Artspace, 100 Arthur Street

Join us for an architectural tour of the Gault Building (Artspace), including a visit to the roof. Access to the roof requires the ability to climb stairs. There is a lift to the lobby.

The Gault Building is a good example of a Richardsonian Romanesque-style warehouse. The substantial masonry structure, designed by George Browne to accommodate the western expansion of Montreal dry goods wholesaler A.F. Gault and Co., was among the first large warehouses built in response to Winnipeg's rise as a regional distribution centre. Increased business due to an immigration boom soon prompted the firm to expand its premises upward by two floors and to the south with a six-storey annex.

The Art of Recovery   2015, New Zealand, Director, Peter Young   85 minutes
After a massive earthquake shakes Christchurch city to its foundations, amid the ruins and continuing aftershocks a vibrant community-led movement emerges, transforming the urban wasteland of the central city into a giant canvas for people to express their responses to the earthquakes and their hopes for the city.

Downtown has become a frontier of creativity where new ideas flourish. From simple acts of kindness to large-scale works of art, each is a gift to a recovering city. Projects like Gap Filler’s Dance-O-mat and Pallet Pavilion, the profusion of street art and Peter Majendie’s 185 Empty Chairs Memorial have become iconic symbols of the grassroots urban movement and provide sharp contrast to central Government’s big business, corporate driven approach to the rebuild of the city. Soon, a new city will arise, but whose city will it be?

Cinematheque, 100 Arthur Street

Architecture+Film series: The Integral Man   Director: Joseph Clement  2016, Canada,
He decided against Frank Gehry, considered Rem Koolhaas and ultimately chose two young architects (Shim-Sutcliffe Architects) that would come to change contemporary architecture. 

Jim Stewart is the most published mathematician since Euclid, a concert level violinist, calculus professor, philanthropist, and gay rights activist. It took almost ten years to realize his dream, Integral House, which was completed in 2009. Designed around a stunning internal concert hall, it was hailed as a masterpiece by some of the greatest architecture and design critics in the world. Integral House, like Jim, was unlike anything else. Now confronting his inability to play violin as arthritis cripples his hands, Jim boldly faces his declining health, jumping head long into the role of impresario. As unexpected events unfold, Jim is left to make some of the most difficult decisions of his life.

Family-friendly Improv Every Second Friday of the Month!
The Crosseyed Rascals will perform two sets each night; a longer show with an intermission, and a shorter set of quick handles to end each night. 
What is improvisational theatre, or Improv? Well, take a bunch of talented actors with a basic story outline, add input from the audience, toss in a pinch of humour, throw in the anticipation of the unknown, shake that up and spill it onto a stage. That's Improv. 
Add a family friendly atmosphere and you've got The Crosseyed Rascals.
