Welcome to the B Scene! ~ Jason Freeze (@JasonFreeze)
Welcome everyone to our new publication: the B Scene! The B Scene is so named to represent both Brantford and Brant and for its depiction of the event and cultural scene that this great region has to offer. Both Richard and I wanted to create this publication in order to give people a chance to voice their stories and showcase their ventures.
And what a story it’s been to get here to our first publication, but we’ve finally made it! We’ve only taken about 2 months from creating the idea to organizing and printing it, so it’s been quite a whirlwind experience bringing it all together.
Once The Brant Advocate announced that they were ending their publications in late July, it was clear from the outpouring of responses that there was a great need for the continuation of an independent, story driven publication. With that in mind, we sat down with Marc and Lucas to chat about how we could fill that need. After that Richard and I discussed and created the B Scene and have always been on the go to since!
As a lifelong resident of Brantford (third generation Brantfordian even!) it’s great to be able to work with, and connect with this #BRANTastic community! Both Richard and I are looking forward to showcasing some great stories and events in the region. As local #BrantPreneurs and marketers, we’re excited to be able to bring Brantford & Brant this great opportunity. We want to be a big voice for everything positive and local and to be a voice for those to engage with and connect with their community.
With that in mind, I’d like to thank everyone for the support and encouragement as well as everyone who’s been involved with getting the publication going! I’ve enjoyed connecting with lots of community members about stories, ads, and all the business functions behind the paper. Also, a big thanks to everyone at the Advocate for showing us all that there are a lot of stories and ventures out there that need to be highlighted.
If you want to get involved and showcase your story or venture, please give us a shout out! We hope you enjoy our first edition and look forward to showcasing even more of this region’s stories!http://www.bscene.ca/bscene/welcome-to-bscene/https://i2.wp.com/www.bscene.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/BSceneA.jpg?fit=640%2C480https://i2.wp.com/www.bscene.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/BSceneA.jpg?fit=150%2C150BrantBRANTasticBrantfordBScene
