2010 Sees A Switch From Garbage Cans To Metal Umbrella Stands

Come and cheer A.J. on! Also, Come to cheer on the other Deaf artists!  Come watch me in action and watch me get dirty, with paint, of course!!!

Twenty-five artists will take part in the four hours of creative madness, turning plain metal umbrella stands, provided by the event sponsor, Granville Island Ferries (www.granvilleislandferries.bc.ca), into works of art.

In previous years the artworks have been created out of metal garbage cans, but sensing that they had perhaps saturated the market for these large decorated cans, and wanting to provide something that would be suitable for more of today’s smaller urban homes, organizers this year have chosen to switch to a smaller metal umbrella stand

Are you pregnant?  Looking for a care provider?

Midwives are free with a BC Care Card and can provide comprehensive care throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth, and postpartum (until your baby is 6 weeks old).

Midwives are primary care providers (like doctors) and can order tests, ultrasounds, and write some prescriptions.  We offer you longer appointment times (45 minutes) and home visits after your baby is born. 

You can decide if you want to have your baby at home or in the hospital! We work with women who live in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster.

Beth Duncan is a Registered Midwife who works at Pomegranate Community Midwives.  She is familiar with the D/deaf community and signs.
