  • Travelling was necessary for me

    This autumn, with COVID-19 cases at a steady low and a permanent residency card in hand, I decided to visit family members and my long-time boyfriend in São Paulo, Brazil. The holiday break seemed like an incredible opportunity to book a trip to my home country. 

  • Right here, right now

    As most things, exhibitionism exists on a spectrum. Not everyone who gets titillated at the thought of possibly being caught in the act receives sexual gratification specifically from “indecent exposure of one’s genitals.”

  • Languages speak louder than barriers

    Communication is key to fostering relationships, establishing professional connections and for simple tasks like asking for proper directions to a destination. Learning a new language has become a necessity for many people living abroad, as well as an important means of expression for families with international backgrounds.

  • The curtains are up, and there’s no place to hide

    For many, post-secondary education is a pivotal time in one’s life – a time to make and learn from mistakes without fear of jeopardizing a career.

  • PCs just keep failing on healthcare

    On Wednesday, Jan. 19, Manitoba’s task force on the growing backlog of surgeries and diagnostic tests announced their plans to address this crisis. While it’s good that something is being done, it’s important to remember that this is a mess made by this government’s yearslong assault on healthcare.

  • Volunteer-driven

    At a time when industries are finding it extremely difficult to keep their doors open due to staffing shortages, organizations are facing similar challenges recruiting volunteers. This is an issue, as many larger music events and festivals rely heavily on volunteers to operate.

  • New Year, Same Sh*t

    I was excited to nicely tuck away the “pandemic part” of my life away and go back to “normal.”

  • Hyperempathy is exhausting and beautiful

    A few years ago, I was with my family watching the movie Cast Away for the first time. The main character’s happy ending was crashing down around him, and I was inconsolable.

  • PROFile: Fundamental to Medieval Studies

    Although his speciality is medieval history, Jason Brown, instructor in the Department of Classics at the University of Winnipeg (U of W), has studied Latin extensively.

  • From the campus to the community

    While rising COVID-19 case counts and cold temperatures had many Winnipegers keeping their social circles small during the winter holidays, the University of Winnipeg Students Association (UWSA) and Wii Chiiwaakanak Learning Centre both held community outreach initiatives to spread some support.

  • 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.

  • Courage can move a mountain

    Nature is a source of inspiration for artists across various creative disciplines. For singer-songwriter and violinist Raine Hamilton, their passion for music combined with their admiration for mountains and land formations ultimately drove them to create the studio album Brave Land.

  • Who owns the streets?

    Winnipeg – particularly in the urban areas – is rife with street art, from stickers to murals and beyond. Passersby may notice reclaimed household items, painted and emblazoned with a simple message: press on. Posters are modified with robot heads, and the lost character from Where’s Waldo can be found repeatedly in different iterations.
