  • A friend recently brought to my attention the financial workshops Edmonton Arts Council is presenting – it looks like great information and the workshops are priced affordably.
  • Have you heard of SpaceFinder Alberta? It’s a free tool that matches people looking to rent space for creative practice and organizations with space to rent. Sounds like a win-win!
  • The Edmonton Street Performers Festival (July 8 – 17) is looking for volunteers. Festival volunteers get some sweet perks in exchange for 20 hours of volunteerism during the festival.
