Today in the City : Work of Art Conference + Surrey's Party 4 the Planet!

  Lots going on in the area today.
Heading to the Work of Art Conference at the Newton Cultural Centre to hear some fabulous creative people, Chris Tyrell for example, speak about the business of art. It's been a few years since this event was held and I am so delighted that it's been brought back. Learn more here

 Looks like a  perfect day for the city's Party for the Planet held all day Sat. at the City Hall plaza.  So much to see and do plus some amazing live music from some of my favourite west coast performers, Jeremey Fisher, Dear Rouge, Jordan Klassen, Said the Whale and More. Check it out.
  Smile Surrey! We're all in this together.

 ReMinder of next Saturday's Friends of the Grove happening  in Newton. Here's what The Better Block's Jason Roberts had to say about this little part of our city.

Looking forward to hearing Jason Roberts speak tomorrow at Surrey Steps Up!  I've been a big BIG fan of his work after watching his TedTalk  from a few years back. He  visited Newton yesterday and has some great ideas for  making our neighbourhood safer and more vibrant!
