The Exhibition Lands Project Team is happy to announce that the Ideas Generation phase for the project was officially launched this week. We have a dedicated Ideas Portal, as well as a RFEOI (Request for Expressions of Interest) process - in this second instance, more geared to industry / institutional proposals.

We wanted you to be aware of this opportunity for citizens and staff. Please feel free to share both links with your contacts.

Thanks again for your participation and support to this exciting city-building initiative.

RISE Book Club: Indigenous Writes (April 27, 2018)

Join us for the next RISE Book Club gathering as we discuss Indigenous Writes with author Chelsea Vowel in attendance! Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/rise-book-club-indigenous-writes-tickets-43658559928

In Indigenous Writes, Chelsea Vowel, legal scholar, teacher, and intellectual, opens an important dialogue about these (and more) concepts and the wider social beliefs associated with the relationship between Indigenous peoples and Canada. In 31 essays, Chelsea explores the Indigenous experience from the time of contact to the present, through five categories – Terminology of Relationships; Culture and Identity; Myth-Busting; State Violence; and Land, Learning, Law, and Treaties. She answers the questions that many people have on these topics to spark further conversations at home, in the classroom, and in the larger community.

River Crossing (April 25, 2018)

Join us for the River Crossing Business Plan workshop.

April 25, 2018
6:30 to 9 p.m. (doors open at 6)
Old Timers Cabin, 9430 Scona Rd NW

Share your perspectives on River Crossing/West Rossdale

The River Crossing area in West Rossdale is an important place in our city, with a historically and culturally significant past. The City’s business plan will build on the Heritage Interpretive Plan and West Rossdale Urban Design Plan and is a key step toward advancing the River Crossing vision -- to transform West Rossdale into a vibrant community and special place for all Edmontonians.

Join us at a second workshop about the River Crossing Business Plan on April 25! This event will be an opportunity for the public to share their perspectives on the future redevelopment of River Crossing (West Rossdale). This event will focus on four big questions:

  • How do we draw people to River Crossing?

  • How do we move to and through River Crossing?

  • How do we make River Crossing a complete community?

  • How do we steward River Crossing sustainably?

Shumka presents Ancestors & Elders (April 28, 2018)

Shumka presents Ancestors & Elders… exploring the power of tradition and truth. In a world premiere production featuring a cast of Shumka Dancers and multidisciplinary Indigenous artists, we share a story of the first Ukrainian newcomers to Canada, exploring the shared values and respected differences between these hopeful settlers and the First Nations people they encounter in a new land.


A friend of mine invited me out to the performance on April 28th at 7:30. A former student of mine is part of the show and Lana Whiskeyjack, which some of you know, is one of the visual artists.


Here is the link if you are interested.
