ACI Manitoba and Judith Marcuse (Director the International Centre of Art for Social Change) invite you to explore community-engaged work in the arts.
Topics ranging from teaching and learning, arts-infused facilitation, evaluation and impact assessment, to the development of partnerships.
Everyone is invited.  Please wear comfortable clothing.

Judith Marcuse’s career spans over 40 years. She has created over 100 original works for live performance by dance, theatre and opera companies as well as for film and television and has produced seven international arts festivals. Her repertory contemporary dance company toured extensively in Canada and abroad for 15 years.

Learn how to write a grant for your individual art practice, including budgets, CVs, artist statements and project proposals. There will be discussion about how to select support materials and how to best introduce and present your idea and yourself.

Challenge Austerity, Build Solidarity!
Are you worried about what a win for Brian Pallister's PCs will mean for people in Manitoba? Critical of the NDP government's record in office too?
This community forum will be an opportunity to get involved in a campaign to prevent a PC (or Liberal) win that's independent of the NDP.  

After hearing from speakers we'll form action teams on issues like poverty, resources and the environment, workers' rights and unions, and prisons and policing. 
Come and get involved!
Free! Snacks provided. 
Child-minding will be provided with advance notice. 
Please email us by Jan. 23 to register for child-minding 

Organized by Solidarity Winnipeg, a new group that aims to unite people to fight for social and ecological justice in the spirit of the Leap Manifesto.
We believe that no matter which party wins the election, we need to mobilize against austerity and for the kind of change people need. Join us!

The film must be directed by a Canadian citizen or resident, Canada must be an official country of production, and the film must have been released commercially or played at a major film festival in Canada. The selections are each chosen by a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals from across Canada.
