  9. My name is Ashley Salvador. I’m the president and founder of YEGarden Suites, a local non-profit that educates community members on the process of building garden suites (small, sustainable, homes in people’s backyard). Garden Suites help create more walkable, healthy neighbourhoods, and contribute to developing more affordable, sustainable housing forms. Many homeowners are turning to garden suites as a way to off-set their mortgage or downsize from their current home.

    I wanted to reach out to let you know that we are hosting a garden suite workshop series on May 14th, 16th, and 22nd, with our self-guided garden suite tour happening on June 1st. At these workshops, we bring in the City of Edmonton, garden suite owners, builders, designers, and financing experts to have them speak about the ins and outs of garden suites in Edmonton. Tickets are available on our website – http://www.yegardensuites.ca.

    I was wondering if you would be willing to lend us a hand, and share this event through your network (via twitter, facebook, newsletters, or whatever else you see fit). Our goal is to get as many Edmontonians out as possible to these events so that we can continue to generate interest in developing more dense, walkable neighbourhoods that fit the needs of a diverse population.

    I have an event poster that I can share as well.

    Kindly,
    Ashley Salvador

    June 21 & 22, 2019, 3 – 11 PM

    Edmonton, June 01, 2019: As day turns into night, Just A Little Night Market opens for a little summer solstice fun… all ages are welcome.

    What is a night market anyways? Ask the Head Mermaid, Trina Shipanoff and she will tell you tongue in cheek “well…it’s a market at night…and no… it is not a farmer’s market”. Everything is handpicked by the Head Mermaid. Stroll through the fabulous marketplace in the historic Aviation Hangar and what you will discover is the new, the novel and the in-between, 80+ vendors who embody the spirit of what is uniquely YEG. A little something for everyone, babies, men & their hair…clothing, vintage… old records, chocolate, pizza, psychics, ice cream, donuts… just to name a few.

    Just a Little Night Market is special, it was the first of its kind in Edmonton. uniquely Edmonton, it is not your traditional Asian market…it has the spirit of Europe… where people come to gather and enjoy the moment’s in-between, to laugh with others and get a break from the everyday.

    The Head Mermaid is a certified sommelier and she often will be seen in the wine garden greeting guests new and old, sharing her laughter and wine knowledge. The pioneers of Alberta is Yellowhead Brewery, they are the night markets beer sponsor. Add the best local live talent of YEG, root beer for the kids and what comes together is a great, good place where everyone is welcome. You might even see a mermaid…if you are pure of heart.

    Why support Just A Little Night Market? We are a non-profit company whose objective is to make people happy while doing good, one market at a time. How do we do that? We partner with local community groups offering spaces to bring awareness to their causes, we provide opportunities for the underemployed to gain much needed paid work experiences, we work with new entrepreneurs and local talent for what is often their first experience in the private sector. A portion of proceeds goes to Rotary and Random Acts of Kindness.

    This year you will not want to miss the Hoop dancing on summer solstice or the amazing line-up of local YEG talent.
    Just A Little Night market because some of the best things in #yeg are the ones you discover.

  13. Hello! I am contributor for Eat North and we were wondering if it would be possible to list an upcoming event taking place at CKUA Radio Hall on your events page. Thanks so much!

    Event Description:

    We are happy to announce the return of our much-celebrated Prairie Grid Dinner Series for fall 2019. Back for its third year, this year’s dinner series has an all-new chef lineup and will focus on the theme of innovation.

    Chefs Christine Sandford (Biera, Edmonton), Scott Redekopp (Yellow Door Bistro, Calgary), Chris Gama (Clementine, Winnipeg), Katelin Bland (Lulu Bar, Calgary) and Bryn Rawlyk (The Night Oven and Darkside Donuts, Saskatoon) will collaborate on a menu that highlights the technological evolution of culinary practices over the past century.

    Whether it’s experiencing a technique such as stone-grinding heritage grains and using wood-burning ovens for sourdough loaves or sous vide to caramelize rich dairy from Saskatchewan’s Sunnyside Creamery for a dessert, diners will have a delicious meal created with Prairie-grown ingredients while watching each course evolve in complexity.

    To further involve the chefs in the creative process, Eau Claire Distillery worked with them to create the botanical combination for our 2019 Prairie Grid Dinner Series gin. The new custom release’s botanical mix includes dandelion, haskap berries and rose hips, and will be available to purchase in limited quantities at select Alberta liquor stores starting August 29.

