Pride Winnipeg 2017

Thousands attend the Pride Winnipeg Festival to celebrate our many victories and our diverse community, and to remember that there is so much to be proud of and thankful for. Pride Winnipeg has been celebrated annually since 1987, and has evolved from a one-day event into a 10-day festival filled with pride, confidence, fun, color, music, laughter, optimism, and activism.

Winnipeg Pride is the Pride of the Prairies – one of the largest celebration of LGBTTQ culture between Toronto and Vancouver. We invite everyone from far and wide to join our welcoming community and celebrate Pride in Winnipeg – the heart of the continent! -Pride Winnipeg

 

 

SpurFest Winnipeg 2017

Spur is Canada’s first national festival of politics, art, and ideas. I had the opportunity to host the Risk+ Performance First Friday Night. Spur is produced by Diaspora Dialogues and the Literary Review of Canada.

 

Occasional guest host on ckuw 95.9 Fm’s Raw Colours, hosted and created by Alexa Potashnik  & Hazim Ismail. 

The aim of Raw Colours is to provide a platform for racialized and marginalized voices, to empower people of colour, and facilitate discussions on intersections and identities. Another goal is to wake people up from inauthentic perspectives with firsthand experience of oppression. Every topic and theme centers around marginalized voices and how to best empower and mobilize the communities.

 

Black Space Winnipeg Speaker. Black Space Winnipeg is founded by members of Winnipeg’s Black community, Black Space Winnipeg is a grassroots, community organization that fosters organic dialogue about everyday experiences on being black, spreading perspectives of Afrocentrism, and Pro-Black conversation. Black Space Winnipeg creates safe spaces for people of color through hosting community events, panel discussions, and workshops. Black Space Winnipeg challenges anti-Black racism within the city and pushes towards inclusivity across all sectors in Winnipeg for Black people.
