artsScene’s national flagship event, boardLink, is back in Winnipeg for its fourth year! Thursday, October 5th, we will connect the city’s young professionals with vibrant arts and culture communities right in our own backyard.

The night will give you a chance to mix, mingle and match with local arts organizations and find out about volunteer board positions. This is great for someone who has never served on a board before or if you’re looking to make a switch to a new organization. Come down and join us for some art, fun, drinks, appetizers.

CaRaVaN at the Cube Summer Finale - Ft. Sun Gaze

September 18, 2017, 7:00pm - September 18, 2017, 11:00pm

CaRaVaN is an "Anything Goes" open mic. A mix of music, spoken word, comedy, magic, dance, storytelling, or anything else you can think up, you'll see a range of performances from experienced artists trying out new things to people taking the stage for the first time. All summer long, CaRaVaN has been taking place every Monday at the Cube stage in Old Market Square. For our last outdoor event of 2017, we're pulling out all the stops, and just like our debut, we've got a headlining act performing to end the night! The incredible Sun Gaze will play a full set from 10:15-11:00 PM. It's going to be an amazing night. Sign up for the open mic begins at 7 PM, with performances getting underway at around 7:30. Those signing up can perform up to 2 songs (musicians) or ~5 minutes (all others). For everyone's benefit, if you have a lot of additional equipment to set up, we recommend doing most of the set up on stage prior to the start of the show. Our series at Old Market Square wouldn't be possible without the generous support of our friends at the Exchange District Business Improvement Zone and our wonderful sponsor Dr. Roof ( CaRaVaN at the Cube happens rain or shine (those who've been by on rainy days know that the more intimate set-up under the stage still works nicely). While there is a lawn area and a few picnic tables, we encourage everyone to bring a blanket or chair to sit on, and to dress for the weather. The event is always free, but donations are appreciated and do go a long way in helping ensure we can keep doing CaRaVaN in awesome places like the Cube!

After 6 years with Artspace, Ian has decided to make retirement a full time thing as of today! We are sad to loose a colleague... but thrilled that Winnipeg gets more of his time. Let your passions continue to guide and inspire you Ian, or should we say DJ I-King.

We're sure to see you in the Exchange soon enough.
