Winnipeg Design Festival 2016.
Upper Fort Garry Tour.
Explore the stories behind Winnipeg’s trading exchange through the planning, materials and details of the Upper Fort Garry Provincial Heritage Park.
Take a walk through this park with two landscape architects who will teach about the history of the site and the design decisions that respond in a unique way to the history of Winnipeg. Experience how landscape architecture allows us to interact with history.
Forts on Fort.
Join this family-focused event at the recently completed Upper Fort Garry Heritage Park. Re-imagine history as you build new forts on Winnipeg’s old forts. Come and take part in what is going to be Winnipeg’s most memorable cardboard box fort-making event!
Letter Peddler Press:
All are invited to Letter Peddler Press, a mobile printshop from Martha Street Studio where you can create your own custom postcard of Winnipeg! Selecting from a collection of Winnipeg icons, you can choose which Winnipeg landmarks to feature. Be sure to make two so you can keep one and mail another to a friend!
Organized by Sean McLachlan and Francesca Carella Arfinengo
