Expose Yourself – Events!


We have events! Events are happening!

Here are two of the events 🙂


LGBTQ Town Hall! Exploring Issues Facing LGBTQ in Rural Areas (like Powell River — this will have a specific focus on what’s working and what’s needed here!)


We are proud to welcome Robert Beringer, BGS, MA., experienced facilitator and researcher, to Powell River to host this LGBTQ community town hall event focusing specifically on issues facing LGBTQ communities living in rural or isolated areas such as ours. All ages are welcome to attend and the town hall format will provide a forum to share thoughts about community services (social and otherwise), health, wellness, aging, intergenerational connectedness, and diversity.

->>> Members of neighbouring communities are also encouraged to join <<<-

This is a free community event made possible by The Old Courthouse Inn and the Powell River Pride Society. We will be collecting donations from those who are able. No pressure. 100% of the donations will be going to Robert’s travel and accommodations.

During the evening Robert will present findings from his research into issues facing LGBTQ communities in rural areas in Canada and engage discussion regarding the specific needs and concerns within Powell River.

The Play is the Thing!

‘The Play is the Thing: Using Playfulness in Theater Performance’ is a two hour master class in the art of having fun on stage. From a background in clown training, Kat Single-Dain will give you tools for presence and improvisation that can be applied to any live performance art.

We’re thrilled to welcom Kat Single-Dain, Artistic Director at the Dusty Flowerpot Cabarte Society and member of the The Myrtle Family Band to Powell Riviera to indulge us in a good ol’ fashioned theatre workshop.

Coming event announcements? We will soon be releasing the details of our new VIP dinner, Provocative Refections! Also coming soon, the main exhibition in all it’s glory!



It’s been a very exciting and busy time for me this summer, and still is now, into the fall. The garden we spent much of last spring working on has produced a wide variety of food to fill our freezer and cupboards with. We had the joy of welcoming a new family member into our home, Betty Boo, our now 4 month-old puppy. She has brought us tons of joy. I also had my first solo art show, Blackout!!!, and I’ve been very encouraged by the outcome. On oct 5th, I had the pleasure of being part of a large, group art show in New York City, right in Times Square. The Abbie Hoffman Society, my band, just finished recording our first album, which will be released later this fall, and we have a mini tour coming up, which I shall announce soon. Not bad for 6 months, if I do say so myself! But, it’s taken lots of hard work and dedication to get here.

I would also like to announce my new store on etsy, http://www.etsy.com/shop/laurabalducciart. It’s still in the very, very beginning stages, but I’m having a lot of fun with it. I welcome everyone to please visit and revisit it, spread the word, and please honestly comment! It’s all appreciated, I’m on a learning curve. So here’s a big thank you to everyone who has supported me in my efforts to share how there is art in everything.
