2014 Events: Winnipeg: This City in Seven Years

March 23
2:00 pm

This City in Seven Years examines what changes are coming to our country’s urban spaces and invites thinkers to put forward their vision of our changing landscapes. One of Winnipeg’s greatest assets is its wealth of beautiful, historic buildings downtown. When it comes to the revitalization of Winnipeg’s downtown, what is to be done with those old treasures?

Spur invites speakers with a range of perspectives, including Brent Bellamy (Winnipeg Free Press architecture and urban design columnist), Mariane Cerilli, Sotirios Kotoulas (architecture critic and lecturer, project designer), Dr. Jaqueline McLeod Rogers (Professor, University of Winnipeg), Scott Stephanson (Vice-President of Longboat Development Corporation), and Bill Millar (pastor, Knox United Church), to individually present their vision in a seven-minute pitch. Together with moderator Ismaila Alfa (host of CBC’s Up to Speed), they will explore the different ways we can transform from old to new.
