BlueShore has a long history of helping to build stronger communities, anchored by our support of wellness in all its forms. This year, many of our community partners found creative ways to bring arts and culture and athletic events to life in the midst of the pandemic, including Bard on the Beach and the Whistler Half Marathon.  

Setting the Stage

Supporting local arts and culture ensures our communities remain vibrant and dynamic. This summer, we are proud to once again support Bard on the Beach, one of Western Canada’s largest Shakespeare festivals.

While their distinctive red and white stage tents aren’t back just yet, their 2021 virtual season brings patrons a variety of digital events including lectures, films and wine tastings. The new online programming is designed to not only engage the community in Vancouver, but also reach out to new audiences across Canada.

For the 2021 Bard season, BlueShore Financial is thrilled to be the Production Sponsor of Done/Undone, a new play that has been adapted for the screen. Written by playwright Kate Besworth and directed by Vancouver theatre artist Arthi Chandra, Done/Undone asks a complex modern question: how well do Shakespeare’s plays stand the test of time – and should some of them not be staged anymore? The film offers a provocative and entertaining story featuring past Bard mainstage actors Charlie Gallant and Harveen Sandhu. 

The virtual Opening Night of Done/Undone takes place August 12, after which time guests can enjoy the film on demand until September 30. Tickets are on sale now via Bard on the Beach.

Making Strides in the Sea-to-Sky

This fall, the Whistler Half Marathon returns! Under a new, adapted format, this much loved Sea-to-Sky event safely brings runners and walkers back on course, with BlueShore cheering them on as Platinum Partner. The benefits of maintaining physical wellness are endless and we are we are committed to supporting athletic events in our communities as they are gradually permitted in-person once again.

The event is being offered at limited capacity to allow for a boutique running event with COVID-19 safety precautions in place. Against a backdrop of Whistler’s stunning scenery, the Whistler Half Marathon takes place over Thanksgiving weekend and proudly supports Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. 

Interested in participating? More information and general registration is now available on the Whistler Half Marathon website.
