[ 1 PM ] @ Emma Goldman Center

// RAD-PoC 4ever! (w/ shimby)
Navigating alternative spaces in Winnipeg can often mean isolation for folks of color at events, in spaces or as part of collectives and a burden of representation can exist (intentionally or unintentionally). No matter how it manifests, it is almost always hella exhausting. This workshop will be an introduction to each other in an intentional space where folks can get a chance to share how they take care of themselves through these realities. The purpose of the workshop will be to celebrate our experiences and build community while sharing experiences with navigating spaces while being a person of color.
[ 1 PM ] @NaturalCycle

// Building Class Struggle on the Prairies (w/ I.W.W. & Prairie Struggle)
How do you end poverty and injustice? How do you stop war and oppression? How do you save the planet from destruction? How do you stop the assholes at the top trying to rob, imprison and kill you? Well, you’re not going to do it by yourself. You need a movement; a mass movement of people committed to revolutionary change.
[ 3 PM ] @ Rudolf Rocker

// Fermentation Sensation! (w/ Kandice & Dandy)
Learn the why?s and how?s of fermenting delicious probiotics! including a brief history and some healthy logic behind your favorite ferments. We will discuss and share ferment cultures of kombucha, non-dairy kefir, whey and sourdough starters, so bring your own container/jar.
[ 3 PM ] @ Canadian Dimension Office

// Support in Conflict: A DIY Primer (w/ Karen Ridd)
Cooperatives, collectives and communities are no strangers to conflict, nor to resolving them. Resolving conflicts in small communities does, though, bring particular challenges — when the “opponents” are also our friends and colleagues, how can we respond most effectively? This interactive workshop will cover some key conflict resolution tools and skills, and a model for being a helpful third party.

[ 1 PM ] @ Rudolf Rocker

// Intro to Electronics & Soldering (w/ Graham)

[ 1 PM ] @ Canadian Dimension Office

// An Open Discussion on Consent (w/ Celeste)
This workshop will be an open dialogue about consent in romantic or sexual situations; we’ll talk about real experiences, ideals, problems, hypothetical situations, consent at its best and consent gone wrong, and whatever else comes up and seems relevant. The facilitator hopes to someday write a sexy choose-your-own-adventure-book that will be both erotic fiction and an educational tool about the consequences of good and bad consent, and she hopes that this workshop will help her broaden the range of experiences and situations that could be included in that book.
[ 1 PM ] @ Emma Goldman Center

// Indians Wear Red: Colonialism, Resistance and Aboriginal Street Gangs (w/ Elizabeth Comack, Lawrie Deane, Larry Morrissette & Jim Silver)

With the advent of Aboriginal street gangs, such as Indian Posse, Manitoba Warriors, and Native Syndicate, Winnipeg garnered a reputation as “gang capital of Canada.” Yet beyond the stereotypes, little is known about these gangs and the conditions that have produced them. Drawing upon extensive interviews with Aboriginal street gang members, as well as with Aboriginal women and elders, “Indians Wear Red” locates Aboriginal street gangs as a form of resistance to colonialism. The four authors will be present to discuss their book, as well as engage with the audience on strategies of decolonization.
[ 3 PM ] @ Rudolf Rocker

// Guitar Tech & Intonation (w/ Garrett)
Learn how to adjust, repair and fine-tune your acoustic or electric guitar or bass from headstock to tailpiece so it will look, sound, feel and play the way you want. Information pamphlets will be provided to take home, so there is no need to bring your own guitars or tools.
[ 3 PM ] @ Canadian Dimension Office

// Alternative Travel (w/ Quincy & Geoff)
Traveling is most enriching when you get to exchange generosity with strangers and discover new ways of living in transit not (yet) stifled by travel companies. Learn how and why to use hitchhiking, sailboat crewing, bike-touring, CouchSurfing/BeWelcome/NomadBase, WWOOFing, and how to find freely available food, shelter and friendship around the world
.
[ 3 PM ] @ Emma Goldman Center

// BIY: An Introduction to Home Brewing (w/ Rae & Nolan)
