The Shoebox Project l Aceart: fire river plane stone and The Forgotten Space l Artisans Market Sale l A Luncheon with Gary Doer l Tim Redford Band

The Shoebox Project is a non-profit initiative that asks people to fill a shoebox with little luxuries and deliver it to drop off locations in their community. Local volunteers deliver these gift boxes to women living in shelters during the holidays.

You can participate by locating your community in Canada and making a shoebox!


THE WINNIPEG SHOEBOX PROJECT, with a list of drop-off locations
Your shoeboxes will be delivered to the residents of Alpha HouseIkwe Widdjiitiwin and Osborne House.

Along with other locations, the Winnipeg Public Library is participating in The Shoebox Project, providing the Millennium Library, the Henderson Library and the Pembina Trail Library as drop-off locations.

Please drop off your shoebox between November 18 and December 10 and our volunteers will deliver your gifts to local shelters in time for the holidays.

We have contacted Agape House in Steinbach, and Nova House in Selkirk, and invited them to participate.

fire river plane stone: Boreal Moments Unheard and Imagined
Free admission l For more information

Discover what lies underneath sounds – the space in between and elements unheard. Inspired by trips into the Boreal forest, multidisciplinary artist Ken Gregory presents an immersive audio installation designed to bring the act of listening into focus. Are you hearing what I am hearing? This installation seeks to engage our sense of hearing as the primary sense and challenge our perception of the natural world.
December 5, 7:30 pm
Film Screening: The Forgotten Space by Allan Sekula and Noël Burch
Doors at 7:30 PM l Film at 8:00 PM
Admission: $5.00 -  net proceeds will be donated to aceartinc. 

Described by Artforum as a "mythopoeic essay on modernity and the sea," The Forgotten Space, based on Sekula’s Fish Story, follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. 

Visit displaced farmers and villagers in Holland and Belgium, underpaid truck drivers in Los Angeles, seafarers aboard mega-ships shuttling between Asia and Europe, and factory workers in China, whose low wages are the fragile key to the whole puzzle.  A range of materials is used: descriptive documentary, interviews, archive stills and footage, clips from old movies.
