Attention for 18-31 years old- If you are interested to apply for Next Up Winnipeg... Deadline is by September 22nd!!

CCEDNet Manitoba

Apply to Next Up Winnipeg
for Ages 18-32

NEXT UP WINNIPEG APPLICATIONS ARE DUE SEPTEMBER 22

Next Up was created by a community of people who wanted to help emerging leaders (that’s you!) develop new and better skills, smarts and ideas. Three years ago, CCEDNet and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives - Manitoba brought this innovative program to Winnipeg and we can't wait to get started with our 4th Next Up cohort.

The program is intense. Over 6.5 months, we’ll dive into a number of topics and disciplines, combining theory, practice, deep thinking, and hard skills. We’ll look at how change is made in society. We’ll meet some of the most innovative change-makers in Manitoba — from the non-profit, labour, business and public sectors and from Indigenous, settler and newcomer communities—who are working for a better world.
Do you wonder what the future holds for our world? Are you concerned about things like climate change, poverty, public health and education, housing and government policy? Do you believe that global and local issues are connected? Do you feel that our economic system is focused on profit at the expense of people and the planet? Do you believe it is possible for us, as communities, to do things differently at home and abroad, to eradicate poverty, to deal with conflict peacefully, to rise to the climate challenge fairly, and to ensure everyone has access to good public health and education services?
If you answered yes to many of the questions above, this program may be for you.

Apply to Next Up Winnipeg

Next Up has a number lenses through which we explore social change.  Lenses include decolonization, anti-oppression and equity. Climate Justice is a key lens for the program as Climate Change is one of the core challenges of our time.  The lenses are used as a grounding point - not every session is about the lenses. The lenses inform how we think about solutions and our approach to social change.

Who should apply? You are:

  • Aged 18–32
  • Passionate about changing the way the world works, and committed to being active at the centre of social change
  • Certain that there are better ways for us to take care of each other and the planet
  • Willing to take a risk, join a team, and learn more about yourself
  • What level of commitment is required from me, and when?
  • By joining Next Up you’re committing yourself to an extraordinarily rigorous and exciting program. The program runs from Oct. to May, 2018 and during that time you will:
  • Attend one week-day evening session 6 - 9 pm per week
  • Attend one day-long weekend session per month (Generally Saturdays from 10-4pm)

Winnipeg Art Council will have Mass Appeal this year again!

MASS APPEAL IS BACK!
  Our participatory concert series returns to Winnipeg this September.
(Winnipeg, MB) – The Winnipeg Arts Council is pleased to announce that Mass Appeal will be back this September.  Mass Appeal is a series of concerts performed by, and for, the public.  Participation in Mass Appeal is free to anyone who wants to take part either as a performer or an audience member. Mass Appeal concerts are free to attend, are performed by amateur and professional musicians of all skill levels, feature a wide variety of music, and take place in all kinds of publicly accessible spaces.
Each Mass Appeal event is a 30-minute concert featuring a different type of musical instrument, performed under the guidance of a Music Director who has prepared a repertoire suitable for players of all ages and skill levels. Anyone interested in being a part of the ensemble can download the music from www.massappealwinnipeg.ca.  Musicians practice the songs on their own and then show up at the scheduled time and place for a group rehearsal followed by the performance.  The website contains tips, links, videos, and sound files for the songs to be performed, and the music selections range from very easy to more challenging so that there is something for everyone.
Last year, at our inaugural Mass Appeal, we were delighted with the turnout and enthusiasm from Winnipeggers who sang, strummed, played and even danced in the rain.
Mass Appeal begins with accordions on Thursday, September 7, Fiddles on Saturday, September 9th, horns on Thursday, September 14, ukuleles on Saturday, September 16 and wrapping everything up with a choral concert on September 21.  Each event will have a one-hour rehearsal with the musical director and the entire ensemble followed by a 30-minute concert. Anyone is welcome to participate as a musician or as an enthusiastic audience member. On September 21, ASL-English Interpretation will be provided.

“Our goal with Mass Appeal is to celebrate community and to animate the city through music,” says Executive Director Carol A. Phillips.  “As city builders, the Winnipeg Arts Council believes strongly that the arts have a tremendous role to play in developing our quality of life.  And paramount to that is developing programs and partnerships that provide the public with access to artistic experiences.  With Mass Appeal, everyone can do that.”

Anyone wishing to participate in Mass Appeal can visit www.winnipegarts.ca to find out more. 
About the Winnipeg Arts Council: The Winnipeg Arts Council Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation with charitable status, charged by the City of Winnipeg to distribute funding to arts organizations and artists, to manage the City’s Public Art Policy, and to champion the development of the arts for the people of Winnipeg.
