What is one thing that would make our community better and why?
That’s the question we’re asking Winnipeggers at CNC’s new video booth – Express Yourself / Le Poèmaton – a collaborative project of Community News Commons and Alliance Française du Manitoba.
The booth records your answers which are then published on CNC.
Today’s response is from Briony Haig, who says an improved transit system and dedicated bike lanes would improve our community immensely:
This week, CNC’s Express Yourself video booth is moving from the main floor of Millennium Library to Louis Riel Library, 1168 Dakota Street, as it continues its journey around the city and province, providing the opportunity for citizens to have their say on a number of different topics Manitobans are talking about.
Visitors to the video booth can also participate in Le Poèmaton, an initiative of Alliance Française du Manitoba, where the public are invited to read and record a poem in French, or in any other language, also to be published on CNC.
Samples of French language poems are available at the booth. One can also bring in another poem, or even recite an original composition.
So, if you want to wax poetically, or to weigh in on one thing that would make our community better, go to Louis Riel Library and Express Yourself.
Check out Community News Commons in the days ahead to view the videos and to find out where the booth is headed next.
