On September 22, 2007 Lynn Thompson dropped by the Sunstone Pottery studio on Gabriola Island to talk to a number of folks involved in creating clay bowls in the spirit of community. The finished bowls will be displayed at Village ArtWorks October 15-19 and bid on by silent auction. Some (like Lynn!) may attend with an interest in bidding on their own bowls. Proceeds from the auction will add to the resources of the local island food bank.
The main man at Sunstone Pottery is long-time artist Graham Sheehan. In this recording you'll hear from him along with a variety (and I do mean eclectic!) of participants that day about how they arrived on Gabriola, as well as details on other community outreach activities. Enjoy!

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
