Soccer Co-ordinator Needed for 2021 Season

88261078_3493038444102777_6550152767980175360_n

Our soccer program has developed to what it is as a result of the incredible efforts of our soccer co-ordinator. Sadly, she is stepping away after this season but is willing to mentor someone and pass on all of her knowledge, tips, and tricks.

We are looking for someone to take over the position going forward.

At this point we are looking at three options:
1. A new volunteer co-ordinator steps forward
2. Hiring a new co-ordinator, resulting in increased fees & expenses
3. Not running soccer in the 2021 season

If you’re interested in this volunteer position or are looking for more information, please contact: soccer@banfftrailcommunity.ca

Featured Community Artist – Terese Mullin

Continuing our local artist series, our next artist is Terese Mullin.

Artist Statement & Bio:
My practice involves the exploration of time and health, specifically examining my ephemeral experience with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), which involves chronic pain, restricted activity and mobility. Choosing a positive approach, I celebrate and indulge in movement and a defiance of RA. Through my materials, I reference the invisible nature of the disease as well as the transience and uncertainty which are a part of the experience. The materials allow me to make something permanent out of the ephemeral.

I am a Contemporary artist living in Calgary, Alberta with my partner and my two most precious creations. I graduated with distinction from The Alberta College of Art and Design, now known as Alberta University of the Arts, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have exhibited internationally and locally and enjoy teaching fine arts to children.

Featured Community Artist – Charlie Healey

Continuing our local artist series, our next artist is Charlie Healey

Healey is currently studying at The Alberta University of the Arts. You can find her work at charliehealey.com and on Instagram: @charliehealeyphoto.

“Self” and “Brother” as part of a series titled “Family Portraits”

This series showcases the trauma caused by a mother plagued with addiction and how she was eventually overcome by her illness, thus becoming distant from her children. All the photos were once cherished memories but later developed into reminders of the horror that is my mother. In the pictures, my mother looks as if she is looking to bond with her children, but the wire is keeping her from achieving this. The photos now remind me of the trauma and hardships created by my mother which have had an everlasting effect on my siblings and I.
