Silence is Violence #WinnipegAgainstFascism - a community conversation and support event, hosted by Black Space Winnipeg.

This past weekend caused uproar and civil turmoil in Charlottesville, Virginia. Since then, white nationalists, and neo-nazi supremacists have been declaring their rage across the US and in Canada. These recent actions come as no surprise for marginalized people. 

Support systems have been initiated across Winnipeg. We invite the public to come, share concerns, and suggestions for moving forward as a community. We ask folks coming to this event to show empathy, bring food and create support. We ask allies to the BIPOC community please come for 7:00 pm to ensure safe space for all participants. This is time for self care. This is time for education. For more information: blackspacewpg@gmail.com

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe. - Frederick Douglass

MRG Concerts West Presents Against Me! with Bleached and The Dirty Nil

Four years ago Laura Jane Grace, the Against Me!, front woman came out as transgender; 18 months later, she released the band’s sixth album, the fiery Transgender Dysphoria Blues, an intensely personal record.

Now Against Me! is releasing their new album, Shape Shift With Me. While much has changed for Grace, guitarist James Bowman, bassist Inge Johansson and drummer Atom Willard, it’s clear that those intervening years have done wonders for creativity.

In this year of Canada's 150th birthday, Winnipeg's Polish Folk Dance Ensemble SPK "ISKRY" will be celebrating their Golden Anniversary - 50 years of performing for audiences all around the world. Since its founding in 1967 by Henryk Lorenc, its primary purpose is to preserve and showcase Polish culture and folklore through traditional song and dance.

We invited Edmonton's Polish Dance Ensemble "Lowicz" as guest performers. The performance will showcase both new works and classics that weave together the rich fabric of the Polish culture.

In addition to regularly performing at the International Polish Dance Festival since 1993, "ISKRY" has been the annual entertainment mainstay at the Warsaw-Poland Pavilion during Winnipeg's Folklorama. Some other highlights of their history include performing at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, attending a private audience with Pope John Paul II in 1999, and joining the Winnipeg Royal Ballet in 2015 in their production of Swan Lake.

Please contact any current dancer of "ISKRY" or a member of the alumni to purchase one.
