We invite you to walk through a woven-wooden archway to a quaint and classy space where you can dance, mingle, nibble, and enjoy a drink with your friends and the Still Moon community. Your ears will be filled with the sweet sound of jazz while you enjoy a warm and rustic, eco-arts themed event. As the sun sets over the mountains, our lantern-illuminated environment will come alive as we settle in to watch two short art films created by Still Moon Arts Society. We warmly welcome you to a community-inspired evening in support of our mission to raise environmental awareness through the arts. With the world opening and many updates to share, we are eager to see you.
Your contribution goes towards Still Moon’s General Fund which supports Still Creek salmon restoration, ecological art projects and increasing programming for underserved communities and youth.
Still Moon has contributed to salmon returning to Still Creek after 80 years of absence; youth leadership and programming opportunities such as the Youth Committee; and eco-arts programs for the general community and people with varying abilities.

The site of the event at Falaise Park is on a field with a slope and includes rock bridges that are not very flat. As such the site is accessible to wheelchairs and people with mobility issues, but the slopes and uneven ground should be navigated with care. If you will require some additional support on site, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know.
