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 Theo Landry, who suggests a better community would result if we all treated each other with impartiality, in non-judgemental ways:
Presently situated on the main floor of Millennium Library, CNC’s Express Yourself video booth will move around the city and province, providing the opportunity for citizens to have their say on a number of different topics Manitobans are talking about.
The questions will change as the booth makes its way to various neighbourhoods and communities.
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.
In addition to offering suggestions on how to improve our community, Theo Landry also recites a poem he wrote entitled Carry On:
So, if you want to wax poetically, or to weigh in on one thing that would make our community better, go to Millennium 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.
