This past weekend, along with my husband Rob, I had the chance to attend a portion of The Carl Dair Typography Workshops in Winnipeg, hosted by GDC Manitoba. World-renowned typographer Rod McDonald, and Patrick Griffin of Canada Type were on hand to facilitate the workshop and share some of their extensive typographic knowledge. The weekend (October 17-19, 2014) consisted of a free lecture on Friday night, and then a full two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday which was part lecture and part expert critique.
I was one of 1200 people sharing a lovely prairie-inspired meal last evening on the Esplanade Riel. GDC Manitoba sponsored two of the 150 tables that made up the full length of Winnipeg’s Table for 1200. What a perfectly lovely way to spend a summer evening… visiting with other members of GDC Manitoba and having a few hours to soak in the best of Winnipeg.
Last night (May 22), GDC Manitoba’s 18th installment of PechaKucha Winnipeg took place at the Park Theatre. The speakers proved to be an eclectic mix of thought-provoking and inspiring PechaKucha goodness, and I can’t wait for Vol. 19 so I can get another taste!
