Jane’s Walk in Inglewood on Saturday May 4

April 18th, 2013

Andree Iffrig sends the following invitation:

Join us for a Jane’s Walk in Inglewood on Sat. May 4 from 10 am to noon.

Our theme is “What if we told stories about building community and everybody came?”

The walk will visit some of the places in Inglewood where history on the urban design front is being made by ordinary citizens doing extraordinary things to protect and preserve the diverse socio-economic character, history and environmental wellbeing of the ‘hood. Expect to hear some stories!

Meeting spot: 10 am at the Esker Foundation, 1011 9 Ave SE, Calgary. We’ll meet outside if the weather is fine, inside the lobby if it’s cold or rainy. Bite Groceteria is supplying hot coffee and tea to fortify everyone for the walk through the ‘hood.

Teen Group in Inglewood and Ramsay

February 28th, 2013

We received this note from Inglewood’s Cheryl Myers:

A few Inglewood residents got together to discuss a Teen Club. The idea is Inglewood and Ramsay teens have a night at the Skate Shack designated just for teens. It would be open for anyone living in either of these communities that are in grades 7 to grade 12. We spoke with the Inglewood Board of Directors and Hall Manager who got behind this idea, and will make space and some funds (OK the word funds might be stretching it) available for this club on Saturday nights.

 

Back in the 1990’s there was a really active group of teens in Inglewood. Dave Marshall and Bob Coburn were just two of the adults that helped to make this happen. During this time the teens ran the concession at the shack as a way to fund their group and did talent nights and bottle drives to help raise funds. Another… tradition in Inglewood was Monica Reid’s work in having the youth support the haunted house event at the Halloween Party.

 

So before we go any further, we need to talk with you guys, “The Teens”. There is no sense in a bunch of adults thinking this is a great idea if the teens don’t. As well, it isn’t an adult night, it will be a teen night, so we need teens to help build and develop what this club will be. The idea is that the Teen Club will be a year round event, not just when the ice is on.

 

If you are in grades 7 to grade 12, living in Inglewood or Ramsay, then please join us on Saturday March 2 at 7 pm at the Inglewood Skate Shack to share your ideas and suggestions that will shape the Teen Club and make it yours!

 

If you need more incentive, we will have free pizza and pop.

 

If you have questions, please call Suzanne 403.265.4655 or Cheryl 403.208.8397

Calgary Folk Festival Hall Unleashed on January 26

January 7th, 2013

From the Calgary Folk Festival:

The Calgary Folk Music Festival welcomes 2013 with a bang: the grand opening of Festival Hall on January 26, 2013 in the heart of Inglewood, 1215 10 Ave. SE. From 2:00 – 11:00 pm, we toast this new arts, performance and music space with live music and DJs on three floors.

 

After having to continually move the Festival’s office, we heeded the call to keep the Festival vibe going year-round and provide a quality, accessible venue that enhances Calgary’s arts community. Eight years in the making, Festival Hall now acts as the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s brand-new home for our staff and 1600 volunteers. It is a state-of-the-art multi-media, 180-seat flexible performance space that will host local, Canadian and international artists from a wide array of artistic disciplines. Designed by award-winning Vancouver-based Peter Cardew Architects, Festival Hall includes geo-thermal passive heating and cooling systems, reclaimed materials and significant, creative architectural details, such as the timbered ceiling.

 

Festival Hall Unleashed is a free-of-charge, grassroots, community celebration using the annual Calgary Folk Music Festival at Prince’s Island Park as our model with our unique collaborative sessions as the festivities’ centerpiece. The sessions – curated by local artists Lorrie Matheson, Paul van Kampen, Kenna Burima & Steve Fletcher, Allen Baekeland, and Brent Cooper – will operate consecutively through the day. There, over 35 of Calgary’s finest roots, folk, indie and blues artists will share songs and stories. CJSW, CKUA, CJSW and up!97.7 FM DJs will create a chill lounge atmosphere in the upstairs offices. In conjunction with the Festival’s 33 1/3 anniversary, they’ll spin old school: 33 1/3 records from theirs and the audiences’ collections. Food trucks sustain the audience while the artists’ music fills their ears.

 

Festival Hall Unleashed will be a veritable festival-in-a-box for all Calgarians to celebrate the opening of this one-of-a-kind new performance space.
