"Creative expression is vital for the health and wellness of a community," B.C. Culture Days manager Nazanin Shoja said in a press release. "With hundreds of engaging and exciting community events taking place across British Columbia, I have no doubt there will be an event that will cater to every taste and interest, while encouraging exploration into new artistic ventures."

In Prince George, local artist Sebastian Nicholson has organized a public art installation, called The Spores of Joy, to encourage residents to look for the fungus among us.

Nicholson made concrete molds of assorted tree fungi, which were painted by community members during a series of workshops in July and August. The painted molds will be installed in groups in public places around the city.

From Sept. 27 to 29, maps showing the locations of the installations will be available at Two Rivers Gallery or online at www.sebastiannicholson.com.

People who find the art installations are encouraged to share photos on social media using the hashtag #SporesOfJoy.

On Sept. 27, the Prince George Public Library will host an educational scavenger hunt at the Bob Harkins Branch of the library.

Dive into Dewey is a free, drop-in event for children aged five to nine years old to learn about how the Dewey Decimal System works. The event starts at 3 p.m. at the Keith Gordon Room on the main floor.
