No Change in the Weather takes some of the finest Newfoundland songs, and combines them with traditional sounds and instruments, memorable characters, and a conclusion that turns the province’s past on his head, all working together to create a once in a lifetime theatre experience. The show takes place in God’s Back Pocket, where family and friends have gathered together on a wet and foggy night for the wake of their beloved matriarch. It’s a time to revisit their past, settle old scores, and try to find a way home again. The family is divided by the history of Newfoundland and the troubles which have beset the province for the past fifty years. It’s time to right the wrongs, to laugh, argue, dance, sing, cry, and maybe even fix history. To look to the east and wait for the sun to shine through the clouds again. It’s time to wake the truth. www.nochangeintheweather.com

We are happy to announce the return of our much-celebrated Prairie Grid Dinner Series for fall 2019. Back for its third year, this year’s dinner series has an all-new chef lineup and will focus on the theme of innovation. Chefs Christine Sandford (Biera, Edmonton), Scott Redekopp (Yellow Door Bistro, Calgary), Chris Gama (Clementine, Winnipeg), Katelin Bland (Lulu Bar, Calgary) and Bryn Rawlyk (The Night Oven and Darkside Donuts, Saskatoon) will collaborate on a menu that highlights the technological evolution of culinary practices over the past century. Whether it’s experiencing a technique such as stone-grinding heritage grains and using wood-burning ovens for sourdough loaves or sous vide to caramelize rich dairy from Saskatchewan’s Sunnyside Creamery for a dessert, diners will have a delicious meal created with Prairie-grown ingredients while watching each course evolve in complexity. To further involve the chefs in the creative process, Eau Claire Distillery worked with them to create the botanical combination for our 2019 Prairie Grid Dinner Series gin. The new custom release’s botanical mix includes dandelion, haskap berries and rose hips, and will be available to purchase in limited quantities at select Alberta liquor stores starting August 29. Porter's Tonic has matched this new and unique gin with a tart and herbaceous sour cherry tonic syrup. As well, Saskatchewan's Living Sky Winery has created a custom sparkling rhubarb wine specifically for the dinner series. The fruit winery's first bubbly creation will make its debut in September. The Prairie Grid Dinner Series, which began in fall 2017, is Canada’s only travelling pop-up restaurant and celebrates all aspects of Prairie food and creative culture. By involving some of the region’s top chefs, artists, fashion designers and makers, the series organizer, Dan Clapson, is especially excited for the series’ third annual run.

You were gonna stand up to whatever stood in your way And knock your goals right off You were gonna write the book, write big cheques, prance around with solid conviction And faith in yourself You never for once imagined you would still be here: Worrying about who likes you and who doesn't Worrying about getting the approvals and validation of others Wondering if you sound "smart" Swaying around from one idea to the next because you are unsure Wait...just one sec! Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that EVERY-SINGLE-THING you desire is already present?? Did you ever stop to consider that EVERY DESIRE you have came to you because YOU ALREADY HAD IT?! Hold on….one sec What do you mean? DESIRE is proof of answered prayers NOT.EVERYBODY.HAS.THE.SAME.DESIRES!!! A Desire in your subconscious is PROOF that, it is yours already!

Orange Shirt Day honours the legacy of the 2013 St. Joseph Mission Residential School commemoration event, held in Williams Lake, B.C. It grew out of former student, Phyllis Webstad’s account of having her brand-new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school. Wearing an Orange Shirt is meant to recognize the harm done to Residential School Survivors, and show a commitment to the principle that Every Child Matters. The event will be attended by Residential School Survivors, Intergenerational Survivors, students from across the province, officials from all levels of government and traditional entertainment. Wear your 2019 Orange Shirt to show your support and demonstrate commitment to the work of Reconciliation and that Every Child Matters. The 2019 Orange Shirt logo features a design by Edmonton Grade 11 student, Farrah Ochiese, and is available for order online at http://safeandcaring.ca/orangeshirtprogram/orange-shirt-program-t-shirts/

Things are really ramping up for our upcoming Great Gatsby foundation; a 1920's inspired Jazz party in support of the Foundation for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship. If you made it out last you, then you know what a great time we had. The pictures from last year's event are still up at: https://www.fae.ngo/gallery This year's event is going to be on October 5th at the Calgary Petroleum Club. Be sure to get your tickets early! The first 50x tickets are at a reduced price. Tickets are available for the next couple weeks at https://www.fae.ngo/events The people who came out last year were amazing. We had so much fun mixing/mingling and building relationships with everyone. Its a really fun event that brings together the Business Community and builds awareness in a festive environment. The event is hosted in one of the nicest ballrooms in the city! Plus, we've lined up some awesome entertainment that will help to keep the vibe going for the evening. The best part about this event besides having an amazing time is all proceeds from the event will be going to towards the Foundation for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship to issue Scholarships to young budding entrepreneurs coming out of the Junior Achievement Program in Alberta.

The cottage she chooses has a mysterious past, and seems like the perfect inspiration for her writing. However, misplaced items, inexplicable events and whispers in the dark disrupt her solace, and have her questioning her sanity.

CIPHER BY ELLEN CLOSE & BRADEN GRIFFITHS. CO-PRODUCED WITH ARTS CLUB THEATRE COMPANY A body. A secret code. A conspiracy that will change their lives forever. March 21 - April 19, 2020 World Premiere In 1956, a man’s body is discovered on the coast of British Columbia. A secret code is found sewn into his clothing. For decades no investigation has revealed his identity, his killer, their motives or even their methods, and the cipher remains unsolved. Forensic toxicologist Grace Godard thinks her scientific approach is leading her close to an answer, closer than anyone has come before. But when she meets Aqeel, a young man with a personal stake in the mystery, their efforts to crack the case have consequences neither of them could have imagined.

“To me, fair friend, you never can be old, For as you were when first your eye I eyed, Such seems your beauty still.” What if Romeo and Juliet had lived? This is the question posed in this delicate and profound “remix” of the greatest love story ever told. The premise is simple – rather than taking their own lives, the young lovers have grown old together, their dazzling love undimmed, to endure a tragedy of a different sort. Shakespeare’s timeless poetry creates a new, deeply romantic and powerful play, and a strikingly different love story. A TENDER THING is co-produced with The Shakespeare Company.
