TIMERAISER 150 CALGARY – September 28, 2017

Bid time. Do good. Get art!

Timeraiser is the party for social good. Calgary artists are paid market value for their art and attendees bid volunteer hours on these works while helping out the causes they care about.

On top of all that, Timeraiser is a PARTY!  Timeraiser pulls out all the stops with great entertainment from Astral Swans, live art by Mandy Stobo, food trucks and drinks. Truly a night to celebrate Calgary’s art, culture and community!

Time: 7:30pm – 10pm
Location: ARTS COMMONS

TRIBAL JUSTICE – September 28, 2017

Glenbow is pleased to welcome back award winning filmmaker Anne Makepeace for the Western Canadian premier of Tribal Justice.

The film focuses on the efforts of two indigenous judges Abby Abinanti and Claudette White, who use traditional concepts of justice to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety in their communities, and create a positive environment for youth. These models of restorative are proving effective in addressing the root of crime, and courts across America are taking notice. Following the film Anne Makepeace will be in conversation with Elder and Piikani Traditionalist, Jerry Potts.

Admission $10/Members $8
