June 23, 2017, Winnipeg Free Press – Mural’s message of hope, inspiration called heart-gripping

Kirby Boucher, 46, has attended services at Vineyard for 22 years and can’t help but smile at the beautiful mural he walks by every week. When he looks at the mural, Boucher sees hope for his community and for indigenous people around the world. “I see the heart and the colours of the nations helping each other to mend the broken hearts,” he said. “It’s telling everyone in the city that there can be peace and happiness here.” Full Article: http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/murals-message-of-hope By: Ben Waldman Posted: 06/23/2017 4:00 AM | Last Modified: 06/23/2017 10:21...

July 29, 2016, Winnipeg Free Press – Local Article North End: Plaza of dreams

North End’s iconic Selkirk Avenue to become meeting place again “It took almost a decade, a determined group of residents, non-profits and city departments, and a little bit of luck. So in a way, the birth of the revamped Powers Plaza –  its first two phases are expected to be finished this year, the third by next summer – is also a resounding statement about resilience and evolution.” Article Copy: Plaza of dreams – Winnipeg Free Press Full article: http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/plaza-of-dreams-388709581.html By: Melissa Martin Posted: 07/29/2016 5:28 PM| Last Modified: 07/29/2016 9:43 PM | Comments:...
