HEAVY METAL is a 1981 Canadian-American adult animated anthology science fiction fantasy film with anthology of various science fiction and fantasy stories adapted from Heavy Metal magazine and original stories. 

AC/DC live at the Pavillion De Paris on December 9, 1979, during the tour that would be singer Bon Scott's last. AC/DC is still in their '70s minimalist era with few stage effects, the live performance is considered one of the most energetic of their career. The live concert is intercut with quasi-fictional interviews with the members of the band.

John K. Samson celebrates the release of second solo album Winter Wheat 
Inspired by the search for connection and community, his hometown of Winnipeg, and our individual and collective struggles with addictions, John K. Samson’s Winter Wheat is a sprawling, masterful and timely work by a writer at the peak of his powers. 

Winter Wheat was produced in garages and homes through a challenging Winnipeg winter by Samson’s partner and collaborator, Christine Fellows, and his Weakerthans co-founder and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Tait, and mixed in the spring in Toronto by Robbie Lackritz (Bahamas, Feist). The spare and thoughtful arrangements also feature Greg Smith of The Weakerthans on electric bass, Ashley Au on double and electric bass, Leanne Zacharias on cello, and Shotgun Jimmie on electric guitar.

Songwriter Christine Fellows will be opening. Christine and John were recently named Writers-in-Residence at the Winnipeg Public Library for 2016-2017.
Christine released Burning Daylight in 2014; this beautiful album and its companion book were her sixth full-length album and first collection of poetry respectively.

Quicksilver Halo, who sold hand crafted necklaces and charms at the United Kingdom Pavilion #@ukpavilion during the 2016 Folklorama, will be selling their artwork at the following events.

Monochrome Fall Fundraising Dinner and skills auction
Hosted by MAWA Mentoring Artists for Women's Art

MAWA’s fall supper is back … the costumed and culinary event of the year! Dress in a single hue and dine on infinite deliciousness, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Featuring an all-you-can eat buffet, fortune telling, performances and more! Plus you can bid on some of the many skills possessed by the MAWA community.

Monochrome is being held in support of MAWA’s Legacy Fund at the Winnipeg Foundation. Our aim is to grow this pot of money so we will be able to pay for the Foundation Mentorship Program. The fund has grown from less than $500 seven years ago to $57,990.

Please, if you have a skill that you’d like us to auction, drop Alison a note. We’d really appreciate your contribution of talent! This year we’ll also be auctioning experiences, so if you are willing to loan your cabin for a weekend or offer a playdate with your kittens, MAWA is most grateful for those contributions, too.

"Sounding Thunder: The Stories of Francis Pegahmagabow"
Dr. Brian McInnes
Department of Native Studies 2016-2017 Colloquium Series

Francis Pegahmagabow (1889–1952) was an Anishinaabe born in Shawanaga, Ontario. Enlisting in the First World War, he became the most decorated Canadian Indigenous soldier for bravery and the most accomplished sniper in North American military history. 

After the war, Pegahmagabow settled in Wasauksing, Ontario. He served his community as both chief and councillor and belonged to the Brotherhood of Canadian Indians. Francis also recorded many stories describing many parts of his life in a classic Ojibwe narrative.

Join scholar and Indigenous language advocate Brian McInnes as he provides valuable insights on Francis’s words and world. Presented in their original Ojibwe, as well as in English translation, the stories also reveal a rich and evocative relationship to the lands and waters of Georgian Bay. Buy a copy of the book

Brian D. McInnes, a faculty member in the Department of Education at the University of Minnesota Duluth, is an advocate for and speaker of Anishinaabemowin. A member of the Wasauksing First Nation, Brian is a great-grandson of Francis Pegahmagabow. Sounding Thunder is his first book.
