Showing Up, Speaking Out offered Winnipeggers unique opportunities to speak out on civic issues by collaborating with local and visiting artists to co-create temporary art works in public spaces about important topics such as a housing and poverty, accessibility, and diversity.

Participating artists included: Inge Hoonte (Netherlands/USA) on recreation, Tomas Jonsson (Calgary) on housing and poverty, Deborah Kelly (Australia) on diversity, Kristin Nelson (Winnipeg) on accessibility, and Stop Violence Against Aboriginal Women Action Group and artist Leah Decter (Winnipeg). Curated by Milena Placentile (Winnipeg).

Acting on behalf of community members, I created scratch cards and placed them in various parts of the city and at lotto kiosks.
