see us expand the Minoru precinct which would include the arts and cultural centre, the library, seniors centre and aquatic centre. There is a vibrant interest in the arts in Richmond. However, to me, art is best demonstrated at the local grassroots level and embraces the fibre of the Richmond populace. My own experiences have shown me the great interest of Richmondites when I see my daughter’s classes at ballet. My kids have taken pottery and drawing classes as well as cartooning. The continuance of city support is important because we have a reputation for providing quality arts and performance courses and the interest and participation level is always high.”

developer contributions that fund the public art program keep pace with inflation. I am proud to have chaired the subcommittee of council that recommended that the amount of monies that are distributed to arts organizations through the grants budget be increased from $19,000 to $100,000 and will support this recommendation through the 2012 budget process. I will work with the various art

organizations to ensure that the money is distributed where it will have the most benefit.” Ken Johnston: “Arts and cultural programs are vital to our city. If re-elected I will continue to support direct funding to the Gateway Theatre, library, cultural centre and community arts programs. I supported developing the recently established separate city grant category for

arts and culture that will enhance the funding available to the arts community. I will continue to support public art that primarily recognizes and embraces the work of local artists and is relevant to Richmond residents. To further promote the contribution of arts and culture we should stage more special cultural events such as the recent Britannia shipyard festival.” See Page 23

Our Weight Release™ Boot Camp Programs are highly successful and perfect for beginners and experience exercisers because we teach our program in levels; no one is ever left standing around in our programs. .

Katherine’s Experience at Inner Fit Studios: “I, like many women, have been “dieting” for years. My goal was always to drop major pounds fast. It was daunting but I always had the best of intentions. Being very overweight made me extremely self conscious. I was intimidated by the gym, but knew I had to move my body. One class with Rachel and I felt challenged but at ease with

her warm & compassionate spirit. The bootcamps are fun, I probably laugh as much as I sweat! I’ve made incredible friendships who held me accountable & Rachel always pushed me farther than I could ever have imagined. She believed in my success before I did. I have nothing but love and gratitude for Inner Fit Studios. My body, mind and spirit thank you!”

Time: 12 to 1pm Resistance training is important for everyone and is the most effective way to lose body fat and remain lean. It conditions the body for strength, endurance, flexibility, joint resiliency, and motor skill coordination. Many feel it is solely for bodybuilders; however, every body needs weight training. Many women have the fear of “bulking up” when, in reality, the training of your muscles actually helps you decrease your size due to the loss of body fat, which takes up approximately three times more space than muscle tissue. It is not uncommon for women to triple their strength and to simultaneously go down two to three pant sizes.This is more permanent weight loss since muscle tissue is what drives the metabolism.

ave you considered providing products or services to the Government of Canada? Chances are you if you have thought about it, you have dismissed it thinking that your business is not relevant to the government, however most of the time this assumption is wrong. Types of Goods and Services Due to the wide and varied nature of work which government employees perform – from RCMP officers to armed forces, from street cleaners to administration staff – the Government of Canada purchases a wide variety of goods and services every year. With the help of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), the government’s common service provider and main purchaser, the federal government spends approximately $15 billion a year on goods and services ranging from airplanes to paperclips, as well as a wide variety of services.

H

Who Wins Government Contracts? Another common misconception is that only big businesses win government contracts, however in 2009/10 over $776 million new contracts were awarded by PWGSC to BC and Yukon small and medium enterprises (SME’s) alone. How to Start Working with the Government Now that you know that you can work with the government, where should you start? Buyandsell.gc.ca is the government’s new user friendly procurement website which pulls together opportunities from Contracts Canada and PWGSC. The site’s content is based on a five-step process with detailed guides and video to help you understand the steps for doing business with the government.

Five tips for being authentic in social media hen jumping into the world of social media, most business owners have one intention in mind: sell, sell, sellâ&#x20AC;Śand for a good reason! The

W

world of social media is a great place to reach out, to increase your market, and to develop relationships with new and existing customers. However, this is not the place for

direct sales; to succeed in social media you must be authentic and provide value to the online community. Sometimes though, this is easier said than done; so here are five tips to help you succeed in social media. 1. Show off

your expertise There are two main reasons why people will pay attention to you on social media: â&#x20AC;˘ They care about your company/service/ product/industry; or â&#x20AC;˘ They want to know more about

Social media is about knowledge sharing and by doing just that you will help build trust in your company while showing others the value in your business. You will also be creating brand awareness. 2. Be the face of the business Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started a business and built it up to what it is today; every aspect of the business is a reflection of you and your online profile is no different.

