Snowy stories

That white stuff is swirling about outside, and it may prompt some Winnipeggers to turn their focus to more indoor activities – at least until we’ve collected enough ground cover for building snow sculptures!

This week, we’ve collected a fresh batch of stories to keep you entertained, inspired and possibly even thinking about new ideas.

For those who’d rather stay at home, check out Colour of Scar Tissue, a series released through APTN’s YouTube channel.

If you’re looking to venture out to experience some arts and culture, we have a Critipeg review of Vietgone, which runs until Nov. 17 at the Tom Hendry Warehouse Theatre, and a preview of Making Our Mark III: Interface, a printmaking show exhibiting at Martha Street Studio through Dec. 1.

Or pop on over to Latinos Market’s new second location on Portage Avenue to warm up with flavours from all over Latin America.

While it may be getting chilly, you can still show up for Meet Me at the Bell Tower – they’re working with Wahbung Abinoonjiiag Inc. on an event for Nov. 9.

On campus, we’ve got some ideas for financial support for students and an opportunity to develop speaking skills with Toastmasters.

Throughout this issue – and especially on the cover this week – there are a few important discussions happening, including the question of how we even hold and engage with debate. In Frances Koncan’s column, she addresses the political nuances of voting. And in the comments section, we explore a bit more about the concept of harm reduction.

Whether you’re out and about or reading this note while the snow falls safely on the other side of a window, I hope this issue of The Uniter offers a little space to further explore our local doers and thinkers.
