Wed, Apr 1 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Tickets: http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/green-drinks-greening-out-your-closet-tickets-16009596133?aff=es2With spring around the corner; we thought we would lend a helping hand to truly get that closet in shape! We’ll be diving into how to green your clothing, minimize stuff and maximize your enjoyment, and choose products that a better for you and the environment. Plus, you get to do this over drinks, with Edmonton’s finest. Join us at this exciting spring Green Drinks and discover how to take spring cleaning to the next (and much more sustainable) level!WHAT IS GREEN DRINKS? Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network. These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along.

Edmonton is a pretty lucky town. Most of the people who book shows in this city would rather help each other out and be pals than compete with each other. To prove that, this will be the first in a series of shows where each promoter picks a band they love and give them the chance to play a big stage to a hopefully big crowd.

Cash Mob High Street
Sat, Apr 4 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Cash Mob Edmonton is settings its sights on High Street businesses ailing amid the 102 Ave. bridge closure. On April 4th at 12pm, engaged Edmontonians are encouraged to visit High Street and take part in our biggest Cash Mob event ever. With the bridge closed indefinitely, businesses in the area aren’t getting the same traffic as usual. That’s why Cash Mob Edmonton decided to hit the whole area, rather than just one business. Shops in the mostly locally-owned district report a noticeable drop in traffic coming through the doors.Businesses will offer discounts, a wine tasting and gift cards to thank Cash Mobbers for their support. It’s suggested participants bring , a tote bag and as many people as they can.A little cash and a lot of people goes a long way. Help us ensure a prosperous local economy for the good of everyone.

But the way we communicate is changing and the process of telling a story has become much more complex. Join a discussion of how cultural shifts, technological advances and the growing desire for authenticity, immediacy and accuracy across all media will influence future content consumption and the nature of communication. Connect with creative professionals who are exploring new ways to engage in this environment and see how design thinking continues to influence audiences through the power of narrative.Panelists:Farah Assir, UX Designer at The New York TimesFarah is a UX designer living in Brooklyn who came to New York City from Beirut with bright eyes and no specific plan.

Open Hardware Meetup
Thu, Apr 9 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Open Hardware Meetup is a place where all kinds of people can share an interest in the intersection of hardware, software, connectivity, and user experience. When combined, these elements create a new art which blends the lines of beauty and technology.Even as computing devices have become more powerful, the underlying technology is now more and more available for everyone. With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form.

Lucia di Lammermoor
Sat, Apr 18 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Forbidden love, a family rivalry and the death of two lovers – echoes of Romeo and Juliet are found in Donizetti’s haunting opera Lucia di Lammermoor. Making her company and role debut, Canadian soprano Simone Osborne as Lucia exposes the hard and dark edges of beauty, in an opera that hasn’t been seen in Edmonton in nearly 20 years.Forced into a loveless marriage by her domineering brother, desperation consumes Lucia’s heart and mind, leading her to commit a chilling murder on her wedding night. What follows is the most spectacular mad scene in all of opera, featuring the bel canto artistry of Donizetti’s hauntingly beautiful music.Set on the gothic Scottish moors, Brian Deedrick directs this harrowing psychological thriller based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, with lighting design by David Fraser.

Downtown Bike Route Public Workshop
Tue, Apr 21 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

