From our Contest Sponsor — Askew’s
As I look back at the past two years, it is hard not to feel both somewhat breathless and grateful for all that we’ve learned and achieved. The collective challenges presented by a pandemic that nobody expected to last this long have changed how many of us interact. Many of us persevered through the individual and societal challenges we faced; because of our resilience, we have learned to adapt and grow through the trials we faced. Many of us learned that we are at our best when our choices are guided by compassion and consideration for others, especially in our community.
Askew’s has been a mainstay in the local community for ninety-three years; Askew’s sees that its success is tied to the health of the communities we operate in. We live within a vibrant community of artists, musicians, actors, dancers, teachers, audiences, writers, and storytellers alike — sharing stories and connecting through the arts. Askew’s continues to remain committed to supporting the rich arts and creative community in Salmon Arm.
We believe that a love of reading and learning should be nurtured throughout our lives. This festival helps to create an environment of creativity and encourages the love of reading, learning, and self-expression. Askew’s is proud to be a program sponsor of the Word on the Lake Writers’ Festival, supporting its efforts in showcasing both established and emerging writers.
