Arts & Disability Culture is the shared achievements and celebration of the unflinching voices of artists who work with and not in spite of their differences. Susan Lamberd presents the works of many artists, illustrating how their challenges enable them and others to contribute to society by reducing social exclusion.

Susan Lamberd is a multi-disciplinary artist interested in challenging the preconceived notions of what disabled artists can achieve.

Sappho Zine Presents: Together - A Zine Making Party!
Free event and open to all! 
Come warm up on a chilly Saturday eve with yummy snacks and bumpin’ tunes.

The theme of the zine is "Together" and we will have tables and craft/collage supplies set up so you can create a page for the zine. Feel free to bring some of your own supplies! We're encouraging you to think of some ideas for a piece before the event. The format for a page in the zine is 8.5 in by 5.5 in. The zine will be printed in black and white. At the end of the night we'll collect all the pieces and format them into our next issue!

If you want to submit but can’t make it to the event please email your submission

The Pines presented by Winnipeg Folk Festival
A truly unique sound that captures ears and stimulates the mind. The Pines is a band that has taken on this feat, honing their musical craft to near perfection with a sound that wavers on the edge of traditional acoustic/roots music, but embraces the nuances of today's indie-rock and blues music.

Fellow Iowans David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey began playing music together, forming The Pines. They returned to their Midwestern roots and settled in Minneapolis, a music haven that has launched the career of folk and rock legend Bob Dylan.

I support Shoal Lake 40 and the construction of "Freedom Road", which would give them year-round access to the Transcanada Hwy, and therefore access to services and contact with the rest of Canada. They have lived in isolation ever since a decision was made about 100 years ago to build an aqueduct that would supply clean drinking water to Winnipeg. Now they themselves cannot access clean drinking water, and have been under a boil water advisory for nearly two decades. A road would allow a proper water treatment plant to be built. 

As my friend Steve Bell put it to me one day, any time something is "taken" from someone else, there is usually some kind of 'exchange'. Much was taken from the people of Shoal Lake 40, and what has been the fair exchange? Winnipeg is the clear winner, and we profit every time we turn on our tap. Tragically, nine lives have been lost while crossing the water, trying to connect to services or to "get home". We must not close our eyes. 

My plea to you today is to sign this petition. The City has said they will pay for a third of the cost of the road (with the province and the federal gov't to make up the rest). This will not happen unless it is officially penned into a budget line.
Canadian communities should not be living with years of boil water advisories, and we all agree that clean water is a basic human right. 
Can we support our own citizens here?
I'm humbly asking: Please sign. Thank you!