    Porter’s Tonic has matched this new and unique gin with a tart and herbaceous sour cherry tonic syrup. As well, Saskatchewan’s Living Sky Winery has created a custom sparkling rhubarb wine specifically for the dinner series. The fruit winery’s first bubbly creation will make its debut in September.

    The Prairie Grid Dinner Series, which began in fall 2017, is Canada’s only travelling pop-up restaurant and celebrates all aspects of Prairie food and creative culture. By involving some of the region’s top chefs, artists, fashion designers and makers, the series organizer, Dan Clapson, is especially excited for the series’ third annual run.

    Alberta-based quilt maker Cheryl Arkison will present stunning Prairie landscape quilts in an unexpected and unique display, while seemingly minimalistic aprons by Saskatoon designer Laurie Brown and futuristic slim packs by Calgary-born Caitlin Power will facilitate the servers who will be offering some surprising “tech” features throughout the evening.

    Synonym Art Consultation has helped commission custom illustrated artwork for the 2019 series and curated a travelling art exhibit. The exhibit will profile a mix of work by Prairie muralists who have been involved in Synonym’s annual Wall-to-Wall mural festival, which is now in its sixth year in Winnipeg.

    There are only 120 tickets available for each Prairie Grid dinner, each at $145 (plus tax). A limited number of whole table purchases (8 seats) are available in each city at a discounted rate of $135 (plus tax) per seat.

    Ticket price includes a welcome cocktail hour with live music, drinks courtesy of event partners Eau Claire Distillery and Village Brewery followed by a five-course dinner that includes wine pairings.

    Prairie Grid Dinner Series: Innovation is brought to you by Eat North, Carter Cadillac, Village Brewery, Calgary Produce Marketing Association and Eau Claire Distillery.

  14. I am interested in listing our community event with you and I am hoping you can point me in the right direction.

    Background
    We are a non-profit company that is doing good one night market at a time. We focus our efforts on hiring (and paying) our staff which are typically underemployed from either the Bissell Centre Work Program or the new Mennonite Centre. We use a portion of funds raised for our Random Acts of Kindness fund which helps out people and organizations throughout our community, as well as funding community tables at our events to bring awareness to local causes. We support local YEG music and Rotary for their work here and abroad.

    Our next event will run on Oct 4 & 5. Aviation Hangar, 11410 Kingsway NW, 3-11 PM each night. Cost: $5.00

    This is the blurb we use for event submissions:
    Just a Little Night Market is a marketplace, open at night. It is a place where people gather to put aside their day for the simple pleasures found in lively conversation, local music, food & drink. Unique goods, entertainment and curiosities, you are never sure what you will find. We are doing good one night market at a time. Our charities of choice support the underemployed, random acts of kindness and Rotary. Our next event will run on Oct 4 & 5. Aviation Hangar, 11410 Kingsway NW, 3-11 PM each night. Cost: $5.00

    Please let me know if this opportunity is possible, we look forward to working with you!

  15. Good afternoon,

    My name is Lindsey and I am the Organic Week Coordinator at Organic Alberta. I am wondering if it would be possible for you to promote an upcoming event we are hosting with your networks.

    To celebrate Organic Week, we are hosting a screening of Katharina Stieffenhofer’s FROM SEED TO SEED on September 10th at the Garneau Theatre. FROM SEED TO SEED is a feature-length documentary about the growing momentum of ecological agriculture, a blend of small and large scale farmers, cutting edge science with age old traditions, and fascinating folks. On this journey through a growing season from seeding to harvest, we experience this beautiful and sometimes harsh world of those who grow our food. Here is the film website if you’d like more information: http://fromseedtoseed.com/

    Here is a link to our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/555837018283329/ please share it and invite those you think would be interested 🙂

    There will be an excellent silent auction starting at 6:15 and the film will start at 7:00.

    Admission is by donation (cash, cheque or e-transfer).

    Thank you so much!

    Sincerely,
    Lindsey Oh

  19. Hi there!

    The UofA’s Metis Settlements Life SKills Journey Project is hosting our 4th annual Indigenous Artisans Holiday Market Nov. 20, and I wanted to ask if it would be possible to be included in a future enewsletter?

    The market first began as a way for our project (Metis Settlements Life Skills Journey Project) to support urban Indigenous artists, and provide an opportunity to showcase their culture and talent. At the time, there wasn’t anything similar and we have been thrilled to see it grow, and witness collectives and partnerships formed as a result of the connections made at our event. Many of the artists are new to Edmonton, and meeting other Indigenous artists helps build a sense of community for them in the city.

