Symphony in the City will present something for everyone in the Capital Region: a multimedia adventure with Disney in Concert alongside monumental classical works. This event will be a chance for families to gather in a shared community experience in both Churchill Square and Kinsmen Park, to celebrate our city’s summer festival season with an explosive finale.This year, the High Level Bridge will be fitted with 60,000 LED lights. We’re celebrating this scenic addition to the river valley with a performance that will tie in the visual of this dynamically lit Edmonton landmark with the spectacular sounds of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Edmonton’s favourite celtic-rooted family, The McDades. Join us for a one-time outdoor concert experience, capped off with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture!

Open Government Tour 2014
Wed, Sep 3 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

The Open Government TourChanging Canada by exploring it Here is an article by William Wolfe-Wylie that best describes the tour and its intent :-) DOORS OPEN: 6 pm EVENT BEGINS: 6:30 pm Local Guests – so far:Tim Querengesser – The Edmonton Wayfinding ProjectDavid Rauch – Open EdmontonDana DiTomaso – Kick Point / CBC Edmonton AMMark Diner – Gov’t of AlbertaCory Segin – Public Engagement, City of EdmontonA representative from the City of Edmonton’s Open Data Portal WHAT ARE OPEN GOVERNMENT AND OPEN DATA?They are movements that are bringing about a massively disruptive cultural change by taking advantage of 21st century technology and creating a more transparent, accountable, and engaging relationship between people and their government. It is changing the traditional perspective that Civic Engagement is simply voting once every four years or sitting in dusty church basements listening to someone drone on about wading pools! WHO THIS EVENING IS GEARED FORThis evening is dedicated to introducing Open Government & Open Data to those people who have flirted with the subject matter, but are not fully aware of what it is.Perhaps you saw a headline with the term or heard someone mention it in passing. Maybe you want to become more civically engaged but don’t know where to start. In either of those cases, The Open Government Tour will tell you the stories behind terms; Demonstrate the technology that is changing the culture; And introduce you to the people that are making it happen. That’s why we’re trying out a “Buddy System” for these events. Basically, if you’re well-versed in Open Gov & Data we ask that you bring someone that hasn’t had the opportunity to be fully introduced :-)HOW THE EVENING WILL UNFOLDSince Open Government & Open Data are all about doing things differently, I can promise you the following: This event won’t just be 2.5 hour’s worth of people talking to Powerpoints. As a matter of fact, there won’t be any Powerpoint presentations at all.Instead, the events will feature guests from the government, technology, industry, and not-for-profit sector talking like real human beings about Open Governmnent, Open Data, and Open Source. The style is more “conversational” in nature and not only involves the guests, but the audience in an engaging discussion about our current society.

Totem Pole Journey Against Fossil Fuels
Fri, Sep 5 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join us for a media event to welcome members of the Lummi Nation and the Tseil Waututh Nation, at one of their last stops before arriving at their final destination in Beaver Lake, Alberta.In August and September 2014, the Lummi Nation’s House of Tears Carvers, who have created a tradition of carving and delivering totem poles to areas struck by disaster or otherwise in need of hope, healing and protection, will deliver an 20-foot red cedar totem pole, to the sacred territory of the Beaver Lake Cree First Nation in Alberta in the tar sands. The totem pole will travel 10,000 Kms over three weeks through South Dakota, Montana, Washington, BC and Alberta, stopping in communities affected by coal, tar sands, Bakken oil extraction, shipment and storage.The goals of the journey are to raise public awareness of our shared responsibility to protect the land, the waters and the peoples and to discuss the environmental issues caused by the massive fossil fuel extraction, transport and storage proposals in the Pacific Northwest. It will help unify the work of First Nations, tribes, environmental organizations and residents and gather enough voices to make a critical mass of concerned citizens, Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike, that cannot be ignored. The journey is about sharing Indigenous traditional values and knowledge and creating a cross-cultural dialogue with the broader community about what’s at stake with fossil fuel extraction, export, and consumption. At free community events, all will be invited to experience and help carry the message by seeing and touching this indigenous, activist art form. The totem speaks to the heart of the matter and the moral conscience of culturally diverse communities.2014 Totem Pole Journey:Aug-17 • Lummi Nation WAAug-21-22 • Yankton Sioux SDAug-25 • Billings MTAug-26 • Spokane WA (St. Johns Cathedral)Aug-27 • Yakama NationAug-28 • Olympia WAAug-29 • Seattle WA (St. Marks Cathedral)Aug-29 • Friday Harbour (San Juan Islands)Aug-30 • Victoria BC (Vancouver Island, Canada)Aug 31 • Vancouver BCSept-1 • Tsleil Waututh First NationSept-2 • Merritt, Shackan NationSept-3 • Calgary, AlbertaSept-5 • Edmonton, AlbertaSept-6 • Beaver Lake Cree (Final Destination)Sept-8 • Arrive back at Lummi Nation

