  • Gardens at the leaf now in bloom

    The Gardens at The Leaf, a “place where nature and culture unite,” opened this summer at Assiniboine Park. This outdoor attraction is part of the final phase of Assiniboine Park’s 2009 redevelopment plan. This nearly 30-acre greenspace comprises six distinct exhibits.

  • Where arts and active transportation intersect

    Winnipeg holds many intersections of arts and active transportation. Monthly events like Bike Jam bring together arts, community and physical activity in tandem with events like the Rainbow Trout Music Festival.

  • Laughing into the 20s

    Comedians from across the country will arrive in Winnipeg for the 20th anniversary of the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, taking place from Oct. 5 to 10.

    A lineup filled with talent and charisma is set to charm audiences after the uncertainty of whether a celebration would be possible due to COVID-19 restrictions.

  • Stepping up to booking

    The Good Will Social Club is a hub for local and visiting artists to play tunes, have faceoffs and unite people with the venue’s electric karaoke sessions. All these events couldn’t happen without someone to connect with musicians and organize dates to make these arrangements a reality.

  • Reimagining Nuit Blanche

    Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is one of the city’s most anticipated fall events, typically spanning across the core urban area with multitudes of art installations running late into the night.

  • Nice fall things

  • Millennial digs

  • ‘On the shoulders of the unvaccinated’

    I broke one of the cardinal rules of journalism. I read the comments.

  • Therapy from home actually worked for me

    Everyone should have the chance to go to therapy.

    Not because we’re all dealing with serious mental illnesses, but because it’s beneficial to talk out tough and negative feelings.

  • Millennial blues

    Recently, a very interesting video has been circulating various social-media platforms. In it, an older, seemingly wiser Steve from Blue’s Clues – the beloved television show many millennials grew up watching – gives a heartfelt speech about how proud he is of all that we, his now-adult viewers, have accomplished.

  • ‘Throw the box out the window’

    For Kristi Kenyon, one of the best things about being an associate professor at the University of Winnipeg’s (U of W) Global College is the energy of the classroom.

    “The world kind of changes in the classroom,” she says. “We’re learning from each other. We’re having conversations. It’s a safe space to think through new ideas.”

  • ‘It’s not your fault…you’re not alone’

    On Sept. 17, approximately 10,000 Western University students, faculty and staff walked out of classes to protest the rape culture and sexism impacting their campus and campuses everywhere – as well as to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence.

  • Empty towers

    Working from home has its perks. Sweatpants, new pets and sleep-ins are certainly appreciated by workers. For small businesses downtown, however, the lack of office workers
    due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been economically devastating and has accelerated some negative trends that existed prior to 2020.

  • Horoscopes

    The sun harmonizes with Pluto

  • Sex after heartbreak

    After we share our life with another person for a significant period of time and choose to part ways, we must grieve this loss. The initial fear may be loneliness: to be apart from your bedtime companion and the lips you want to kiss after a long, lousy day. But to transition out of this love and familiar touch is a reminder to come home again to ourselves, for we have not left. We were always here, and will always be here.
