FRONTlines is StorefrontMB’s ongoing discussion series that aims to create a dialogue between the city’s design professionals, developers, and the public with a specific focus on Winnipeg’s built environment, its development, and the foreseeable possibilities for positive growth and experience of the city.

Our last event was on Indigenous Led Development Downtown.

April 27 from 7-9pm

Winnipeg Free Press Cafe

Moderator Lenard Monkman

Panelists Reanna Merasty, Michael Robertson, Rylee Nepinak

On Thursday, April 27, SfMB’s FRONTlines returns to the Free Press Cafe, in collaboration with BEAPrairies. This Frontlines session will focus on recent and upcoming Indigenous-Led Development Projects downtown, celebrating current momentum and excitement, and the opportunity for this to set a precedent moving forward.

The conversation will focus on questions like: What are the factors that will determine the success of these projects? What needs to change so that we can see more Indigenous-led development? Which other vacant sites downtown would you like to see developed? What would you like to see included in the new Downtown Plan? 

The discussion will be moderated by CBC’s Lenard Monkman. Panelists are Reanna Merasty of Number TEN Architectural Group, Michael Robertson of Cibinel Architecture, and Rylee Nepinak, co-founder of Sabe Peace Walkers,

and Anishiative.