http://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/cycling_walking/downtown-bike-route.aspxThe public is invited a public meeting where the design plans for 102 Avenue bike route will be presented.Formal presentations will take place at 5pm and 7pm followed by a question and answer period. This is an opportunity for Edmontonians to learn more about the proposed protected bike lanes and to provide feedback to the City.The City of Edmonton has revealed the proposed design of the two bike routes planned for 83 and 102 Avenues after engaging citizens in the What the B*ke conversation since May 2014.“During our year-long consultation process we’ve consistently heard from people who drive and cycle that they would prefer to see the City build protected bike lanes,” said Tyler Golly, General Supervisor of Sustainable Transportation. “People perceive protected bike lanes as the safest type of cycling infrastructure for the 83 Avenue and 102 Avenue routes that run through Strathcona and downtown.”A protected bike lane, otherwise known as a cycle track, is a bike lane that is physically separated from motor vehicle traffic, parked cars and sidewalks. It minimizes conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians and drivers. The separation can be formed by installing barriers, bollards or by raising the bike lane higher than the road surface.The 83 Avenue bike route runs between Mill Creek Ravine and 111 Street, leading to major destinations points such as the University of Alberta, the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market and the Strathcona Business District.The 102 Avenue bike route runs between 96 Street and 136 Street, connecting the communities of Downtown, Oliver and Glenora.“The planning team has worked with individuals and groups to come up with creative solutions to design challenges,” said Golly. “For instance, we worked closely with stakeholders in Strathcona to maintain important drop-off zones, motor vehicle parking and traffic calming measures.”

Strathcona Bike Route Public Workshop
Thu, Apr 23 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

http://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/cycling_walking/old-strathcona-bike-routes.aspxThe public is invited a public meeting where the design plans for 83 Avenue bike route will be presented.Formal presentations will take place at 5pm and 7pm followed by a question and answer period. This is an opportunity for Edmontonians to learn more about the proposed protected bike lanes and to provide feedback to the City.The City of Edmonton has revealed the proposed design of the two bike routes planned for 83 and 102 Avenues after engaging citizens in the What the B*ke conversation since May 2014.“During our year-long consultation process we’ve consistently heard from people who drive and cycle that they would prefer to see the City build protected bike lanes,” said Tyler Golly, General Supervisor of Sustainable Transportation. “People perceive protected bike lanes as the safest type of cycling infrastructure for the 83 Avenue and 102 Avenue routes that run through Strathcona and downtown.”A protected bike lane, otherwise known as a cycle track, is a bike lane that is physically separated from motor vehicle traffic, parked cars and sidewalks. It minimizes conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians and drivers. The separation can be formed by installing barriers, bollards or by raising the bike lane higher than the road surface.The 83 Avenue bike route runs between Mill Creek Ravine and 111 Street, leading to major destinations points such as the University of Alberta, the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market and the Strathcona Business District.The 102 Avenue bike route runs between 96 Street and 136 Street, connecting the communities of Downtown, Oliver and Glenora.“The planning team has worked with individuals and groups to come up with creative solutions to design challenges,” said Golly. “For instance, we worked closely with stakeholders in Strathcona to maintain important drop-off zones, motor vehicle parking and traffic calming measures.”

Lucia di Lammermoor
Thu, Apr 23 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Forbidden love, a family rivalry and the death of two lovers – echoes of Romeo and Juliet are found in Donizetti’s haunting opera Lucia di Lammermoor. Making her company and role debut, Canadian soprano Simone Osborne as Lucia exposes the hard and dark edges of beauty, in an opera that hasn’t been seen in Edmonton in nearly 20 years.Forced into a loveless marriage by her domineering brother, desperation consumes Lucia’s heart and mind, leading her to commit a chilling murder on her wedding night. What follows is the most spectacular mad scene in all of opera, featuring the bel canto artistry of Donizetti’s hauntingly beautiful music.Set on the gothic Scottish moors, Brian Deedrick directs this harrowing psychological thriller based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, with lighting design by David Fraser.

Rally for the Public Good
Sat, May 2 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Advocacy organizations, unions and other groups are organizing a rally on May 2nd at 1:00 PM on the steps of the Alberta Legislature to call on Albertans to vote for the public good. The rally will highlight how the proposed cuts to health care, education, post-secondary, human services, and seniors care will hurt Albertans. People are angry that instead of fixing the province’s revenue problems fairly, the PC government is planning to cut vital public services to families and increase user fees. Elections belong to the people and Albertans will be the ones to decide what their Alberta will look like. Voting matters.
