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
