FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The ArtsPost in Fort St. John has launched a new artsy initiative for residents to show their support for pipelines and other resource-based economic drivers in Northern B.C.

From now until May 17th, the ArtsPost will be giving away free hard hats for residents to paint in order to show their support for the oil and gas, and other northern industries. After May 6th, the hard hats will also be available to pick up at Peace Gallery North in the NPCC.

The Artspost is asking residents to paint their hard hats and then bring them back to the Art Gallery by May 17th. Then on May 19th, the Gallery will be hosting a free toast event to the pipeline, hosted by the Fort St. John Arts Council and AAA Safety.
