We’re asking you, ‘What is one thing that would make our community better and why?’
And you’ve been recording your answers at CNC’s new video booth – Express Yourself / Le Poèmaton – a collaborative project of Community News Commons and Alliance Française du Manitoba.
Today’s response is from Mohamed Jailoh-Conteh who says it’s up to everyone to pitch in collectively to create a better city. He believes community life will improve if we create an environment of compassion that embraces all citizens.
CNC’s Express Yourself video booth continues its journey around the province with its most recent move to Louis Riel Library, 1168 Dakota Street, providing the opportunity for citizens to have their say.
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 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.
