  • Building your CV with Classics and Crossings

    Students are often excluded from participating in many of the activities, events and accomplishments that are hallmarks of academic careers as academics themselves. But at the University of Winnipeg (U of W), there are initiatives trying to change that and engage undergraduate and graduate students as academics rather than assistants.

    Some artists take years to specialize in their field. Others pick up a pencil or a paintbrush and instantly feel a connection. Fourteen-year-old Essey Habtu has only been painting for the last couple of years but has already started to make a name for himself in Winnipeg’s arts scene.

  • A record high

    Although the rise in vinyl sales has evolved for the past 10 years, the layoffs and remote work of the COVID-19 pandemic have undoubtedly reminded music admirers of the goodold feeling of switching sides of a record every 20 minutes.

  • Who owns the streets?

    Winnipeg – particularly in the urban areas – is rife with street art, from stickers to murals and beyond.