Blind Spot Edmonton Launch at the Black Dog!
Fri, Sep 5 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join NeWest Press’ newest author Laurence Miall as he launches his first novel BLIND SPOT at the Black Dog on September 5th! Laurence will be joined by another Edmonton writer, 2014 Trade Fiction Book Award winner Thea Bowering, for a fun evening of books and beers.ABOUT THE BOOK: When his parents’ car is hit by a train, Luke, a failed actor, returns to his Edmonton hometown to attend their funeral, wrap up their affairs, and prepare their house to be sold off. But while all others around him grieve, Luke remains detached, striking up a relationship with a woman in a neighbouring house… and stumbling across evidence that his mother may have engaged in a longstanding extramarital affair herself.In Blind Spot, debut novelist Laurence Miall crafts an unforgettable literary antihero, a man disconnected from the pain of those around him, yet blind to his own faults. With his clean, forceful language and his familiarity with the darker corners of the male psyche, Miall emerges as a gripping storyteller in the tradition of Tobias Wolff and Andre Dubus III.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Laurence Miall is a Montreal-based writer who spent his childhood in England before emigrating to Edmonton at the age of 14. Miall has contributed to The Edmonton Journal and his short stories have been finalists in the Summer Literary Awards contest and Glimmer Train’s Short Story Award for New Writers. His first novel, Blind Spot, will be published by NeWest Press in Fall 2014.

Check our website for speaker details.In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.

Park(ing) Day
Fri, Sep 19 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Drawing Room presents Edmonton’s first annual Park(ing) Day! Parking stalls along 101A Ave and 97 Street will be transformed into temporary art installations, urban interventions or performance spaces. The event is based on an open-source project from San Francisco-based architecture firm, ReBar. It has become an annual, worldwide event that invites city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good. In recent years, participants have built interventions ranging from free health clinics, urban farming and ecology demonstrations, political seminars, art installations, free bike repair shops and even a wedding ceremony! Although temporary, PARK(ing) Day has inspired direct participation in the civic processes that permanently alter the urban landscape. PARK(ing) Day not only highlights the versatility of public spaces, but also showcases a broad range of artists and encourages people to see the city differently.The aim of the project is to explore the public/private divide in our communities and ask the question, “Who owns public space and how can the public manipulate these areas through their own creative skills?”We are accepting submission for this project until September 5.See http://drawingroomedmonton.com/blog/parking-day for more info.

I’ll have snacks and coffee on hand, and signs directing you to the correct room (nobody likes to be wandering around a building like an idiot).

Sat, Sep 27 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

WHY HTML & CSS?If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone – even non-programmers – can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser! The Ladies Learning Code Introduction to HTML & CSS workshop is designed to be a hands- on experience. During the session, you’ll build something like this and learn the following: – Basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages- The building blocks of how HTML and CSS work together to create richer online experiences- How to create a rich website with images, video, and a CSS-defined layout- What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will) We have just revamped our HTML & CSS content and are excited to be running a new and improved workshop. You can read more about that here!This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)

Mastering Change in a Constantly Changing World
Fri, Oct 3 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPThe one constant that today’s managers know is predictable is continuous change. Change in organizations is experienced at three different levels, and those in “middle management” are frequently caught in the proverbial middle; required to initiate or implement changes from the top that they may not necessarily understand or support, but are never the less required to make happen.Additionally, there are three different types of change that organizations experiences, and each is attended by its own set of challenges and complications. Managers must not only develop a personal change-hardiness, but also understand the dynamics of change, its four phases, and how to effectively manage its process with their direct reports.Participants will learn the impact that change has on individuals, work groups and organizations, and the challenges it creates in the workplace. They will develop the skills to deal with resistance, indifference and to effectively lead the transition in their groups and teams.ABOUT THE SPEAKERDr. Don Carmont has helped dozens of organizations in their change processes, including major global consulting firms, small manufacturers, and financial institutions.WHEN & WHEREOctober 3, 20149:00 am – 4:00 pm Productivity Alberta301, 10110 – 104 StreetCOST  + GST per ticketREFUNDSRefunds are not permitted.
