We Should Know Each Other #100 - Participant GroupsSubmitted by Deeter Schurig on Tue, 09/18/2012 - 15:27
'We Should Know Each Other' is a crossroad of communities. It invites people to stretch the limits of their social circles and enhance their thinking with a diversity of new ideas and perspectives. It provides a safe and welcoming space for viewpoints to collide in unexpected ways, and for creative sparks to fly.
The landmark 100th edition of ‘We Should Know Each Other’ will take place at King Edward School, a 100-year-old building that will soon become Arts Hub and Incubator courtesy cSPACE Projects. With a mission to connect people, place and ideas to ignite creativity, community, collaboration and change, King Edward School is the perfect location for this community extravaganza!
The weekend will feature dozens of participating groups, animating the King Edward School with a vibrant range of activities, including live music, local history, pop-up stores, robotic furniture, poetry, politics, slow dances, workshops, food trucks, civic engagement and much, MUCH more.
Come and go as you like, all weekend long! We'll be posting a schedule of events VERY soon, so stay tuned. Oh, and the admission to WSKEO #100 is... FREE!
Join us for a vibrant weekend of community and excitement, alongside hundreds of amazing Calgarians! After all: we should know each other.
