The Writing Room

A Legacy: Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge & COVID-19
First printed in Silver Sage Magazine, March 20, 2020

Many despair about those things that we are being asked to refrain from doing, and many of us are in self-imposed quarantine. But perhaps the current upset of all that is normal, can also provide an opportunity for reflection.

Pickering Community Banner Program

The Pickering Community Banner Program celebrates the culture, heritage and beauty of our City. The City of Pickering invites Canadian artists of all ages, or artist teams, to create, design and submit artwork to be used for the Community Banner Program. Using a single or a variety of mediums, artists are asked to highlight the cultural, heritage, and diversity of the City of Pickering through the theme: Live, Work, Play, Inspire.

Up to 35 Community banners will be selected through an open call for art. Call closes annually on the 2nd Thursday of September. Selected banners will be installed throughout City Centre (Esplanade North, Esplanade South, Valley Farm Road, Glenanna Road,
Kingston Road) in early December.
