Whether it’s to help those in their immediate circle, or those halfway across the world, many Winnipeggers are doing their part to make a difference in this world
The Uniter is run by the Mouseland Press and governed by a volunteer board. The board is a great place to bring visionary ideas for the future of the paper and to practice the skills needed to run a non-profit organization.
This week, we’re opening up nominations for our fourth annual Uniter Fiver music contest.
In a couple of weeks, we’ll hold our first event for this year’s Uniter Speaker Series. Join us on Nov. 21 for “Growing the Urban Landscape,” a panel discussion at the West End Cultural Centre with representatives from various BIZ agencies.
Halloween season is here, and most of the trees have dropped their leaves to show their bare skeletons. In this creepy in-betweeny time that’s not quite fall and not quite winter, we might hermit away a little more or venture out to face those things that scare us. In this issue, we’re exploring some truly scary topics.
We’ve got some fun things in the works in the next few weeks, and we need your help.
This spring, we tried an online-only version of The Uniter for reading week. This fall, we got a second reading week, and so we’re continuing on with this tradition.
Next week we’ll take a break from printing a paper, and we’re moving the weekly Uniter party over to uniter.ca for an online-only issue.
We’re back with a fresh new paper for you! If this whole newspaper business is new to you, welcome! I’ll give you a brief tour.
Although our summers may be shorter here, why not take a chance, try something new, and make the most of it?
This is it, readers. This is The Urban Issue – our last issue of the publication year.
This is our second-to-last issue of this production cycle, but in some ways, it’s also the last of its kind for this year...
We’ve had spring for a week now, so naturally, conversation in The Uniter offices has turned to the topic of fall.
We’ve finally landed in that awkward phase of spring that’s kind of like a pre-teen growth spurt. Winter boots may feel heavy, but we haven’t quite grown into sandal weather yet.
Fresh on the heels of our Indigenizing Media event with Red Rising Magazine on Feb. 4, we have another fantastic Speakers Series event in the works. On March 17, we’re partnering with the UWSA and Grass Routes Sustainability Festival to present Water and Indigenous Women’s Wisdom.
Students aren’t the only ones counting the days left in February and March.
We had a lot of fun with this one...
There’s a question still making its rounds through the media, in newsrooms, in classrooms, in online think pieces and sometimes even in actual printed newspapers. What’s going to happen to print journalism in an increasingly online-based world?
When we introduce new volunteers to The Uniter, we often start by telling them that The Uniter is a learning paper. What does that mean?
This year, we want to keep giving you the local, alternative arts coverage that you’ve come to count on, and also renew our commitment to our humble home here on campus.
