FRONTlines - Indigenous-Led Development in Downtown Winnipeg Thursday, April 27, 7:00PM at Winnipeg Free Press Cafe (237 McDermot Avenue).
Storefront Manitoba (SfMB) and BEA: Prairies presents FRONTlines return to the Winnipeg Free Press Cafe. This Frontlines session will focus on recent and upcoming Indigenous-Led Development Projects downtown, celebrating current momentum and excitement, and the opportunity for this to set a precedent moving forward.
The conversation will focus on questions like: What are the factors that will determine the success of these projects? What needs to change so that we can see more Indigenous-led development? Which other vacant sites downtown would you like to see developed? What would you like to see included in the city’s new Downtown Plan?
The discussion will be moderated by CBC’s Lenard Monkman. Panelists are Reanna Merasty of Number TEN Architectural Group, Michael Robertson of Cibinel Architecture, and Rylee Nepinak, co-founder of Sabe Peace Walkers, and Anishiative.
