    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_CA title: BC Sports Hall of Fame facet_type_id: d636a070-5f41-1032-b97f-b29860d7dc66 html_text: |- Since its inception in 1966, BC Sports Hall of Fame's mission has been to preserve and honour British Columbia's illustrious athletic heritage. The facility packs 100-plus years of sporting history into its exhibits and displays, exalting Olympians, Paralympians, world-class competitors, and championship teams. In the Hall of Champions, artifacts and interactive touchscreens team up to lead visual tours through time; in the Vancouver 2010 gallery, visitors stand atop Olympic medal podiums and sniff Olympic torches for hints of the protein bars that once burned inside them. Chock full of inspiration, visitors of any age can strap on their game faces and storm into the Participation Zone. There, they rise to meet the challenge and trace the monumental journeys of national heroes like Rick Hansen and Terry Fox while testing skills with a hockey shoot out, soccer simulator and immersadome, all while enduring the pressure of competing in front of an imaginary television audience. The Participation Zone also hosts birthday parties, which, along with corporate functions and other special events, can be held at the 20,000-square-foot facility year-round.

The Handmade Revolution facet_type_id: 8bb28be0-5f41-1032-bdbe-adbf7dd64b1c html_text: |- Run by designer Jenna Herbut and her brother Chandler, also a designer, the fairs showcase the work of more than 250 Canadian artisans and designers at events Merge magazine has described as "the craft sale for the next generation." The laid-back emporium—that has received tons of positive press—thrums with the energy of desingers such as Sugar + Candy, Faye Tality Couture, and Prickly Potter Ceramics as they enthusiastically promote their wares. Music serenades ears wandering between booths, and homemade creations from vendors such as My Chocolate Tree sate hunger with snacks that are as sweet and savoury as a love poem written in worcestershire sauce. As an extension of her mission to improve designers' livelihoods, Jenna channels her background in marketing into a parallel venture Make It! University, which helps artisans hone their business models.

  • Photography Cures
    When Alfonso Arnold took time off from touring Canada as a musician, he planned to focus on business and marketing. But when a colleague asked him to snap a quick shot of a local artist, Arnold realized he had found a new artistic passion: photography. Since capturing that spur-of-the-moment image, he's crafted a diverse portfolio that encompasses fine art, commercial work, and a wide variety of subjects. He also teaches at Vancouver's LaSalle College of Design, imparting the photographic technique that's inspired the University of British Columbia and Amnesty International to commission his work. Arnold himself has been featured on CBC and MTV Canada. As the instructor and founder of Photography Cures, he follows a philosophy that hinges on giving constructive critiques and paying close attention to students' skills so he can tailor each workshop and curriculum to individual needs. Not content to merely lecture, Arnold takes students on photo walks so they can get hands-on experience and try out their new skills.