the business, so having someone else tweeting and responding to Facebook posts on your behalf will only hurt your reputation. Your customers can tell if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not being authentic and representing your own beliefs and ideas. 3. Give and take Most experts will suggest spending time observing social media before jumping right in; this will help you get to know the lay of the land so you understand whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effective and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not before you start posting updates. But once you do start participating, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to not just fire messages out there, but to manage a fine balance of give and take. You can do so by continually searching

for conversations about your company and commenting on what they have to say, especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s negative. Always respond as quickly as possible to questions or comments that are directed at you and your business. Be sure to search out loyal customers online and thank them for their patronage. And you can also reward your followers by offering discounts, or first access to a new product or service to those who follow your social media accounts. 4. Build a community There is nothing that brings people together like a common goal, interest or cause, and social media is a fantastic way build that community. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a photographer, start a LinkedIn Group to talk about specialized photography techniques and a Flickr account to share photos. If you own an event planning company, start a blog and post video clips while encouraging others to also share their event planning tips and videos of their successful parties. By using social media to bring together a group of people with common area of interest, you and your business will receive recognition while establishing yourself as a trusted source for information. 5. Once you start, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Before jumping online and setting up a Twitter account or a Facebook page for your business, think very strategically about what you want to do with social media, if managing it is realistic, and whether the benefits will outweigh the time it will take up. Getting on social media is like a marriage, and you need to think about whether this is something you want to get into a relationship with long term. Customers can lose trust in your business if, down the road, you decide to close you account or if you get busy and just stop making updates , so make sure you are ready to commit.

centre, library and aquatics centre. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support in the arts is paramount as we are growing as a destination city with a rich history and environment as the arts contribute to a sense of place and identity for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents.â&#x20AC;?

Bill McNulty: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I continually support, advocate and lobby for the arts in Richmond as a life member of the Richmond Arts Coalition. The arts are the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;soulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of our community. We need to work to provide a home for the arts. We need a displaying and performing arts centre to make Richmond a destination centre for the arts for performance, tourism and economic development as well as aesthetically appreciating them and making the city more livable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a city we must support the wealth of talent that we have in local artists by contributing space, finances and opportunity to develop programs. The current Minoru arts and culture centre needs replacement and expansion along with the seniors

Linda McPhail: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arts, culture and arts education are important elements in a vital city. A vibrant arts sector complements and contributes to the economic, social and cultural fabric of a community and contributes to the quality of life for every Richmond resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe the city should fund arts and cultural activities that have been determined and prioritized through public consultation in the annual budget review, the arts and cultural plan and annual updates.

I will work with council and city staff to identify other resources and private sector funding partnerships for arts initiatives that benefit Richmond.â&#x20AC;? De Whalen: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Richmond Arts and Culture Awards is a wonderful opportunity to honour local talent. As a councillor, I would encourage our entire diverse population to be a part of both the nominee search and the celebration of winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regarding the city hosting Vancouver Biennale (Miss Mao, Wind Waves, etc.) I would ensure residents knew the Biennale bore the cost, not city hall. I believe art should spark lively conversation and promote a greater understanding of ourselves. The sculptures certainly did that. As councillor, I would embrace the

conversation not shy away from it.â&#x20AC;? Michael Wolfe: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would volunteer to attend all of the arts and culture related committee meetings to hear about the local issues that require support from a member on city council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will gladly share my love of local art by supporting the development of local arts festivals, parades, concerts, and the addition of arts centres into all of our regional community centres. I will be that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;voice of the voicelessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on city council, so members of cultural groups that feel under-represented can rely on me to speak on their behalf.â&#x20AC;?

> 25th Anniversary of Gulf of Georgia Cannery

‘Icon’ feted at Friday party

Joe Bauer, the first member of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, with Tony Atcher and Mimi Lam.

F

ond memories swirled around the cannery Friday evening at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society’s 25th anniversary celebration. “ Tw e n t y five is a big milestone,” said Rob Hart, marketing coordinator at the cannery. “A lot of people don’t realize it is a nonAround Town profit that runs it,” he said. Amanda Oye Around 200 people including past and present volunteers and employees, politicians and Parks Canada representatives came out to help celebrate. There was live music, a slide show of photos from the past 25 years, speeches, food and wine, which was donated by Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery. During the speeches Ralph and Edith Turner, who started the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, were presented with an award from Parks Canada as two of the 100 volunteers it is recognizing for its 100th anniversary. The night also saw the release of the cannery’s new book, The Monster Cannery, which details its 25-year history. It’s now on sale in the gift shop. The cannery plans to “continue to get the word out…and keep the community engaged,” Hart said. “The fishing history of Steveston is a big part of the area… The cannery has become an icon.” Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Review. Reach her at amanda. oye@telus.net. Around Town appears every Wednesday.
