March News from the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture


“Want to learn photography and video to create your own digital story from your phone? Want to share your passion with the world?”

RCAC is excited to announce a two-part youth multimedia workshop entitled “Creative Stories Digitally”, instructed by Red Mountain Resort photographer, Ryan Flett.Over nine years as a professional outdoor adventure photographer, Ryan Flett has explored the backcountry of BC, Yukon, the Pacific coast and Nepal, and worked for brands such as Baldface Lodge, Destination BC and Red Mountain Resort.

This workshop is an excellent introduction to social media marketing, and is a great resume builder for teens. It’s also going to be a lot of fun! If you know a young person who hopes to have a career in the creative and/or digital arts, let them know about this workshop.

With this workshop, youth will have an opportunity to learn valuable skills in photography, videography, design, storytelling and social media marketing. Create your own story!

The workshop takes place at the Miners Hall Attic, and is open to youth ages 12-18 (email if you want to participate but are outside the age range). Tuition is $50 and covers two full days of instruction, 9am-4pm, Saturday March 3rd and Saturday 10th. To participate, students require: a smartphone, Instagram account, notepad and pen. You can also bring your camera, tablet or laptop.

This workshop is limited to 12 participants, so sign up today!
