Get involved!

Hi everyone!

This page was the one-stop source for everything anyone needed to know about participating in Showing Up, Speaking Out.

The project launched on September 3, 2010 and ran until October 5, 2010. The calendar below defaults to the current date, but if you’d like to see a summary of the various activities that took place, click back through time to find the dates of interest.

At this time (October 15, 2010), the blog portion of this project is behind in reporting on the many activities that took place daily.  While we work to catch up, please feel free to browse the many details already online to get a sense of the many ways in which community members showed up to speak out by forming spontaneous groups, some of which have grown into ongoing collaborations.

Most gatherings took place at aceartinc. (2nd Floor, 290 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg), with a few exceptions from time to time (i.e. Video Pool Media Arts Centre and Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art).

Thanks for your interest so far, and stay tuned for more exciting news!

      Hi Doreen!
      Oh, strange. Thanks for letting me know. It is embedded into the website, so I wonder, did you happen to click on the left and right arrows on the second row of text where it presently says August 2010? If you click the arrow pointing right, the page will switch to September, and all of the activities are contained within. When you click on an item in the calendar, a little box pops up with more information.
      I will try to look at the calendar on another computer to figure out what the problem might be. Can you tell me what operating system you are using? I would think Google calendar is designed to work across all platforms and browsers, but one never knows…
      Thanks again for mentioning this, and I hope my notes about the arrow buttons helps!

    Dear Ms. Milena Placentile,

    My name is Brian Tucker and I am a Research Assistant working under the direction of Dr. Reuben Rose-Redwood, an Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada. We are currently conducting research on the social significance of place naming, with a specific focus on sponsorship programs that allow for the purchasing of naming rights to buildings, transit stops, and other elements of public infrastructure.

    As you may know, in 2007, Winnipeg’s city council approved a measure that would allow for the selling off of naming rights to the city’s public infrastructure. As a result of this measure, the city of Winnipeg developed a program known as “Sponsor Winnipeg.” Dr. Rose-Redwood and I are specifically interested in assessing the political, economic, and cultural significance of this municipal program. Due to your interest in issues regarding Public Space, including your involvement with Showing Up, Speaking Out, you were selected to be a possible participant in our study.

    If you agree to take part in this study, you will be asked to participate in an audio-recorded interview session in which I will ask a series of questions, following an open-ended conversational format where you may respond and provide your insight on the topic we are researching. I anticipate the interview to last about 1 hour. If you wish to remain anonymous, then any recordings will be stored securely and only myself, along with the principal investigator (i.e., Dr. Rose-Redwood), will have access to the recordings. However, if you agree to be identified by name, then audio recordings may be used in public presentations, and you may be mentioned by name in the final products of the research.

    If you are interested in participating in this study, you may either email me back or contact me by phone at (250) 721-4647. Thank you very much for your time.
