My City’s Still Breathing…revisited

The Year of Urban Ideas is about discussing and discovering the connection between the arts and the city. We want to continue the conversation that took place when Winnipeg was celebrating its year as Cultural Capital of Canada and the Winnipeg Arts Council hosted My City’s Still Breathing, a four-day symposium all about art, artists, and city-building. We were lucky to have such a collection of speakers together in one place, but even luckier that the whole thing was archived and still available on line!

All of the symposium presentations were recorded and can be found at or just click on the image above.  In addition to downloadable podcasts, many were turned into videos which can be viewed direcly in your browser and contain the visuals that each speaker brought. In gearing up for the Urban Idea Exchange, we thought it would be useful to direct people back to those conversations and presentations. Dig in!
