A world premiere, written and performed by Debbie Patterson
Debbie Patterson’s bold new work intersects core- area residents with a disabled food bank volunteer in an attempt to unlock the mystery of how neighbourhoods evolve and how we cope with unstoppable processes of destruction.
Drawn from a series of first person accounts – each with their own unique perspective on the strengths and challenges of this troubled area, Sargent & Victor &Me is a haunting narrative infused with a potent honesty that illuminates Patterson’s capacity to touch difficult and often dark subject matter with humour and grace.
Kitchen Opening Celebration - an open house this Friday, Jan 31, from 11 am to 2 pm. Drop in. See the facility. Celebrate with some great food too!

Hey wonderful Winnipeggers!
The title speaks for itself, but I’ll go on anyway.
As a lover of the Fringe, I’ve gotta say, volunteering is one of the best ways to experience this festival. You feel good helping people out, you’re part of making it all happen, and you get to see some free shows to boot!
This year’s Fringe needs about 150 more volunteers to sign up! Get yer butt over to the website and be part of the awesomeness that is Fringe.

Are you an environmentalist? Urbanist? Against poverty?
Come down and meet other folks just like you. This evening will serve as an informal and casual way to meet other folks interested in activism, politics and change. Bring some ideas and be ready to listen to some new ones over a drink or two.
Lets keep it non partisan folks. And feel free to invite and bring some friends.
