The annual Winnipeg Anarchist Bookfair takes place on Oct. 28 from 12-6 p.m. at the Millennium Library. The event is in collaboration with Canzine: A festival of zines and underground culture and will feature many publications. Panel and workshop titles include: Zine Machine for Kids and Teens; Resistance in Winnipeg Treaty 1 Territory; and Reading with Queens. Admission is free.
On Oct. 27, Bodegoes will say farewell to the Exchange District after over 17 years of operations. This follows an April ruling placing the building at 98 Albert St. on the city’s “commemorative list,” rather than marking it as an historical building. Some locals fear demolition. The Cityplace location will remain open, and catering, delivery, and SkipTheDishes services will remain available.
A Wholesome Life
Jordan Stranger of Peguis First Nation will have his debut art show at The Edge Gallery (622 Main St.). The exhibition, entitled A Wholesome Life, seeks to share Stranger’s experiences growing up First Nations in today’s modern society. The opening on Oct. 27 will feature food and music, and the art will be up at the gallery until Nov. 1.