    This year will be our biggest yet, with 31 vendors featuring Indigenous artists from across Alberta, BC, and NWT. There is no charge to artists for their table and participation on the market. No fee helps reduce a lot of barriers new artists face when trying to sell their work. Local organizations such as Boyle Street also take part as a way to give their clients the opportunity to sell their work. Since the market has no entrance fee for shoppers, we will also be collecting donations of personal items (new socks, new underwear, soap, etc) for Youth Empowerment & Social Services.

    If there’s any opportunities to showcase these artists, please let me know.

    Thank you,
    Mandy

  20. Join us on Saturday, November 23rd for the first-of-its-kind free leadership training workshop on The Impacts of Artificial Intelligence on our Life”. This workshop is co-hosted by Alberta Artificial Intelligence Association and sponsored by the City of Edmonton.

It’s a great place to find some original Christmas presents for your loved ones. The market will be at ACUA, located at 9534 87 St NW, Edmonton. It will take place from 10AM-4PM. See you there!

  22. In conjunction with Arts & Health Month, Find Boutique on Jasper (12304 Jasper Ave) is partnering with some really talented artists from iHuman Youth Society for a night of culture, art and fun!

    Join us as we celebrate the work of 3 amazing young artists and create a space for them to show off their talents this Thursday November 21st from 7-10pm at Find Boutique on Jasper (12304 Jasper Ave).

    Onsite we will have Matt Cardinal, an emerging visual artist who has recently worked on several large public pieces in our city including murals at LRT stations, Amina Ahmed, an aspiring textile artist / fashion designer who is developing her technical skills while creating one of a kind clothing pieces which will be on display and Albert ‘Faves’ Favel who is making waves nationally as a spoken word artist, musician, and mental health advocate, will be presenting some of the pieces he created for the 2019 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.

    The artists will have pieces for sale at the event. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

    Admission is by cash donation at the door with proceeds going towards iHuman Studios, a unique Edmonton arts collective composed of artists between the ages of 12 and 24.

As we move beyond the grip of consumerism, it is a time to let the deeper, yet playful part of ourselves emerge and to open the Heart’s imagination of everyday miracles.
    Enchanting songs, stories, profoundly moving. Come rest and be nourished.

We will be opening our annual exhibition of Canadian Photography on February 3rd, 2020 and I believe that your readers would be interested to learn more about this upcoming arts and culture event. This exhibition offers Albertans a wonderful cultural experience, a networking opportunity for attending artists and industry professionals, as well as an opportunity to support our Canadian artists. Drawing new attention to Alexis Chute’s work as Curator will also serve to educate your local artists about the recurring opportunities she offers to present their artwork of various mediums in a professional and supportive environment. I have included more information for you below as well as attaching the press release for your consideration.

    In a time of Political Change and Environmental Accountability, a New Photography Exhibit Adds to the Dialogue

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    Change. None would argue that the world is in a season of intense transition. The environment is top of mind, reflected in Gretta Thunberg selection as Time’s Person of the Year, 2019. Politically, Canada (not to mention the USA’s Trump saga) is in the throngs of new governments and policy. The average person is more vocal about change than ever before; social media can be a contentious place.

    In the sea of opinions, InFocus Photo Exhibit—a national photography show tackles the idea of “Change” in a visual way. InFocus offers a variety of views expressed by Canadians of diverse cultural and social backgrounds, allowing us to see and consider the changes in our world from new perspectives. The exhibit includes images of our natural world in its state of change, as well as politically charged portraiture.

    InFocus Curator, Alexis Marie Chute, says, “I believe now is a perfect time to talk about change. The InFocus photographers prompt conversation and add to the dialogue through their images, which challenge us to think about our environment—our natural world and our urban centers—and ask ourselves: what can we do to make this place better?”

    The 6th annual InFocus Photo Exhibit presents contemporary Canadian photography as one of the nation’s major photographic surveys. The exhibit is held in Edmonton, Alberta all February and March 2020. Located in the gallery at the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel, the artwork receives international exposure to the daily flood of travelers. The public can view the photographs 24/7 and specifically hear from Chute at the opening party on Wednesday, February 7 from 7—9pm.

The mural was created by local female artist, Lauren B. Sanchez, who is an emerging visual artist, art and yoga teacher, and self-published author based in Mohkinstsis, Treaty 7 (Calgary, AB). Kingsway invites guests to come take a photo in front of the mural and post it to Instagram, tagging @kingswaymall and #BreaktheBias. For every photo posted, $1 will be donated to WIN House.
