WHAT IS FOLKLIFE?
A magazine for the self-confessed (or not) window watchers.
Have you felt it? The change of air and energy and pace driving off the ferry that carried you across the ocean and onto the rock you call home or away? Have you breathed in that ultra-oxygenated air and took in the mass of green depths surrounding you? Have you felt your heartbeat quiet, your steps grow slower, and your openness for quiet connection in the bread aisle come over you?
It’s a connection to people who may be your neighbours, or beautiful strangers living deliberate lives. A connection to art, to community, to the beauty in the simple things, and to a romantic life of slow intention.
It’s island time; it’s intentional living; it’s paradise.
This is FOLKLIFE: a biannual print magazine inspired by the lives of wild intention on British Columbia’s gulf islands. Here at FOLKLIFE, we’re storytellers.
With our beautiful, minimalist design, poetic editorial, and vibrant photography, readers trust FOLKLIFE to be a window into the salty wild. FOLKLIFE showcases art and agriculture, business and creativity, food and farming, and dwellings and nature, all inspired by the intentional lives on British Columbia’s Gulf Islands.
As the only biannual lifestyle print magazine solely featuring content from the Gulf Islands, FOLKLIFE celebrates and connects those living simply, and as an art form, through engaging interviews, stories, photographs, recipes, and art.
We’re with our readers wherever they go and whenever they need a dose of inspiration or a quick and unique distraction to get them through the (very full) busy days. For them, FOLKLIFE is more than a magazine: we’re a friendly and inspiring way of life.
